LINE is taking mobile call conferencing to a new level with “Popcorn Buzz,” an Android-based free group call app that allows up to 200 participants to simultaneously converse. The Japanese mobile messaging giant already supports text and voice messaging with up to 200 people.
The new powerful group call functionality is perfect for catching up with friends and family, making plans with club members and more. It’s also the perfect replacement for existing paid business-grade conference call services. Popcorn Buzz accommodates both personal and business usage, all for free.
Calls can be made over Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G networks. Note that data charges will apply if used over cellular networks.
It’s easy to get started with Popcorn Buzz. All you need to do is choose a username and upload a profile picture. You can send out each group call’s unique URL via email, text or any other communication method to initiate group calls without hassle.
LINE users can also log in to Popcorn Buzz with their LINE account to get started with group calls right away.
Within group calls, you can see all other members’ icons and tell who’s talking via green dots that light up in the lower right-hand corner of current talking users’ icons.
LINE has officially announced that an iPhone release is in the works, with the implementation of other features such as group video chat, interconnectivity with LINE groups and more.
