LinkedIn has introduced a new voice message function in a bid to give its users more options to have conversations. This includes messages which are up to one minute long, housed in LinkedIn’s messaging platform.
In a blog post, the company explained that the new feature looks to allow its user to message more easily on the go, especially when it comes to explaining longer or more complex ideas. This is without the involvement of typing and editing a message.
It also looks to allow users to better express themselves and allow for greater ease of multitasking. This in turn allows users to better build a personal connection and effectively communicate. It also looks to allow for a user’s tone and personality to come through, which may sometimes “get lost in translation in written communications”, the blog post added.
The new feature is being rolled out on iOS and Android on mobile, as well as on the web, and will be made available globally in the next few weeks.
