Improved consent screen in LINE Front-end Framework
We have improved the consent screen bundled with the LINE Front-end Framework (LIFF). The improvement is automatically applied to all LIFF apps. There's no need for additional development work.
As before this update, the user can choose to not allow the LIFF app to send messages to chats. But if they do so, unlike before, the consent screen will reappear the next time the user launches the LIFF app.
Changes associated with the integration of LINE@ accounts into LINE official accounts
With the consolidation of LINE@ account plans into LINE official plans, we changed the functionality of the LINE Developers console and the Messaging API as follows:
Changes in the LINE Developers console
Type of created accounts
When you create a Messaging API channel in the LINE Developers console, a LINE official account is created instead of a LINE@ account.
For more information, see Migration of LINE@ accounts. Existing LINE@ accounts will be migrated to LINE official accounts sequentially.
Enhanced Messaging API features
Bots associated with new or migrated LINE official accounts can use the following features regardless of applied plans:
- Get the target limit for additional messages
- Get number of messages sent this month
- Send push message
- Send multicast message
- Send broadcast message
- Get number of sent broadcast messages
Bots associated with LINE@ accounts cannot use these features depending on applied plans.
For more information, see the Messaging API reference.
Migrating your LINE@ account under the Developer Trial plan
We will consolidate the LINE@ account plans into the new LINE official account plans.
From April 18, 2019, when you create a Messaging API channel in the LINE Developers console, a LINE official account will be created instead of a LINE@ account.
After mid-June, 2019, we will migrate the existing LINE@ accounts under the Developer Trial plan to LINE official accounts. The free plan will be applied to the migrated LINE official accounts.
