Furthermore, on top of the usual features that allow the exchange of text, location info, images, emoji (pictograms) and stickers, a new function which allows users to send video and audio files via LINE’s chat room has been released.
As well as stickers with LINE’s original characters, the new "Sticker Shop" functions as an online store and offers other stickers featuring popular characters from around the world. At the time of release, there will be a total of 15 sets on offer, taking the total number of available stickers to 784.
Of course stickers are available for regular purchase. However, Android users can also send them as gifts to other users via LINE. By exchanging these stickers with other close friends, we believe that this will lead to further promote and increase communication amongst users.
As well as the "Sticker Shop", a new function which allows users to send video and audio files via LINE’s chat room has been introduced (audio messages of up to 180 seconds and video footage of up to 90 seconds). In addition to the existing functions such as sharing photos with ease, these new features allow users to leave voice-mails and video messages, creating a new freedom of use.
As one of the world’s leading global messaging services, LINE will continue to improve the user-friendliness of its services.
