LinkedIn is launching a dedicated app for Windows 10 to take advantage of your Windows action center.
LinkedIn’s noteworthy notifications
On the heels of Microsoft’s $26 billion acquisition of LinkedIn, the popular employment platform is getting integrated with Window’s operating system for more direct notifications.
Described as a basic web wrapper of Windows 10, notifications will be managed from within the app to curtail constant pop-ups and undesired spam.
This isn’t your parent’s LinkedIn
Microsoft is billing the new app as a “more engaging and fully integrated LinkedIn experience that is quickly accessible from your Start menu and taskbar,” which sounds about like any other installed app.
Creating a reliable hub for new messages, insights, employment trends, and connections, appears to be the main appeal of a PC specific notification system.
For some this will be an excellent addition to their job hunt repertoire, for others, it may be an unnecessary addition.
