LINE Music was recently launched in Japan as a new kind of on-demand music streaming service that's integrated with the existing LINE messenger app. This makes it extremely easy for users to share music with friends, without even having to leave a chat screen.
At its launch, LINE Music provides users with access to more than 1.5 million songs from popular Japanese and Western musicians. The basic and premium plans go for¥500 and ¥1,000, which is equivalent to about $5 to $10 USD. To make this even more appealing, a special ¥300 plan is offered as an affordable option for students.
In contrast to many subscription services that put restrictions on how users listen to music, LINE Music sets itself apart from radio-style subscriptions by giving users complete freedom to choose the artists, songs and the custom playlists that they want to listen to, whenever and wherever.
