Over messaging apps? Probably not. There are dozens of them and you’re probably using whichever one your network of friends is on. Line is a messaging app that’s really popular in Japan. Today we’re looking at an update to the app for Windows Phone.

We last covered Line going to version 3.2 in January. That introduced general performance improvements, a repositioned send button and more. Since then the app hit version 3.3 and is now at version in the Windows Phone Store.

Version 3.3 introduced the following changes:

  • Added a Sticker Shop where users can download free stickers
  • Improved free call quality
  • The top notification can now be closed by flicking left
  • Changed to LINE notification tone
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements


We won’t lie. The stickers in line are pretty awesome. We also just tried out the call quality and it’s not too bad. One of the parties had a poor connection, so we can’t fully comment on the quality just yet. But it’s great to see the option there. Something WhatsApp doesn’t have yet.

Head to the Windows Phone Store to grab the newest version of Line. Already using it? Tell us your thoughts on it!

Thanks for the tip Josue and Joshua!
