The popular messaging app Line is the recipient of a new update this week, adding in quite a few new features and improvements for the app that has a huge user base in Japan:
The app, which now has a version number of 18.104.22.1685, has added in a way to send multiple images and preview images at once, along with a way to forward and even delete messages for the first time.
In addition, there's now partial support for receipt of messages from official accounts, along with some Improvements to the navigation interface on Line's main page. Finally, the change notes indicate there are a number of unnamed bug fixes and performance improvements.
Line keeps updating the Windows Phone app on a fairly regular basis, and it's great to see that kind of activity when so many major apps sometimes take months to release new versions. You can download the Line app right now in the Windows Phone Store.
