The Line Messaging API provides an interactive communication platform for users with LINE accounts – that is, either a Line official account or the LINE@account. It actually works like a social media platform, such that, a user establishes contacts by being added by other users as a friend or being sent a friend message by the users. Once a user sends a friend invitation message or adds another user as a friend, the API conveys an automated and customized message to the recipient. The recipient’s registered server, in turn, responds with a message acknowledging receipt or acceptance of the request. The API allows users to send push messages or respond to messages in addition to supporting the sending and receipt of images and template messages. Users can also deploy their bots to participate in group chats or one-on-one conversations. The Line Messaging API sends HTTP requests and returns JSON responses.
