The instant messaging service – LINE has now rolled out a new feature that lets people to talk in a new way that is quite rare to happen. Yes, LINE offers group voice calls to chat groups of up to 200 people.
“Calls can be initiated from within group chats or multiple person chats, and a notification message will be sent to all of the users participating in the chat. The number of people currently participating in the call can also be confirmed from within the chat. An icon is displayed above the user icon of the person currently speaking at the time, enabling users to easily communicate with each other.”
The new feature has been rolled out to its Android, iOS apps and desktop app for Windows too. However, you can expect the feature to get out soon to Mac. The feature is first rolling out to all countries outside of Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, and Indonesia. These countries will follow soon after. These countries hold a huge chunk of LINE’s users and an update like these needs to be rolled out in stages.
