Ratings and Reviews
The line between instant messaging and social media is becoming a bit fuzzy—and that’s a great thing. Line offers free texting, voice messages, and video calls, all within its own nifty social network. With the app’s uncluttered, friendly interface, it’s simple to start group chats with close friends, receive notifications from celebrities you follow, or post daily highlights to your timeline. Tons of adorable virtual stickers give your messages added spark, and Line even integrates with select games and apps, letting you effortlessly share your achievements and creations.
Exceptional in Japan, but Overseas Disappointment
In Japan, LINE is amazing! You can connect with businesses, do banking, purchase essential services like grocery delivery, insurance, and mobile phone service, and more, all within this one-stop app that puts a lot of digital power in the palm of your hands. The “by-Japanese for-Japanese” short-form video platform is a great addition, and the versatility of this app is truly impressive. The only downsides are that you’ll need a Japanese mobile phone number, making it challenging for foreigners to fully utilize the app. Additionally, providing your date of birth for age verification can be an inconvenience.
However, when it comes to using LINE overseas, the experience takes a sharp decline. You’re limited to buying a meager selection of stickers and themes, and the LINE official account inundates you with NFT scam advertisements and irrelevant smartphone game promotions. Registering a phone number for certain countries might further restrict your app functionality.
On a brighter note, some countries like Thailand and Taiwan Republic of China offer a more enhanced LINE experience, with access to Japanese services or their equivalents. If you’re located in one of these places, you can come close to the Japanese original experience. So, while LINE shines in Japan, its overseas version leaves much to be desired.
Line apps are confusing and notifications can’t be shut off
Line is a very cute messaging app and I love many parts of it. But they need to do a much better job of integrating it’s third party apps like Line Go and Line Pay.
I had to Google several different sites to figure out how to add Line Go, the taxi app, into my account. It involved finding an obscure page and following it. The page does not show up if you search within the app. I couldn’t even figure out Line Pay but I heard you can only use it with a Taiwan bank account anyway.
Lastly the notifications can’t be muted. My god, this is such a simple feature. If you mute a channel’s notifications (for example a group that is very chatty but you need to stay in it for important updates), the notifications still appear on the badge icon in your iPhone. It makes it seem you’re missing direct messages so you are forced to check Line and discover the notifications are all from the group you muted. It’s incredibly aggravating and a waste of time and attention, please fix this Line.
