Chat with LINE users

When a LINE user adds you as a friend, a message room will be created.

You can select the profile of the LINE user you are having a conversation with to add to Contacts.

Your profile on LINE will display your photo, name, group name, account introduction, phone number, and website information. Photos, names, and group names are displayed according to information saved in LINE WORKS.
