LinkedIn introduces a new audio feature
LinkedIn is set to introduce features to help empower creators. It has rolled out the live audio feature on the platform just like the one Clubhouse has. With this new update, LinkedIn users who are more active on the ‘creator mode” will be able to host live audio events. The event can last as long as they want, they just have to keep in mind the platform’s “community policies of being a trustworthy, safe, and professional provider of content,” says reports on Engadget.
The live hosting is going to help them get more engagements as any LinkedIn user will be able to join it. Also, the event hosting feature is currently limited to creators only. Furthermore, the feature will allow LinkedIn creators to schedule their audio events in advance and share the upcoming talks with their network. LinkedIn has also confirmed that some creators are already using the new audio features to expand their professional networks. This is also helping them to connect with potential clients and reach new followers. It might be coming later in the year, but we might also see Video-centric live events on the platform as well.

Now, the platform is soon to introduce features allowing users to export their WhatsApp data and view status updates in the chats section. Reportedly, this year in January it was evident that WhatsApp could lose its free Google backups, and they’d start counting against your storage sometime in the future. Now it seems that the company is developing a feature to export backed-up data stored in Google Drive, reports WABetaInfo.
The newly released 188.8.131.52 beta starts work on an option at the bottom of the backup settings screen to export WhatsApp data from Google Drive. Correspondingly, there should also be an option that imports the same data back. This new look first appeared in a WhatsApp desktop beta and is speculated to come to Android very soon.
