Microsoft unveils its new LinkedIn app for Windows 10

Microsoft has today unveiled its brand new LinkedIn app built from the ground up for Windows 10 users. The new app, which starts its rollout in the Windows Store today, appears to be a UWP web app with a few Windows 10 integrations such as a Live Tile and toast notifications.

In an announcement on the official LinkedIn blog, the company said:

The LinkedIn app for Windows 10 makes it easier than ever to connect to opportunity, work smarter, and tap into your professional potential. It is easily accessible from your Start menu and taskbar, and you can also pin a Live Tile so that when you click on Start, you never miss important highlights from your connections.

While the app itself being a web wrapper will disappoint many die-hard UWP fans, the Windows 10 integrations may actually prove to be useful for those who do use LinkedIn on a daily basis. No longer will you need to manually check the site for notifications, as they'll now popup directly on your desktop.

Microsoft says the app is now rolling out in the Windows Store for Windows 10 users on PC. No mention of this app working on Mobile, unfortunately. We'll update this post with a link to the app once it becomes available. In the meantime, are you happy to see a LinkedIn app for Windows 10?
