The LINE SDK for Android version 4.0.4 has been released. For more information on download the LINE SDK, see below.

Changes:
  • Made a minor change to the SDK’s authentication logic to fix a problem where onActivityResult does not get executed during app-to-app login.

We will continue to provide improvements so that you can code more easily.

[Android] [iOS] [Web Login] Changes to the LINE Login review criteria

The LINE Login review criteria has been modified. Up until now, a review was required to change the status of LINE Login Channels from “developing” to “published”. However, from now on, LINE Login Channels created on the LINE Business Center will automatically have the “published” status.

For existing LINE Login Channels, you will be able to change the status to “published” from the Channel Console without a review.

Note that the LINE Login review criteria may change at a later date upon the release of new APIs or features. You should also make sure that your app complies with the LINE Login Button Usage Guidelines and LINE Developers Agreement.

[Android] LINE SDK for Android 4.0.2 released

The LINE SDK for Android version 4.0.2 has been released. You can download the SDK from the following page.

Changes:

Known issues:
  • On Android 4.x devices, onActivityResult returns a result of “CANCEL” the first time that a user logs into an application using the app-to-app login. However, the user will be able to successfully log in from their second attempt. This issue is caused by a problem in the LINE app and will be resolved in a future update.
