Microsoft’s Teams platform is getting some much-needed updates this year, following in the footsteps of WhatsApp, Twitter, and Gmail. Microsoft Teams chat will now include LinkedIn profiles.
Users will be able to see their colleagues’ LinkedIn profiles during one-on-one conversations. According to the business, the upgrade will arrive in March and will be available to users of Microsoft Teams desktop and web editions all around the world.
Users can read LinkedIn profiles in teams without connecting their LinkedIn and Microsoft accounts, but if they want to, they can do so by following these steps:
- In Microsoft Teams, go to any one-on-one chat.
- From the drop-down menu, choose the LinkedIn tab.
- Select sign-in to connect your LinkedIn account.
- Data from the user’s LinkedIn account must now be shared with Microsoft employees.
- As a final step, connect your LinkedIn account to Microsoft programmes.
While it is not essential to connect your Microsoft account to LinkedIn, it is encouraged for a better LinkedIn experience.
Follow these steps to use Linkedin in Microsoft Teams:
- On your smartphone, go to any Microsoft Teams chat.
- Go to the Linkedin tab to see the person’s work experience, skills, endorsements, and more.
During onboarding or when working on a given project, users can use this tool to learn more about their peers.
