The Financial Times is now available via LINE, the fast-growing chat app. LINE has over 220m monthly active users, mostly in Asia, and is growing worldwide. We are keen to reach new and existing readers wherever they want to get their news, and LINE is an exciting platform for news.

The FT will handpick a selection of Asian and global stories for LINE followers. The FT LINE feed will be a mixture of news and video, around four posts per day. We will also send our followers a weekly alert, featuring a longer read from our Life & Arts section that we think will be worth your time.

I don’t use LINE . What do I need to do?

You need to download the app to your phone, and then follow the instructions. There are versions for all the main systems – iPhone, Android, Windows and BlackBerry. Here’s the download guide from LINE .

I’m an FT subscriber already – should I sign up?

Many of our subscribers follow us on other platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp. Following the FT on LINE may alert you to a great story that you might not otherwise see.
