After WhatsApp, Twitter and Gmail introduced a number of upgrades to their users this year, Microsoft is jumping on the bandwagon to introduce some much-needed updates to the Teams platform. Microsoft is going to integrate LinkedIn profiles into Teams chat.
This allows the users to view their colleagues’ LinkedIn profiles in one-on-one chats. According to the company, the update is expected to roll out sometime in March and be available to users of Microsoft Teams desktop and web versions around the world.
While users in Teams can access LinkedIn profiles without having to connect their LinkedIn and Microsoft accounts, here are the steps to do so if they wish:
- Open Microsoft Teams and go to a one-on-one chat.
- Click the LinkedIn tab.
- Select Sign in to link your LinkedIn account.
- Now the user has to share their LinkedIn account information with Microsoft teams.
- As a final step, simply connect your LinkedIn account to Microsoft apps.
While connecting your Microsoft to LinkedIn is optional, the company recommends it for an enhanced LinkedIn experience.
Using Linkedin in Microsoft Teams:
- Open Microsoft Teams on your device and go to any chat.
- Click the Linkedin tab to see the person’s work experience, skills, recommendations, and more.
Through this feature, users can learn more about their colleagues during their onboarding or while working on a special project.
