Hi this is Shiho, I am going to explain about albums on LINE app.

Albums function is that you create albums, put photos in it, and share them with your friends on LINE.

The function allow you to organize and save photos which will be unavailable to see after certain period of time.

The storage period and memory capacity is unlimited.

Here, I am going to show you everything about albums on LINE covering how to create, add, and delete photos, organize the order, and save or share videos.

 

Storage period and memory capacity is unlimited for LINE “Albums”

I guess many of you share photos with your friends on LINE.

However, the majority just send photos on chat room and share those.

When I send photos to my friend, it is sent one by one, and those photos fill the screen.

Therefore, I always feel it is difficult to find text messages from my friend.

 

After you receive photos from your friend on chat room, if you do not save them, those photos will be deleted from server in 2 weeks.

After 2 weeks, it can be no longer available to see.

 

This problem will be solved by using LINE albums function.

Even if you want to send several photos, the receiver will receive only 1 album (which means only 1 push notification).

Besides, you can always come back and see the photos because the storage period is not limited.

 

Another appealing point is that the memory capacity is not limited as well.

It is possible to store 1,000 photos per album, and create 100 albums per chat room.

In other words, you can share maximum 100,000 photos with your friends.

It is not suitable for printing because it will be reduced to maximum 1,280 pixel.

But still you can share photos as many as you want.

 

Because of these advantages, albums on LINE are suitable for sharing photos in LINE groups.

If your group chat is always busy, photos will be expired very soon if you forget creating albums.

It is easier for everyone to see all the photos all together as an album rather than opening every photo one by one.

There is one more thing.

When someone join your LINE group, the person cannot see photos sent to the chat room earlier.

Although, albums are always open for even newcomers.
