LINE lets you call, chat and send photos to others for free, from your smartphone or computer, as well as follow companies and celebrities, and share updates with friends in a social network-style Timeline.

High-quality calls

LINE is easy to set up, allowing you to register with your phone number or email address (the latter option only gives you access to text chat, though).

The voice and video call functions of LINE work very well and the sound quality is excellent. There is a slight delay in calls both via WiFi and 3G, though the quality is still better than both fring and Skype.

Text chatting in LINE is easy, with support for group chats of up-to 100 people, and a good selection of emoticons to add to your conversations. Unlike WhatsApp, LINE allows you to chat between the desktop and mobile versions of the application.

The user interface includes so many options that you can end up getting lost and unable to get back to the home screen or your past chats. This is especially true from Timeline.

More than just your average chat app

LINE is an interesting alternative to apps such as WhatsApp, Tango and Viber, as it allows you to make good quality video and audio calls on your phone for free while bringing in some extra features, such as time-limited messages and a whole host of linked apps. Overall, LINE offers you a lot of features in just one app while still working smoothly and being easy to use.

Changes

  • LINE has added a suggestion feature that displays stickers or emoji related to input text and it now supports Arabic. You can also use the chat room search function, hide chat rooms from your chat list and create LINE Premium Call shortcuts.
