The Basics

How can I add friends to the Friends list? toggle
You can add friends on the Windows 8 version of LINE in the following 3 ways.

1. Add from Friend Recommendations
Select a user from the Friend Recommendations list and press the Add button by the user you want to add.

2. Official Account Recommendations
Select a user from the Official Account Recommendations list and press the Add button by the user you want to add.

3. Search for a User by their LINE ID

After selecting Add Friends at the top-right of the main page, you can find a search box at the top left. Enter the LINE ID of a friend you want to add. Check the search results and select Add if you have found the friend you were looking for.

On the Windows 8 version of LINE, you can bring up a menu by right-clicking on an empty part of the screen. (If you are using a touch screen device, you can do so by swiping your finger up from the bottom of the screen). Select ID Search, then enter the LINE ID of a friend you want to add. Check the search results and select Add if you have found the friend you were looking for.

We hope this helps!
