This redesign is meant to be warmer, simpler, more modern, and more intuitive, helping members get more out of the platform. It features a more streamlined search experience to encourage better searchability people, events, groups, and content. Inclusion and accessibility are both core design principles, therefore a dark mode is coming very soon.
Furthermore, LinkedIn Stories are here for all. It’s the same format we’re used to from other platforms but it’s placed in a more professional context.
During testing, millions of members have adopted Stories “to connect more personally and less formally with their peers and friends. In the COVID world, LinkedIn Stories are letting people replace those essential water cooler moments.”
LinkedIn is making it easier to start online meetings. You can start a video call over Teams, BlueJeans, or Zoom, directly from a LinkedIn message thread.
The redesign is starting to roll out globally and should be available to everyone in the next few weeks.
