The LINE application is a communication app for smartphones which will also offer the ability to carry out group chats. It will be available in the Nokia App Store.
Users will now be able to send instant messages to friends or groups, and send photos and stickers to each other for free. It also enables users to send messages to friends from a PC to a mobile phone.
“LINE will take advantage of our Nokia Notifications API solution allowing consumers to receive chat notifications in the background, saving memory, data and battery consumption,” said Nokia’s head of product marketing for East Africa King’ori Gitahi.
“Another key advantage for the Kenyan market, is that LINE works on both single and dual Sim, providing choice across the Asha full touch range.”
The LINE app is currently used by 130 million people in 240 countries in the world and will now be opened to users of the two Nokia brands.
