TOKYO, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LINE Corporation, owner and operator of the free call and messaging app LINE, today announced the first-ever global release of Sound LINE stickers.1 The sticker set, entitled "Chat with Paul McCartney," features original recordings of world-famous musician Paul McCartney's voice and is available for purchase worldwide via the in-app Sticker Shop.
LINE has pioneered the sticker feature within the world of messenger apps, launching cartoon-like animation stickers as well as LINE Creators Market, an original platform that allows users to create and sell their own stickers. One of LINE's most innovative contributions to the market, stickers are now a fundamental part of messengers everywhere.
The new sticker format released globally today gives users the ability to share original sound recordings from famous characters and celebrities with friends. These revolutionary new stickers can be exchanged in chats and posted to the Timeline, just like any other stickers. Sound stickers featuring famous lines from comical characters and comedians are perfect for adding punch to lively conversations, while others offer users the chance to convey thoughts and emotions that may be difficult to express directly, such as apologies. With the addition of sound stickers to the LINE arsenal, users now have a greater range of communication methods to choose from than ever before.
The "Chat with Paul McCartney" set of sound LINE stickers, released today and available for purchase worldwide, features realistic illustrations of global musician and pop icon Paul McCartney, offering users voice clips of the living legend saying essential phrases such as "thank you" and "good job." McCartney was pleased with the stickers, praising them as "Great fun!" and commenting that "These voice stickers rock!"
The messenger app will continue to expand and improve its line of stickers in order to offer users the richest and most convenient form of sticker communication possible.
