Hi everyone! We’ve released the latest version of LINE for Android (ver 3.8.0) today! Have you downloaded it yet? In addition to improvements to the basic messaging and call functions in this update, we have also added a brand new Brown theme and new Emoji, and increased the maximum length of each message to 10,000 characters!
*iPhone users, don’t worry! A similar update will be available for you soon.

A new Brown theme in cute, natural colors
A new design featuring LINE’s popular character, Brown, has been added to the themes! In case you’re not aware yet, Themes is a feature that can change the look and feel of the entire app, including your Friends list, Chats list, and menu buttons. Unlike the pink, girly Cony theme introduced in the previous update, the Brown theme is based on subtle brown tones, and is perfect even for male users and users who prefer simpler designs!

Limited edition Six Mode item
A limited edition item, Six Mode, will be available from May 22 (Wed).
Lightning quick combos that’ll make you smile! 
Why? Cos only 6 types of Blocks will appear during the first 30 seconds of the game, instead of the usual 7 types! That makes it so much easier to achieve combos and get amazingly high scores!
Available from May 22 (Wed) to May 31 (Fri)

You can send gifts on the iPhone version of LINE by purchasing Coins. You can keep a record of what stickers you have sent and received by going to More > Settings > Stickers > Gift Box.
*Coins can ONLY be used for sending stickers as gifts and cannot be used for purchasing stickers for your own use. 
*When switching devices, please note that Coins cannot be carried over if switching to a device with a different OS (e.g. iOS to Android).

Improvements to LINE’s Notification Settings

These notifications include invitations and notices of new gifts etc. 

You can change the settings as follows:

We’ve also made other improvements, such as adding a Report function  for reporting spammers, as well as increasing language support (Spanish). We have also made a winter version of our LINE icon. We hope you enjoy these new features wherever you may be!

Of course, we will continue to improve our services and will always do our very best to cater to your feedback. 

Thanks for reading and have fun sending those gifts!
