LinkedIn's old message service on its professional social networking site had always been terribly clunky. It looked ugly, had very little functionality and it was difficult to follow conversations. The company has heard the collective cries of users and has introduced a new and improved messaging service.
The Linkedin messaging function was notorious for being a giant cluster-fuck but thankfully LinkedIn has finally decided to give it a much needed makeover. A chat-style interface has been introduced so following a series of messages is made easier. It almost looks like Facebook Messenger and you can even send attachments, GIFs and emoticons directly through the new LinkedIn chat.
Here's a nice screenshot of what the new LinkedIn messenger looks like on a desktop:
And here's what it looks like on mobile phones through the LinkedIn app:
LinkedIn has started to roll this new feature out to English-speaking countries so expect to see the new interface on your LinkedIn account soon.
