With the recently released update for the PC version (Windows/Mac) of LINE,
we’ve added the new Keep feature that enables you to save text and images within LINE, bringing it up to date with the smartphone version!

What is Keep? 
Keep is your own personal storage space where you can save text, photos, and other content on LINE. It enables you to save and quickly bring up information without having to scroll through your chat history, such as the name of a hot new restaurant or shop mentioned in one of your LINE chats, or the URL of a link you simply want to check out later. Additionally, you can save photos and voice messages without using up valuable storage space on your smartphone.
