LINE also wants to be Snapchat with publications that expire and video calls with effects


We are in the year 2016 and that apparently is synonymous with all the applications they want to a greater or lesser extent be Snapchat. We’ve already seen it on the side of Facebook, Messenger and Instagram, and from the East, do not want to be less as we have seen in the case of LINE Egg.

LINE is updated to version 6.8.0 on Android, and it includes two functions snapchateras very typical: the publications in the Timeline (the mini social network built in) expire automatically and real-time effects in the camera.

Publications that disappear

The social network integrated (Timeline) leads on LINE since time immemorial, but lately its creators are trying to give more prominence. What started out as almost like a story is now a social network quite decent in that you can share your thoughts, photos, stickers, and links between friends-of-LINE.

and the keypad when composing a new publication has been added a new one, the clock. When you press the button, the publication is only be online a day, 24 hours, and will automatically disappear after, leaving no trace. It is not possible to choose another term.


this is Not the first time that LINE plays with the idea. The application had a mode of similar to a Telegram or Facebook that included the possibility of making the messages disappear automatically in a certain time, but the function was removed completely once included the encryption for all conversations.

The timeline gets other enhancements in this update, as is the case of the new possibility to link directly to specific publications or the recording of drafts and continue later. LINE not only wants to be Snapchat, but also Facebook.

Effects on calls

video calls in LINE can now include real-time effects on your face, without the need to install any additional application such as ONLINE Egg. To activate the effects you need to tap on the emojis on the bottom of the screen. Unfortunately, the effects are not available on all devices, so it is possible that he will not appear such icons.


These effects have come first to Android and later exstenderán also to the LINE for iOS. Not seem as spectacular as those of Snapchat, yes.
