Hello, my name is Park Jungjun and I am currently developing the LINE Group Call feature.
One of LINE’s goals in development is Closing the Distance. To make this come true, LINE develops many different conversation services. On this LINE Engineering Blog post, I would like to introduce you to the features and technologies of one of our conversation services, LINE Group Call.
LINE Group Call – Make voice calls with up to 200 people simultaneously
LINE Group Call lets users have conference calls with up to 200 people simultaneously. Calls are made right from the LINE app. LINE Group Call was first released on March, 2016 with a voice call feature. By December, a video call feature was added to LINE Group Call. Using LINE Group Call, LINE users can make voice and video calls with their friends anywhere in the world for free.
