3. [ Line ]

LINE is a Japan-based, cross-platform mobile messenger app with more than 400 million users worldwide . Created in response to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, LINE was originally designed as an internet-based method of communication that did not have to rely on the then-damaged telecommunications infrastructure.

As of the fourth quarter 2013, LINE ranked as one of the most popular social apps worldwide with approximately ten percent of global smartphone users accessing it. Despite strong local mobile messengers, LINE particularly dominates the mobile messaging market in its home country Japan with 50 million users as well as other regional markets such as Thailand and Indonesia.

I guess some of you must be thinking that WeChat should be counted in the Top 3 Messenger Apps , but according to the latest official report LINE outsmarted WeChat here is the report :
