Microsoft's LinkedIn division has built a new Windows 10 desktop version of the LinkedIn app, which it's rolling out this month.
The app, which will be available in the Windows Store by the end of July for all, is for PCs and tablets only, not Windows Phones. Microsoft will be dropping the Windows Phone version of the LinkedIn app and is advising those affected to use its mobile site, instead.
The LinkedIn Windows 10 app is basically the web version in a wrapper; though it does take advantage of some Windows 10 features, it's not a full Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app, say those who've seen it. (It's not yet showing up for me in the Windows Store.)
"With Windows 10 Action Center, LinkedIn for Windows 10 delivers real-time professional updates, including new messages, insights on who's viewed your profile, trending news in your industry and other timely highlights on your professional network."
Microsoft has yet to tie LinkedIn identity and network information into Outlook and Office; push more Sponsored Content across various Microsoft properties; make LinkedIn Learning (including Lynda.com assets) available across Office 365 and Windows; or develop a business news desk across the content ecosystem and MSN.com -- all of which also were on Nadella's original LinkedIn integration to-do list.
