LinkedIn launches a brand new app for Windows 10

LinkedIn launches a brand new app for Windows 10

In fact, customers running this particular hardware combination can't even install the Windows 10 Creators Update, which was released to the public back in April.

LinkedIn is today launching its official desktop application for Windows 10, allowing the Microsoft-owned professional social networking service to be more deeply integrated into the operating system through features like the Windows 10 Start Menu, a pinnable Live Tile, and Action Center notifications.

This is without a doubt, this could only cause more confusion among users, especially because in some parts of the world, like the southern hemisphere, the Redstone 3 update would see daylight during the spring.

Windows 10 on an easel. These alerts will include things like new messages in your LinkedIn inbox, updates about who's viewed your profile, trending news stories in your industry, and other highlights, the company says.

Panthers unexpectedly fire GM Dave Gettleman
Before joining the Panthers , Gettleman was employed for nearly 30 years in National Football League scouting departments. Although he has been a part of seven Super Bowl teams and 16 playoff sides, the 66-year-old has been let go by Carolina .

Although the app is not yet showing up in the Windows Store, a couple of images are provided in the announcement blog post on LinkedIn's site so we can get an idea about the app and its features.

Good news is that users of the app may customize which notifications are displayed and which are not in the Action Center. The bottom line here is that these computers are stuck now at Windows 10 version 1607, and if Microsoft continues its usual 18-month cutoff date, they'll stop receiving OS updates in early 2018.

LinkedIn's new app for Windows 10 is available for users in the U.S. on Monday and its global users by the end of July. It's offered in 22 languages and should have rolled out globally by the end of the month. Microsoft also will continue to make available Windows 10 Enterprise E3 without virtualization rights for those who don't need them. Brits particularly hate seeing "Favorites" instead of "Favourites" in apps, and Microsoft has typically regionalized Windows as a result.

Microsoft acquired LinkedIn for more than $26 billion dollars past year and has slowly been working on integrating the professional social media network into its products and services.
