On May 11, some iPhone-only features were made available on LINE 7.4.0 on Android. 

Draw on photos before sending them

Sending photos to your friends just got a lot more fun! Now you can trim photos and draw on them in LINE before you send them.

When sending photos, at the bottom of the screen you'll now find buttons to easily crop photos to any ratio, draw using a variety of colors and thicknesses, and add text.

Even if you're setting your profile photo or posting to Timeline, you'll get access to the same photo editing features.

There's no longer any need to edit your photos with another app, get your photos looking great all within LINE!

Make and send stop-motion animations with your photos (iPhone only)

In LINE 7.3.0, you can use your photos to make your own stop-motion animations and share them with others as animated GIFs.

When you're sending photos to a friend, a GIF button will appear whenever you select 2 or more photos. You can select up to 20 photos for one GIF.

Plus, animated GIFs will now play automatically when shared in chats!

You can turn animated GIF auto-play on and off as you like in your Settings.

Multi-task with LINE while in a video call

You can now shrink your video call window to use other LINE features while staying in the call  (available for iOS users on iPhone 5 and up).

The compact video call window can be moved around your LINE screen freely.
