LINE, the world’s leading life platform, today announced the release of LINE Lite, a lightweight version of the LINE app that utilizes less storage space and data.

LINE is used by over 205 million users monthly in 230 countries and regions around the world (as of April 2015). At less than 1MB in size, LINE Lite is a lightweight version of the app that promises to make rich communication accessible even to users in areas where network infrastructure is less developed or lower-end smartphones are more widely used.

LINE Lite installs in 1/20 the time of the standard version , and retains LINE’s core features of text, sticker, and image-based communication. Users can sign up for new accounts on LINE Lite, or carry over their existing LINE accounts. While audio and video calls and features such as the Timeline are not included in this initial release, LINE plans to actively introduce new features in the future.


The app will be released in 11 countries in the first phase, including the Philippines, India, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia. More regions will be supported in the future depending on the demands and needs of users in each country.
