Line VoIP and Messaging App Now Has More Than 100 Million Users

While Skype, Viber, and Rebtel dominate the western VoIP app market with WhatsApp Messenger, Kik Messenger and others dominating on the messaging side, when we look at Asia, we see that Japan’s LINE chat app is growing at a rapid pace in the region; according to the official Line blog, since October, the app has gained a whopping 30 million new users — setting itself a new record — and it continues to gain users at a rapid pace.

Line VoIP and IM is currently available for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone and feature phones and the application is listed on the top apps in 41 app stores worldwide, including Google Play, Apple’s App Store, and the Windows Phone Store.

To celebrate the achievement, Line has released a video which we’ve embedded below, featuring a number of its trademark characters. In addition, the developers are offering special gifts to their users to celebrate the milestone, which users can download by going to the sticker shop and clicking on the “Event” tab.
