Features of LIVE LINE

Broadcast videos using LIVE stickers and filters
You can give a personalized performance using LIVE stickers, which use face verification to change with your expressions and movements, in addition to stylish filter features. You can easily switch LIVE stickers and filters even when in the middle of broadcasting content.

Support broadcasters with comments, Likes, and gift items
Viewers can send comments and hearts (Likes) in real time and participate in live broadcasts. You can show your support for your favorite broadcaster by purchasing gifts to send them more hearts at once.

Each broadcaster can have their own channel, and they go up in the Casts Ranking based on the number of viewers and hearts they receive. Viewers can also increase their Fan Ranking by sending a large number of hearts, and increase their chances of being seen by broadcasters.

Customize your lineup and follow the channels you like
When you follow your favorite channels (broadcasters), you will be able to see their broadcasts on your Top Page. When a channel you are following starts broadcasting, you will be notified so you won't miss it.
