    Try out Messaging API calls in your browser

    We've added a Try button to these sections of the Messaging API reference documentation:

    Clicking Try reveals a form that enables you to test the API call right then and there. You'll need to enter some required information, such as your channel access token (found in the console). Depending on the call, there are also other fields to fill in.

    For now, this feature is only enabled for a small number of operations. We plan to increase the number in future releases to cover more Messaging API functionality.

    We can't guarantee that the appearance of a Flex Message in Flex Message Simulator Update 1 (β) exactly matches the rendering on a target device. A single Flex Message may be rendered differently from device to device. Factors that affect rendering include OS, LINE version, screen resolution, language setting, and fonts.
