Tech giant Line has begun offering integrated banking services to people in Thailand through its hugely popular social media platform.
Japan-based Line has joined forces with Thailand's Kasikornbank on Line BK, a "social banking" service.
From this month, Thai users can sign up for Line BK under the wallet tab in the Line app and then access a host of financial services.
Customers can open as many as five savings accounts, apply for a debit card, transfer money, make deposits and apply for loans.
Line plans to expand banking services into other countries, including Japan, Taiwan, and Indonesia.
