The LinkedIn mobile audience has greatly evolved over the past year. The typical workday has also extended beyond the traditional 9-to-5 as professionals are continuously looking to gain advantage and stay one step ahead, every day.

Today, LinkedIn will unveil a brand new mobile phone experience, completely revamped with the general professional and everyday use case in mind to make it easier for members to quickly discover and engage with the rich professional insights being shared across LinkedIn to help them make smarter decisions from wherever they may be working. They’ve designed the new LinkedIn mobile phone app for every professional, with a richer and more engaging stream and more personalization features.

What’s new?

New design; completely redesigned mobile phone experience from front to back to create more interactions throughout the app.

Richer stream front and center; surfacing up the most relevant and timely professional insights in your stream so you can quickly discover and engage with all of the professional conversations taking place across LinkedIn. This means a stream with tailored updates, news, original posts from influencers and much more. Joining the conversation is now even easier with liking and commenting available directly in your stream.

Tailored to what matters most to you; The new mobile phone experience now offers even deeper personalization options with a brand new navigation page. Slide the main homepage screen to the right to reveal a customizable navigation page, preloaded with the features you find handiest on-the-go. 

Further expanding on localization; With 64% of LinkedIn members now located outside of the United States, the language offerings are expanded with the addition of Dutch and Norwegian for iPhone, and Turkish, Dutch and Norwegian for Android. This brings the total count to 15 available languages for both apps, including Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia, English, German, Spanish, French, Korean, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Swedish, Chinese (Traditional, Simplified), Turkish, Dutch and Norwegian.
