Whenever a new social network blows up, other actual ones tend to imitate and create lookalike features.
That’s totally normal, being that over-powering a social network that has millions of users is never wrong.
Take TikTok as an example: As soon as TikTok blew up and everybody was downloading and using it, Instagram came up with Reels and YouTube with Shorts. And as if it wasn’t enough, now Snapchat and Instagram have a “Remix’ feature that allows duets!
What are the new Voice Rooms on LinkedIn?
Clubhouse has been a huge trend lately. We’ve covered a whole guide to what you should expect from it and whether it’s worth trying for your small business or not. People are loving the privacy and every single discussion that rises in different rooms.
Everyone can choose their desired room to join and get information, learn more, and discuss.
Now, LinkedIn is working on voice rooms, just like Clubhouse.
According to LinkedIn, this update was highly required because everyone was looking out for new ways to communicate. And what’s better than a trending feature?
Of course, we understand that this social network tends to keep it all professional. Also, this new feature will only be available on its app.
According to techcrunch.com:
“We’re seeing nearly 50% growth in conversations on LinkedIn reflected in stories, video shares and posts on the platform,” Suzi Owens, a spokesperson for LinkedIn, said when confirming its audio feature’s development. “We’re doing some early tests to create a unique audio experience connected to your professional identity. And, we’re looking at how we can bring audio to other parts of LinkedIn such as events and groups, to give our members even more ways to connect to their community,” she said.
