How to Easily Leave Group Chats in Line App

The Line app makes it easy to communicate with groups of people through group chats. However, you may sometimes want to leave a group chat if it becomes too active or is no longer relevant. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to easily leave Line group chats.

What Are Line Group Chats?

Line group chats allow you to communicate with multiple Line contacts at once in the same conversation. Some key things to know about Line group chats:

  • Anyone in the group can add new members by inviting their Line friends or contacts.
  • The group creator can change group settings like the name, photo, and notification options.
  • When someone leaves the group, all members are notified.
  • If all members leave, the group is deleted along with the chat history.

How to Leave a Line Group Chat

Leaving a Line group chat only takes a few simple steps:

On Mobile

  1. Open the Line app and go to the group chat you want to leave.
  2. Tap the menu icon in the top-right corner (three horizontal lines or three dots).
  3. Tap “Leave group” and confirm when prompted.

On Desktop

  1. Open the Line app and select the group chat you want to exit.
  2. Click the menu icon next to the group name at the top.
  3. Click “Leave” and confirm your choice.

That’s all there is to it! The group creator and all members will be notified that you have left the chat.

Tips for Leaving Line Groups

Here are some tips to make leaving Line groups smoother:

  • Give advanced notice: If possible, let the group know ahead of time instead of leaving abruptly. A quick message saying you need to leave prevents confusion.
  • Remove history: After leaving, consider clearing the group chat history from your Line app to remove old messages.
  • Block if necessary: If a group is spamming you with messages after leaving, you can block specific members or the entire group.

Other Line Group Chat Options

In addition to leaving groups, Line provides other options to manage group chats:

  • Mute Notifications: If a chat is too active, you can mute notifications instead of leaving. You remain in the group but won’t constantly get notifications.
  • Report Issues: Report spam groups or inappropriate content instead of just leaving right away. Line admins can then take action.
  • Delete Chat History: If you want to permanently erase a group chat from your Line history, delete the chat before leaving the group.


Leaving Line groups is easy – just open the group, access settings, and select “Leave group.” Let the chat know you’re leaving, remove the history, and block if necessary. With group management options like muting or reporting issues, you can also control busy Line group chats.
