Line is a free messaging app of Korean origin, running on PSs and smartphones.
Most options in the app, namely, text messages, A/V calls, file sharing, are free. However, you will have to pay for game-related goods and some sticker packs (Line offers its own signature stickers). The app also allows you to share your location and it supports group chats.
Nevertheless, the main feature of this app is the entertainment platform. The games, apps, utility programs – within three years of the app’s existence, users have downloaded all of that over a billion times. Besides, Line has a social network where users can publish posts and comment on them.
The app is mostly popular in Thailand, Japan and Taiwan. In spring last year, the number of registered users in Line got over 400 M.
