2015 - Messenger Line intoruced Launcher app for Android to defeate Viber


Line, the Japanese messenger, has released an Android launcher app. It lets users put stickers on their wallpaper and edit the appearance of app icons, while it includes widget shortcuts, utility apps and an integrated search feature. The Line launcher also recommends apps for download for its users and has souped up notifications for the core Line chat app. Right now it doesn’t seem to have too much integration with the latter service, but we’d expect things to become more optimized with future updates. An Android launcher app makes absolute sense because, not only does it potentially help Line reach people who don’t make use of its messaging app — which counts half of its active user base in just three countries: Japan, Taiwan and Thailand — but it could help the service’s more active users become even more active.
