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

Enjoy everything that LINE LIVE has to offer:
• Check out popular broadcasts, find your favorites, and have fun interacting with broadcasters by sending them hearts and comments!
• Send ten hearts in a row to support your favorite broadcasters with cheer points!
• Collect more and more hearts by:
- Logging in every day
- Watching live broadcasts
- Sharing screenshots
- Following channels
• Boost the ranking of broadcasters you like by sending them gift items or cheer points in the form of hearts!
• Follow your favorite broadcasters and get instant notifications whenever they broadcast!

Features of LINE LIVE
• 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 to support broadcasters
Viewers can participate in live broadcasts by sending comments and hearts in real time. You can also purchase and send items, which send a large number of cheer points to the broadcaster at once. Show how much you like a broadcast with comments, hearts, or items.

In LINE LIVE, each broadcaster has their own channel, and popular channels with lots of cheer points or viewers move up in the ranking.

Viewers who send a lot of cheer points will also raise their fan ranking, increasing their chances of being noticed by their favorite broadcasters!

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