Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn has resulted in the service launching a dedicated app on Windows 10 after multiple different social platforms have done the same and basically did everyone but succeed. But I suppose LinkedIn will have an easier time with their Windows 10 app since they’re owned by Microsoft. Stil, it doesn’t really make sense to me.

I guess one nice perk of having the LinkedIn app on your Windows 10 machine would be to manage notifications rather having to go through Google Chrome or something. But still, the app is essentially the web version of the service with a new UI on top, something I’m sure could be achieved and delivered to all users. this also doesn’t help to make the case this app is even worth downloading.

But hey, if you’ve been dying for a LinkedIn app on Windows 10, you can download it from the Windows Store once it’s live. The company will roll this software out gradually over time to everyone who doesn’t speak English.
