LinkedIn Improves It’s Messaging Service with Chat-like Features

by | Sep 1, 2015

LinkedIn, like every other social networking platform has a messaging service that most people hardly ever use or knew existed. To change this school of thought, the business-oriented social platform is adding emojis, GIFs and stickers to encourage its  users in using It’s messaging service.

From today users will be able to enjoy the features common with most messaging apps on the platform. Added to the stickers, GIFs and emojis, users will also be able to attach photos and documents to the new chat like interface.

The new move by the company to improve its messaging service could be as a result of other business oriented messaging apps like Slack and Trello Which people now often use as means of communication when talking about walk related activities and as thus, can pose a big treat to the company’s future.

Though, LinkedIn has hinted it still  has some  secretes up It’s sleeves as regards messaging. The new features will be rolling out to users in the coming weeks on Android,  iOS and web.
