How To Quickly Mention Everyone in a Line Group Chat at Once

Key takeaways:

  • Mentioning everyone in a Line group chat is easy using the @All feature
  • You can mention specific individuals by typing @ followed by their name
  • Group administrators have additional tools to manage mentions and notifications

Are you tired of manually typing out each person’s name when you want to get everyone’s attention in a Line group chat? Luckily, Line has a handy feature that allows you to quickly mention everyone at once. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to use this feature, as well as some best practices for group chat etiquette.

Using @All to Mention Everyone

The easiest way to mention everyone in a Line group chat is by using the @All feature. Simply type @All in your message, and Line will automatically notify every member of the group. This is a great way to make sure important announcements or questions don’t get missed.

Here’s how to use @All:

  1. Open the group chat you want to mention everyone in
  2. Tap the text input field to start a new message
  3. Type @All followed by your message
  4. Tap the send button

That’s it! Everyone in the group will now receive a notification that they’ve been mentioned.

Mentioning Specific Individuals

In addition to mentioning everyone, you can also mention specific individuals in a group chat. This is useful if you have a question or comment directed at a particular person. To mention someone, simply type the @ symbol followed by their name. Line will automatically suggest names as you type, making it easy to find the right person.

Here’s an example of how to mention someone in a message:

@john What time is the meeting tomorrow?

When you send the message, John will receive a notification that he’s been mentioned, and his name will be highlighted in the chat.

Group Administrator Tools

If you’re the administrator of a Line group chat, you have some additional tools at your disposal to manage mentions and notifications.

Mute mentionsAllows you to mute all @All mentions for the group
Mention approvalRequires your approval before @All mentions are sent to the group
Notification settingsLets you customize notification settings for the group, such as muting all notifications or only allowing notifications for mentions

To access these tools, go to the group settings and look for the “Mentions” or “Notifications” section.

Best Practices for Group Chat Etiquette

While the @All feature is a convenient way to get everyone’s attention, it’s important to use it sparingly and appropriately. Here are a few best practices to keep in mind:

  • Use @All for important announcements or questions only. Don’t use it for every message, as this can quickly become annoying and may cause people to start ignoring mentions altogether.
  • Be clear and concise in your message. When you mention everyone, make sure your message is easy to understand and gets straight to the point.
  • Give people time to respond. Just because you’ve mentioned everyone doesn’t mean they’ll all be able to respond immediately. Give people some time to see the message and reply before following up.
  • Don’t use @All for side conversations. If you want to have a side conversation with a few people, create a separate group chat or use individual mentions instead of involving the entire group.

By following these best practices, you can use the @All feature effectively without overwhelming or annoying your group members.


Mentioning everyone in a Line group chat is a quick and easy way to get everyone’s attention for important announcements or questions. By using the @All feature or mentioning specific individuals, you can ensure that your message gets seen by the right people. Just remember to use mentions sparingly and appropriately, and follow best practices for group chat etiquette to keep your chats running smoothly.


Can I mention everyone in a group chat if I’m not the administrator?

Yes, anyone in a Line group chat can use the @All feature to mention everyone, regardless of whether they’re an administrator or not. However, administrators have the ability to mute or approve @All mentions for the group.

What happens if someone has muted notifications for the group?

If someone has muted notifications for the group, they won’t receive a notification when they’re mentioned using @All or individually. However, they will still see the mention highlighted in the chat when they open it.

Is there a limit to how many people I can mention at once?

No, there is no limit to how many people you can mention in a single message using @All. However, keep in mind that mentioning a large number of people at once can be disruptive and should be used sparingly.

Can I mention people in other Line chats or conversations?

No, the @All and individual mention features only work within the group chat you’re currently in. You can’t use them to mention people in other chats or conversations.
