LINE Messaging API

LINE Messaging API offers a whole new level of interaction with users. The service allows you to engage in targeted, two way, real-time, and automated communications with users.

It allows you to create chatbots which can answer questions and give responses via LINE. You could ask for nearby food recommendations, for example, by simply typing the area you’re in. Then the chatbot would fire back with suggestions, ratings, and maps – as shown in the example below
