Calling or chatting with users on different mobile service carriers is also free. LINE will not charge you, even if you are calling a friend in a different country or using the service while you are traveling.
However, like all other apps, you will be charged by your mobile service carrier for the data that you use. Depending on your price plan, you may be charged each time you connect to LINE, so we recommend using a flat-rate data plan.
Note: With a flat-rate data plan, you will generally not be charged additional data fees when using a 3G, LTE, or Wi-Fi connection. For more details, check with your mobile service provider.
To change your background in a 1-on-1 or group video call:
1. Tap the video call screen.
2. At the bottom of the screen, tap the effects icon > Backgrounds.
3. Select a background photo.
You can set a photo saved on your device as your background by tapping "+". Choose a photo, edit it any way you like, then tap Done.
To remove a background, tap the effects icon > Backgrounds, then select the no background icon at the bottom left.
Also, you can use the iPad's Portrait mode (the mode that keeps you in focus and blurs the background) on video calls. On the video call screen, tap and hold the video call icon, tap System Video Effects, and turn Portrait ON.
Note: This feature is available on devices from 2018 or later running iPadOS 15 or later. See this page to check if your device supports Portrait mode.
