LinkedIn has rolled out updates to its mobile applications on both iOS, Android, as well as to the mobile version of its website. The update brings a major change for the social network, completely revamping the look and core functionality of its application on all mobile platforms.
The first, and the most obvious change, is a complete overhaul of the app’s interface. The new design of the application is aimed at simplicity and content consumption, which, according to LinkedIn, is the reason many of its users visit the mobile site.
The app’s new and improved stream is meant to help you find the most interesting and relevant content and conversations happening across LinkedIn. It includes tailored updates, news, and original posts from influencers, among other items. The new stream also implements liking and commenting on content right from within it.
The new version of the app offers a deeper level of personalization, so like the desktop version, it is meant to show the content that is most relevant to you. The navigation in the app is now customizable, which should help you access your favorite sections quickly. Like many iOS apps, it now features a slide-to-open navigation screen, which can be accessed from anywhere in the app.
The update also adds the ability to follow key influencers, so you can discover and read interesting content right in the app. And as always, bug fixes, stability improvements, and even further localization in other regions, are also part of the deal.
