LINE Labs periodically offers a range of beta features, allowing you to try out some of our latest ideas before they become an official part of the LINE app (but only for iOS).

Here’s the newest addition from LINE Labs, a type of picture-in-picture feature called Mini Browser.

Simply swipe down the opened web browser to make it shrink so that you can see the web browser and your chat at the same time.

Now, there’s no need to click a link and close the web browser and go back and forth. You can keep the web browser open and chat at the same time, on the same screen.

Note: To enable this feature, make sure LINE Labs is turned on. Here's how to do so.

LINE offers you a fun and convenient way to share your life with your friends, family and others. But sometimes, you don’t want your every thought or image to linger online forever. So, for those of you who’d like to take control of your memories and share something just for a short while, we present “Story.”

Using Story, you can share a moment in your daily life as a video, photo or text, just like a normal post on Timeline. However, a Story disappears 24 hours after you post it, allowing you to share more candidly than with a regular post.

LINE has changed the process of how you transfer a LINE account to a new device so now the process can be done more safely. The new transfer process begins with LINE version 9.2.0 — and while the old transfer process will continue to work with previous versions of LINE for now, soon the new version will be standard for all, so you need to be aware of the change.

Ever get surprised by new friend notifications, suspicious offers, or unwanted messages from accounts you don't know? If so, they're probably from spam accounts.

Spam accounts use a variety of methods to try and get your attention. For example, they may pretend to be attractive person or use the LINE logo to appear like official accounts. 

These accounts often want you to click on a link to make you buy a product or sign up for a paid website. Make sure you never click any links sent by spam accounts!

For the latest version of LINE, we’ve revamped the profile screen!

The background image layout has changed from landscape to portrait orientation, which is better suited to smartphone displays. And you can still see the same important profile information like your name and status message.

Here’s a new feature that we think a lot of people are going to find very helpful — it’s called “Reply” and it allows you to quote messages and answer them directly during a chat.

Sometimes when you’re chatting, it’s easy to lose track of what message exactly someone is responding to. Like when you’re trying to answer a friend’s question, but just as you send your answer, your friend asks a second question.  

With Reply, you can quote the exact message you’re responding to, so your meaning is always clear.
