Do you use both WhatsApp as well as LINE? Have you been loving what WhatsApp has done with the WhatsApp web feature? Then you’re going to love what LINE has just launched!
Free call and messaging app LINE today announced the release of LINE for Google Chrome, a free browser extension version of the LINE app which is compatible with Chrome, Windows, Mac, and Linux OSes.
Unlike the existing PC versions of LINE for Windows and Mac OS X, users of the Google Chrome extension version of LINE only have to install the software once to use it on any PC with Chrome installed via their Google account.
In addition to providing LINE’s core chat features, the extension offers many useful features for PC users, such as screen capture capabilities. It also provides users a fast and efficient way to send files up to one gigabyte in size.
LINE for Google Chrome also introduces a new feature called Memos, which allows users to create their own notes or save and arrange text and pictures. Memos expands the number of devices available to LINE users, allowing them to synchronise to-do lists created at home to any other PC simply by logging into their Google account.
We need to note though that in order to protect user security, the Google Chrome version of LINE does not offer an auto-login feature.
Additionally, users must verify their identity via the smart phone version of LINE the first time they log in on a new device. Features such as audio calls, video calls, and the Timeline are not offered in the Google Chrome version of LINE. Users who wish to take advantage of these features should use the PC version of LINE instead.
To install, hit up the Chrome Web Store here.
