LinkedIn has introduced a new voice messaging service that's built in to the latest version of its mobile app.

Called LinkedIn Messaging, the feature gives users the ability to record and send audio messages up to one minute long.

Voice messaging is rolling out now in the LinkedIn app on iOS and Android, and you can receive voice messages on mobile and on web. This feature will be available globally to all members in the next few weeks.

We hope this makes it easier than ever to communicate when you want, how you want with your professional community.
Voice messages are recorded by tapping the microphone icon on the mobile messaging keyboard. Users then tap and hold the microphone symbol in the circle to record their voice message and release their finger to send.

The business networking platform is touting voice messages as an easier way to communicate when you're on the go or multi-tasking, but many account holders will likely be wary of the feature given the already high volume of unsolicited messages sent over LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is a free download for iPhone available on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Another feature people won't use.

LinkedIn has lagged WAY behind the rest for years. Recently they've tried adding a bunch of features but many aren't things people will actually use. Instead of focusing on the advertising options (which they're at least 5+ years behind Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram on), they're putting their efforts into weird stuff like this.

I’m not getting all the hate for LinkedIn. I got my current job through LinkedIn because my profile was searchable. And call me crazy but I’m glad recruiters use it. Who doesn’t want to hear about an opportunity for a new job that can pay more money?

LinkedIn is so cringey, I cant bring myself to log on anymore. They tried to turn it into facebook’s newsfeed, but everything posted is literally meaningless drivel: buzzword-leaden posts meant to show how much of a ‘thought leader’ the poster is... Hard pass.

I have a good friend who was a software engineer at LinkedIn, and he had endless stories about how kludgey their systems are... So bad that it’s amazing that their site even functions.
