LINE for Windows Phone, Windows 8 Will Be Getting Voice, No Release Date As of Yet

We’ve been getting a number of questions from readers regarding the release of the VoIP feature on LINE for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, and we have some good news and some bad news to share regarding both operating systems.

We were able to confirm through an email from an official representative that Naver, the company developing the LINE application, does indeed have plans to “actively improve all” their features on LINE, including the “addition of the voice-calling function across the various platforms” on which LINE is available, including Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.

Planned, but not yet in development as far as we can tell. Naver is currently working on developing video calling for the iPhone and Android versions of the LINE App, so we’d imagine that would be a top development priority for the company. Still, here’s hoping we’ll be using LINE on Windows devices by the time version Blue hits later this year.

We’ll be sure to keep our ears to the ground for any additional information on upcoming LINE features and will post it as soon as we can get it. Stay tuned.

      I know, it sucks. WP is miles over other OSes in my opinion. Its a pity people can’t see it’s enormous potential.

        I thought you were saying WP sucks at first. I was going to launch into a fangirl rant ;) lol

      Developers need to see the value in developing for WP and the only way they will is if WP market share goes up. Ironically, WP market share won’t go up without apps

    Android and iPhone are getting video calling before we get voice calling?

    Something wrong with this picture…

    No release date, but still good to hear they’re at least planning it.

    • delvin johnson

      It might. I wouldn’t get too frustrated yet, especially with BB10 not doing so well in the U.S. Clear opportunity for WP8 and developers.
