Introduction to LINE:
One of the latest communication apps that is known to have taken a good deal of people by surprise is none other than Line. If we were to go by the facts, we will be stunned to know that this particular app is made use of by round about 180 million users all across the world spread out around 231 countries. One highlight feature associated with this communication app is that it does not have any specific usage limit. To be more specific you can enjoy unlimited free calls & messages with the help of this particular app. Furthermore, it is a known fact that in a number of A grade countries, Line has been bestowed with the title of one of the best communication apps available to date.
The cherry on the cake as far as this particular Naver Japan app is concerned is that it tends to come complete with a number of preloaded cute little stickers. The use of these stickers is that they assist you in communicating with your friends without you having to make use of words. Moreover, you can download these stickers absolutely free of cost. Similarly, this communication app is also known to sport a social network function, with the help of which you can post statuses that can be read by your Line friend circle. In the end, all said and done, we can easily conclude that in spite of this application having a wide array of unique features attached with the same, the free calls & messages feature, still tends to remain an all time favorite among the lot.
Line v/s Whatsapp:
One of the closest competitors of the Line communication app is none other than Whatsapp. At a very basic level, as compared to Line, Whatsapp is known to sport a simpler user interface thus ensuring easy navigation for its users. On an overall level, Whatsapp is known to make available a number of add ons that mainly include space for uploading a profile photo of your choice, Google maps in order to bring to light your current location, huge range of emotions to be made use of in your chats and statuses, means to tailor your chat appearance and above all the group chat option that allows you to have a secluded chat with the various interesting groups in your life including your college group, office group and the sixth floor group among others.

However, one feature that helps to differentiate Line from Whatsapp on a higher ground is the ability of the Line app to make available the free calls & messages alternative for any mobile device, PC or Mac, which is totally absent in the case of Whatsapp. Similarly, Line is also known to support short audio and video messages, which is not always the case as far as Whatsapp is concerned. However, all said and done, it can be rightly observed that not many people have switched to Line, but are instead happy using the updated version of Whatsapp.
Line v/s WeChat:
Yet another spirited rival in the communication apps industry that is known to have set tongues wagging is none other than WeChat. Since WeChat has come out of the kitty of a Chinese developer, it has gained heavy attention especially in the Asian countries. Moreover, a number of highlight features that are believed to set WeChat apart from Line mainly include video conferencing, synchronization between your phone contacts and GPS, secured message storage and of course chats that are free from the clutter of unnecessary advertisements. As far as the interface of this particular app is concerned, it is known to bear close resemblance to the interface sported by Whatsapp.

As you all must be very well knowing by now, like Line goes ahead to offer free calls & messages feature to all its users, on the other hand WeChat is known to come complete with the free video calls feature. However, the icing on the cake as far as WeChat is concerned still remains the Live Chat feature made available by this chat client for the group chats. In the end, we can simply state that the Line app has not been largely successful in driving away WeChat from the communications app industry.
