Line Launching $2 Per Month Music Streaming Service


Just as Tinder started selling discounted music on its app, Japanese social app Line has just launched a music streaming service.

The new service is only available in Thailand, and costs $2 a month.

The experiment, called Line Music, has just been launched on the iOS and Android stores in Thailand.

Line Music lets you listen to music, share it with your friends and groups, and find the most popular songs amongst your contacts.

Line has also created a number of curated playlists, and users can create their own, and share with friends.

The idea was announced in December, and is a collaboration with Sony Music and Avex Digital.

Line also bought MixRadio, a Pandora-style radio streaming service, from Microsoft at the end of 2014 for an undisclosed amount.

Line is a messaging and social app launched in 2011 that has over 205m users, 30m of whom are in Thailand.

Users of the new Line Music app get free access for 1 month, after which they can pay $2 for a subscription.

Last week, Tinder partnered with electronic musician Zedd, to offer his new album at a discounted price for users who swiped right to his profile on the dating app.
