- LinkedIn is in the early stages of testing audio features similar to the app Clubhouse.
- It’s the latest platform to try audio-only content, following Twitter, Facebook, and Spotify.
- “We’re looking at how we can bring audio to other parts of LinkedIn such as events and groups,” a LinkedIn spokesperson said.
LinkedIn is testing out new ways to bring audio-only content onto its platform as interest in the medium surges.
The Microsoft-owned company is the latest tech platform to dip its toe into audio. Newcomer audio chat-room app Clubhouse has added millions of users in the last year and inspired a slew of copycat products from companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Spotify.
One feature LinkedIn appears to be testing is live audio rooms featuring a set of speakers and listeners (similar to Clubhouse), a mock-up of which was first shared on Twitter by app researcher Alessandro Paluzzi.
