The application will also give an option of address book syncing.
This application also has a feature to add friends through the use of QR codes, by line id, and by shaking phones simultaneously.
Some sticker sets, such as those that celebrate special events like the 2012 Summer Olympics, are released for only a limited time.
Default stickers were designed by South Korean artist, Kang Byung-Mok, also known as illustrator Mogi. Only those with an account to the Line application can install and play Line Game games.
Games, including those for the Line Game brand, remain under the auspices of Hangame Japan.
A new joint venture named Line Plus Corporation, also based in Japan, develops overseas markets.
On July 3, 2012, NHN Japan announced the new Line features Home and Timeline.
The features allowed users to share recent personal developments to a community of contacts in real-time, similar to the status updates in social networking services such as Facebook.
By 18 January 2013, Line had been downloaded 100 million times worldwide.
Line is an application that works on multiple platforms and has access via multiple personal computers (Windows or mac OS).
Users can also chat and share media in a group by creating and joining groups up to 500 people.
Chats also provide bulletin boards on which you can post, like, and comment.
At launch the majority of Line Plus shares were held by the newly created Line Corporation (60%) with the remaining shares (40%) held by its Korean parent NHN Corporation.
