Linkedin have updated their popular social media Android app to bring a new feature in to play that has been missing from the app until now and that has been something that Android mobile users of Linkedin have been waiting to see added to the Linkedin app for some time. The latest version of the Linkedin app, which is currently standing at version 2.4.7, now provides push notifications for those who wish to use that feature. Users of the app will receive notifications when their Linkedin invitations are accepted or when another user likes one of their posts. Users will also receive a push notification when someone views their page. When users have a new Linkedin alert they will see a flag, a red circle or an inbox envelope on their Linkedin homepage, the symbol shown will depend on the type of alert they are being notified of by the Linkedin app. The latest update also allows users to be able to open jobs on the go, get the latest news and search company pages. Mobile traffic accounts for 23% of Linkedin’s traffic so it really is no wonder they want to cater for almost a quarter of their users by adding requested features to their official Android app. Plus, Linkedin have confirmed that they are already working on the next update to the app, which will let users edit their profiles directly from their Android smartphone. The only other real information that Linkedin are providing regarding the features that might be found within the next update at this stage however, is the obligatory “coming soon” phrase. There is no definite date when the next release is coming to Android but, for now at least we have a solid update newly released, with features that are sure to improve the overall use of the Linkedin app on our Android smartphones.
