It’s no secret that LinkedIn’s messaging has been terrible since the beginning. That’s why we’re so excited about the new LinkedIn messaging experience! Not only did they add new features, but they completely rebuilt the website and app from the ground up. This leads to a cleaner look that is ultimately more convenient and more personalized. Newly added features include a chat-style interface for back-and-forth messaging, group messaging, enhanced message organization for easy referencing, and improved push and email notifications.
“We are rolling out a new messaging experience on LinkedIn that offers an easier and more lightweight way to have professional conversations with your connections. We know many of you have been asking for this ability and we’ve taken a thoughtful approach to reflect the evolving ways professionals are communicating with one another today, as well as, the different ways our members are interacting with each other across our international markets.” –Mark Hull
With these updates, it’s now easier for you to have meaningful, yet lightweight, ways to keep up with your professional relationships through conversations with your connections.

According to Mark Hull, they’re testing out new concepts like intelligent messaging assistants that can help suggest people you should message or provide you with relevant information about that person before you start a conversation as well as voice and video.
