LinkedIn Messaging gets a Face Lift

In a bid to make LinkedIn communication more tailoured to individual users, the platofrm is launching new features to make conversations a bit more organised.

6 new improvements

LinkedIn has outlined several innovations designed to make exchanges, as they say, “more useful and enjoyable,” and there are a half a dozen additions to be excited about.

  • Users can now stretch out the compose box of their LinkedIn message centre to communicate and write those important responses with the freedom of seeing all that you have written.
  • Share your attachments on-the-go with the new ability to send files from mobile directly through the LinkedIn app.
  • Send emojis via desktop with the brand new “emoji picker” which allows users to select emojis by scrolling through a list of keywords and category types.

And the rest

  • It's now easier than ever to manage group messages in the LinkedIn app, making it simpler to sort and organise alumni, coworkers, and peers of different industry.
  • Mention people in your messages thanks to the handy new @ symbol that will automatically attach itself when prompted.
  • Quickly copy and paste images to the internet to help make messages more visual without something so cartoonish as an emoji.

LinkedIn has long been one of the best listeners when it comes to their own community, let's see if these updates increase the platform's traditonally mediocre engagement levels. 

What are your thoughts on the latest additions? Do you see value in one or more of LinkedIn’s latest features? Tell us what you think in our comment section.
