What was changed in LINE MUSIC version 3.2.0? toggle
The following additions and changes have been made to LINE MUSIC version 3.2.0:

• Purchase songs
You can now purchase songs, and enjoy an even wider variety of music. When you purchase songs using LINE MUSIC Coins, you can save them and listen to the entire songs anytime, even if you don't have a ticket.

• Set songs as your ringtone
You can now set songs purchased on LINE MUSIC as your ringtone on LINE.

• Offline Music has changed to Downloaded Music
The song limit has been removed, so you can now save more music. The number of songs you can download is only limited by the amount of space free on your device.

The songs you purchase are also saved in Downloaded Music. Your purchased songs won't use up data, so you can play them with your other saved songs without worrying about using up extra data.
