About LINE LIVE toggle
LINE LIVE lets you watch live broadcasts by other users and make your own. 

Make broadcasts more exciting with LIVE stickers and filters
You can give personalized performances using LIVE stickers (which use facial recognition to change with your movements and expressions) and stylish filters. Switching between LIVE stickers and filters is easy, even in the middle of your broadcast!

Send comments, hearts, and items in broadcasts to show your support
Viewers can participate in broadcasts by sending comments and hearts in real time. You can also purchase and send items, which send a large number of hearts to the broadcaster at once. Show how much you like a broadcast with the number of hearts you send.

Each broadcaster can create their own channel, which moves up in the broadcast rankings based on the number of viewers and hearts they get. Viewers can also boost their own fan ranking by sending lots of hearts, which improves their chances of being noticed by broadcasters.

Follow channels so you'll never miss a broadcast
If you follow your favorite channels (broadcasters), you'll get a notification when their live broadcasts start, so you'll never miss them!
