At SUMO, we realize that the need for choice in messaging services has been among the most popular feedback from our users. Although the development of third-party applications such as these is out of our control, and dependent only on the interest of each developer, Mozilla has been working closely with partners to ensure that our user’s voices are heard.
With this in mind, we are happy to announce that Line, the popular instant messaging service with over 300 million registered users worldwide, is the newest addition to the world of Firefox OS!
This application is fully compatible with all the other available platforms, making it much easier and fun to stay in touch with friends and family. The development of this app supports the idea of Firefox OS as the future of mobile, providing openness, innovation, and opportunity on the Web.
You may download Line by simply searching for “Line” on the Marketplace, or by tapping on the following link from your Firefox OS device:
There are many other choices in the Marketplace that allow users to communicate with each other. Loqui and ConnectA2 are available and allow some compatibility with Whatsapp, while Facebook and MessageMe allow for some additional communication options.
We are looking forward for many more amazing apps to sprout and populate our ever-growing Marketplace in 2014.
