The idea of “self-destructing” messages, i.e., messages that automatically disappear after a set time, has all but become a staple in messaging apps since it was made popular in Snapchat. Among the apps that have adopted a similar transient approach to messaging are Tinder, WeChat, Path, Gloup, Facebook Messenger, and perhaps most notably, Facebook's Slingshot.
Line is the newest addition to that group.
Thanks to its latest update, Line now offers “hidden chats,” which are messages that are automatically deleted after a predetermined period. To send and receive hidden chats, just tap the name of the friend you're chatting with at the top of the chatroom, and select the new Hidden Chat option in the drop-down menu. Note, though, that hidden chats not may not be supported yet in your country.
The new Line update also brings improvements to Timeline notifications, design tweaks, and bug fixes.
