LinkedIn has announced new messaging features to give users more ways to communicate and more control over their conversations and messages.
The professional social media platform will soon add the feature to switch the conversation from chat to face-to-face using Microsoft Teams, BlueJeans by Verizon, or Zoom directly in your LinkedIn messages.
The platform is also adding a video meetings feature. Whether you want to start a fresh conversation or continue an ongoing one, click on the video icon next to where you’d type a message. A pop-up window would appear that would take you to where you can choose from Teams, Zoom, or BlueJeans and a prompt to sign in.
Users would also be able to edit their messages and delete attachments sent by mistake. As per the website description, to use this feature on mobile, “press-and-hold or double tap on the message to open up a menu of options. On desktop, hover over the message until you see a pop-up with “…”. From there you’ll see the options to edit or delete.”
Some of the other new features include emojis, bulk action delete, inviting others to an ongoing conversation with control on keeping the original conversation history private.
