LinkedIn has taken a number of steps in recent months to build out its chat experience, and it's continuing that process with its latest update. As announced in a new blog post today, LinkedIn is bringing voice messaging to your chats, letting you send audio messages of up to a minute in length to your contacts.
You'll be able to check your voice messages on mobile and the web, and getting started with them is fairly simple. Just tap the microphone icon on your mobile keyboard, then tap and hold the microphone in the circle to start recording. Once you release your finger from the microphone, your message will send. If you make a mistake before sending, you can slide your finger off of the microphone to cancel the message.
"Whether you're responding while walking or multitasking, or need to give an in-depth explanation, voice messages let you more easily and quickly communicate in your own voice with your connections," LinkedIn says.
It seems Microsoft and LinkedIn are attempting to make LinkedIn as capable as other dedicated messaging apps, such as Skype and Facebook Messenger, among others.
If you're curious, you can now send LinkedIn voice messages via the service's mobile apps.
