Line, a top instant messaging and voice calling app, developed after Japan’s big earthquake in March 2011, has launched a free Hindi-English translator bot for the Indian market that enables Line users to translate Hindi to English and vice versa. The Japanese messaging app aims at making communication easier among users, offering a simple and fast way to get in touch with family and friends.
With this new translator bot feature, users can translate messages within the Line app, and can also add friends to join a group chat, breaking any existing language barrier and improving all communication channels. To start translating messages between two persons, you need to select “EN-IN” or “IN-ENG” translator from the News/Tools menu as a friend, and choose chat. It can also be used to translate message in groups.
Given the fact that Line messaging app has over 30 million users in India, this new feature can help the company to expand its current database, becoming a serious competitor for other two providers of messaging and voice call app, WeChat and Viber.
