You can now stream live video in your chats!

LINE's new Live feature enables users to stream video in real time within group chats and chats with multiple friends.* 
*Not available on some Android devices and all iPhone devices 4S or older.

Live in-chat video streaming is perfect for...

You decide how much of your chat screen goes to displaying video. Pick from several options including standard—displayed by default at the top of the chat—to full screen and even one-eighth of the original size.
