Line: easy ways to find and add new friends

First of all, let‘s find out whether your list of contacts is in your app. Your contacts are available right at the bottom menu, it‘s called Friends.

Here you will find contacts from your phone book that are Line users. Feel free to chat individually or in groups with these people, call them, as well as use any other app‘s feature for your communication.

In case there is no one in your Friend‘s list, make sure you‘ve allowed the app to have access to the contact list of your device. To check whether the app is able to use your contact list, go to More — Add friends, and make sure the Auto-add friends option is turned on. By the way, you can also refresh your list of friends by tapping a circle icon with arrows located to the right of the menu. The settings can be also changed here.

If you would like to find and add new people to join the app, there are several methods you can use for these purposes. To get into the invitation menu, tap More — Add friends.

  1. Choose Invite.

In this case, you will be able to pick up an option on how you would like to invite new people to join Line. In case the candidates accept your invitation, they will start using the program and become your Line app contacts.

The Invite option has different sub-menus. There are Text message, Email, WhatsApp, and Facebook.
