Line announced a batch of new services inspired by international tech giants

The company's 2019 annual conference saw a trove of new services announced for users in Japan, which remains Line's largest market, including:

Line Score: an AI-based credit scoring system, think Alipay/China

Line Duet: this automates calls for things like restaurant booking, think Google Duplex

Line Mini Apps: these allow businesses to make simple apps that don't require a download, think WeChat mini programs

Line Stickers Premium: ok, this one is authentic and cool -- this is basically a monthly subscription that allows you to feast on Line's buffet of stickers
