Using LINE on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install LINE on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

  • Many problems

    By Dkac
    My keyboard will randomly switch to default, can not use on 2 device without erasing the other device, my older ipad is 16 gig and line chat takes 1+ of it unless I go into each chat and delete photos and messages( i have lots of chats for my game, many are used rarely). Give us a quick way to clean space on device such as delete all but last 10 messages in each chat unless marked don't delete(a simple solution it would appear to me). By doing so i could keep wasted space on my device to a minimum. I understand that many probably have pleanty of space on device but not everyone does. I personally don't like line chat app but most who play game i play use it. They were years getting ipad to work at all. I don't believe that the company puts customers first. Use to be for a long time you had to use a phone number I had ipod touch, now i can use email address but I'm still limited to one device what is the reason for that? Every quality chat app i have tried I can use on 2 device at at the same time. I'm not even asking for that I would just like the option to have on 2 device at once. The plus side is great stickers and enough are free that I gave 2 stars instead of 1 star. Update. I just got a new iPad took me a very long time to figure out how to bypass the text to phone ( that I don't have) in order to log in, monkey's could do a better job. Still 2 stars!!
  • Pretty good.

    By doglover9754
    So I’d say Line is like the best thing that has ever happened to me since I’m not allowed to have a social media account. It’s easy to use, I can stay in touch with all my friends and family who have the app themselves, and hey, who doesn’t like personalization?! Line allows you to personalize your app so it’s looks are to your liking and you can even add in some stickers. On that note, let me just say. LINE POINTS ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET. You NEED Line points to get those personalized themes and stickers. You NEED Line points for your Line to not be boring. But there’s like NO WAY for you to get Line points. Of course there is the option of “follow the Line Points account for free Line points”. I tried and then realized that there is an EXPIRATION date to how long your point activation lasts. And this can only be done ONCE. What’s worse? They only give you 5. It says 20! What can you do with 5 points? It’s pretty much like “I’ll give you 20 points but I didn’t feel like it so I’ll give you 5”. There is no system where you can accumulate more points over time which I think is needed. The only way to get points is from gift cards or hacking. And we all know you don’t want any of your personal info to be leaked right?
  • Mobile to mobile issues

    By LordAzdrin
    Over the 2 years I’ve been using LINE now I have liked it better than other chat apps, however, whenever I switch phones and try to log In it tells me that either my email or password is unrecognizable. So I tap the forgot password link and enter my email to reset it. BUT! LINE has no record of my email ever existing?!? 🤬 twice now it has done this. I’ve had the same and ONLY email for 15 years. Used it both times to open new accounts so I could chat with my buddies halfway across the world but I swear. One of my games has switched to discord over these issues and if the other one does I’m dropping line completely. Listen to me, you are losing customers over stupid issues. This is neither a new problem nor a complicated problem. I already refuse to spend money on your app anymore where I used to buy stickers left right now I am considering dropping you completely as have many that I know over these very simple and yet continually ignored problems. Fix your house LINE Or soon you’ll find you have no customers at all
  • Tons of bugs iPad review

    By aquablastxyxy
    ***changing my review to 1 star because I’m tired of logging in over and over on my iPad. FIX YOUR APP!!!! I have spent over $40 on stickers and have used this app for over 3 years. Here are my complaints: As others have noted, stickers that used to show up as suggestions DISAPPEAR until you delete and re-download the sticker set. Lousy way to sort sticker sets. I have 90+ sticker sets and sorting them manually one by one using the cumbersome tool literally take 20 minutes. No way to assign your own stickers a text shortcut so they will pop up as suggestion. Seriously, it’s been years already and this is an incredibly basic feature. iPad app doesn’t log you in automatically like the iPhone version. Seriously? It doesn’t even have option to remember th email address\username either? No way to synchronize chat history across iOS devices? Really? Even aol instant messenger has this basic feature. Sticker packs completely disappear sometimes. I know for a FACT I have purchased and used the stickers from the sticker set, have chat history to prove it. But it disappeared from my list of purchased stickers with an option to purchase again? Lame. This is overall a great app, so I will give 2 stars instead of 1 but you seriously need to fix the bugs and provide the basic features. Especially the stickers disappearing until you redownload them. Not everyone wants to go through your insanely clumsy sticker sorting process over and over.
  • Love the stickers, but...

    By saranghate
    My boyfriend and I love to use LINE for its stickers! It’s the only app we use to message each other, and there’s so many stickers to choose from. I admit I’ve spent more on stickers than I should have, but I can’t help it!! They’re too cute! I do wish that there weren’t region locked stickers... I recently bought an Apple Watch and am very disappointed in the watch app... Not being able to view read messages has really gotten annoying, because I tend to send stickers and respond. Also, not being able to use scribble has made it difficult for me to reply to any messages at work. Another issue is the fact that I cannot use the stickers I paid for. Understandably it may take some time to be able to configure it to share the stickers, but I would love to at least be able to choose a set that I can use... the default ones aren’t exactly my favorite.. I hope one day they will be able to update it but as of now I’m stuck using KakaoTalk if I want to message friends via my Watch.
  • Chat data

    By Prime32
    So earlier today I was on my iPod but had to run an errand so to stay in touch I got the app on my phone. What the heck is the point of me having to log in and etc if you just DELETE all my chat info anyway. I don't know any other kind of social app that doesn't keep msg data if logging in with the same acc. The chat back up is cool but that shouldn't be necessary to not lose chat info, or make it so it does that automatically. Apple products have automatic back up, you guys should do the same. I mean frankly I'm vexed right now but that doesn't change the fact this is an issue you guys should work on. Also stop getting rid of free stickers you guys have had forever (years). When you take away from what you have, you just make yourself less valuable. I joke fight my friends because they prefer Discord over this and honestly I can’t blame them. Stop taking away from the little you have to compete with. Oh and I’ve bought stickers through the years, so I’m a customer, not just a free-loading opinion.
  • Quality bump please!

    By Hal Hallie
    I absolutely adore LINE! My friends and I are rather active and share a lot of our own content on notes/albums/timeline which comes to why I'm not at 5 stars. It would be amazing if LINE could keep the original quality (size and format) of images uploaded to chat, notes, albums, and timeline. I know there's settings for chats where you can choose between low, standard, and high (standard and original for computer) for sending photos in chat but I've seen no option for that on timelines. Even if you tap for the original quality to be sent, LINE compresses the image to a size it can handle and if I remember correctly it was 20MB? Something like that but I would really like for the actual original images to be sent to fully appreciate the images my friends and I share with each other but besides that grade A app!!
  • Love the App

    By iloverewards123456
    I don’t know why lots of people are giving bad reviews on this app. I haven’t had any issues. I love the animated stickers a lot as well as the animated stickers with sound. I would really like to see lots more Disney animated stickers with sound in the future, due to those being my favorite stickers to buy. And there is very good deals on token prices and really love that. I’m not much of a big spender but when I see something I really like and can get it for cheap I always go for it but still careful not to go to crazy at the same time lol. Thanks so much for this awesome app! I was very hesitant at first but had lots of people persuade me to get this app. So I downloaded it and haven’t stopped loving it since I downloaded it. Keep up the good work!!!! And I look forward to any new and exciting updates.
  • Best chat app

    By A2009
    Update: I’ve been using Line for years, but I don’t like it as much as I used to. First, the spam problem is out of control, I constantly get added and messaged by fake accounts and Line seems to have no way to address it. And second, when friends add you they show up in a tiny screen all mixed together with the spam adds and recommended friends. It’s so easy to miss the initial request, and then later have no idea who is a real friend or not, so I allow non-friends to send me messages. Which of course contributes to the spam problem. Line needs a clean way of dealing with friend requests, like Facebook. Original: I just started using Line and now prefer it to Whatsapp, Viber, etc. I have had several int'l phone calls- even without wifi its super clear and of course free! The stickers are also cute and fun to use. I don't get nagged to log in like other people, lucky me I guess. Great app!
  • Forward Thinking

    By carlogbaltazar
    Out of all the messaging company apps and having been able to use all of them quite extensively, the verdict for me would be that Line is the most forward thinking and practical out of all of them. The things that Line offers really targets the global market unlike the others. WeChat only focuses on China, KakaoTalk is very much popular only in Korea, WhatsApp and Messenger are well, on targeted to US and European consumers because it’s hardly ever used in Asia. Line on the other hand has a very even consumer base and this is what stands out with them. They are a Japanese base company but targets the entire market which is always good. Their camera is also quite feature rich and very fun to use. It can practically replace the default camera app of the iPhone. Japan always gets it right, man.
