The new streamlined version of LINE known as “LINE Lite” is now available worldwide, except for a few specific regions.

At less than 1MB in size, LINE Lite is a lightweight version of the app that promises to make rich communication accessible even to users in areas where network infrastructure is less developed or lower-end smartphones are more widely used.
LINE Lite installs in 1/20 the time of the standard version*, and retains LINE's core features of text, sticker, and image-based communication. Users can sign up for new accounts on LINE Lite, or carry over their existing LINE accounts. While audio and video calls and features such as the Timeline are not included in this initial release, we'll continue to add new features in the future.
*When installed under the same network conditions.

LINE Lite was released in 11 countries in the first phase of the app’s launch, including India, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia. The app was well-received by users, and except for a few regions, a strong demand for LINE Lite has led to a worldwide release of the mini version of LINE.

We'll keep working to bring the fun and convenience of LINE to more users around the world!
