Timeline posts are getting a lot more fun with LINE 7.5.0, as we’re adding the ability to change the background color of your posts and add animated text.

We're also making LINE even more convenient, letting Android users easily back up and restore their chat history.

(You will be taken to the relevant app store.)

Add background color and text animation to Timeline posts

Want to make your posts stand out from the crowd? Try giving them a new look with a background color of your choice, or make them come to life with some animated text! You can use both of these features on posts of up to 50 characters.

Tap the T button in the bottom-right of the screen to select your color or animation. There are five animations to choose from, including zooming text and messages that blink onto the screen.
