LinkedIn rolls out location-sharing​ options

The professional network is continuing its effort in enhancing its messaging platform as per its users’ demands.

It has announced that users can now share their location, or a location nearby, with their connections directly in LinkedIn messaging to coordinate meetings. It explains the new feature as follows:

“We’ve heard from many of you that this feature would make it easier to coordinate meetings — now you no longer need to switch around to multiple apps just to send a proposed spot to meet. To send a location to a connection, simply tap on the map pin icon in the message compose box in our iOS or Android app, search for a meeting place, and tap send.”

This feature is only available for mobile users; however, the recipient of the location can view it on both desktop and mobile.
