Isn't it "Line" in Japan? Europeans seem to like "WhatsApp".

Right, Whatsapp isn't of any relevance in Japan or Korea, it's more of a Philippine, Indonesian thing. Not sure about Europeans, they seem content with SMS.

Line has 400million. I like Line, it's good that it's the default in Japan, every smartphone user I know here has it so group messages are very handy.
