    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.

    Privacy policy and terms of use

    Now you can set your own privacy policy and terms of use for your app in your LINE Login and Messaging API channels.

    In the future, we will add links to your privacy policy and terms of use for your app in the user consent screen of LINE Login or your LINE official account.

    Enhanced Messaging API features

    Bots associated with new or migrated LINE official accounts can use the following features regardless of applied plans:

    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.

    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.

    Console: We changed how to check the number of your bot's friends

    We moved information related to the number of your bot's friends from the LINE Developers console to the official account management tools. We removed this information from the "Number of friends" tab on the "Statistics" tab of the Messaging API channels.

    To view the number of your bot's friends, click the Account Manager Official Site button in the "Number of friends" tab. LINE Official Account Manager or LINE@ Manager will open according to your account plan.

    To use the official account management tools, you need separate access permission. If you cannot access these tools, please contact the tool administrators of your organization.

    We will remove the "Number of friends" tab from the LINE Developers console on March 26, 2019.

    [Update] Change to the imagemap message

    We decided not to make the specification change of the imagemap message that we announced on November 14, 2018, for compatibility. We apologize for any inconveniences caused and appreciate your understanding.

    You can continue to send imagemap messages even if you set actions in the area that does not fit the width and height of the image specified by the baseSize property.

    However, the layout of such imagemap messages might be broken on the user device. We recommend setting actions within the area that fits the width and height of the image specified by the baseSize property.
