LinkedIn Project Voyager is a Brand New App that’s Smartphone Focussed

October 19, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LinkedIn was one of the very few platforms that stood unaffected by the evolution of the smartphone app. The scenario has changed, and more than 50% of its data traffic is directed to, and from smartphone devices.

Realizing this, they are now grounding up an entirely new smartphone platform, which scribbles of the desktop-centric utility its original version holds.

It’s codenamed Project Voyager, and was introduced during the LinkedIn Talent Connect conference in Anaheim, California by chief executive Jeff Weiner. The very life of the new app, as it seems, is that there lies no more features that stand like mere replication of what’s offered in the desktop version.

Instead, LinkedIn is moving with the flow, and has designed an appealing app for its mobile user base.

The prime window of the new app is split between many vital segments you never want to miss out on a smartphone, like the Home, My Network, Message and Search options.

Every feature comes with distinct traits that go far beyond its previous version in terms of the swiftness. The Me feature has got access to profile views and other stats like you have in the desktop edition, but in quick-access manner.

The update segment is split between the Home and My Network tabs. The former remains unaltered, but now has got deeper updates of photos from your circle, while the My Network tab is the new dedicated space for job updates.

Besides, there’s also an app launcher being designed, which hasn’t got much under the lights as of now.

The app is expected to pop-up as an update for the current app in a few weeks time, although with it being within the beta phase. The update will cover Android, iOS and also mobile web versions of LinkedIn.

Blackberry and Windows Phone versions won’t be having an instant update although.
