Just to know, why would you want note know when the other user is typing a response to your text?
I don't feel comfortable knowing when am I writing them or when am I online or not. sometimes I would write something and then delete it and sometimes I don't like to show my self online to people or talk to certain people... I know you can do that on Whatsapp but you have to change your privacy settings but since it's by default there's nothing like that on Line it feels better. You have more privacy.

In our case we need to know when the user is typing so we can continue the conversation when is prompt interactive is necessary (though not on all cases).  

How can we be sure that Line does not has that feature? We try searching their website but no answer.

By any chance do you know of one?
Why not use Whatsapp? I know of Wechat and IMO as well but can't remember if they have the typing indicator to be honest. maybe you could give them a try.

We do.  Is that we are trying to find some link talking about the non-existent feature so we can tell our boss that Line doesn't have it and to officially end it and stay with whatsapps.  By any chance you know of one?

FYI:
Just to let you know why we need to see if the other user is texting.  By not seeing what the other is texting, individuals tend to change subject without finishing actual conversation.  If the other need continuity on a subject, it tends to force the user to answer the latest text and not the continuity of the subject at hand; subsequently return with their answer of the subject.  When this happens, when we check out IM history is hard to follow specific subject we need to find.

If Line doesn't have this feature of seeing the other user is typing, is there a 3rd party we can install? If not, we need some sort of PDF or link of Line referring to this subject (our boss has group that uses WeChat and all has change to Line).
