LinkedIn is ringing in 2017 with a much-needed makeover. Doing away with the cluttered, confusing and just flat-out terrible interface, LinkedIn is bringing a simpler, cleaner, app-like look, making the navigating task easier.

The new version of LinkedIn is limiting the navigation to seven areas: Home, Messaging, Jobs, Notifications, Me, My Network, and Search.

The new desktop version will be rolled out globally within next few weeks.

The most significant change brought by the professional social network is very similar to Facebook. Remember the private chat design of Facebook? LinkedIn’s new version provides exactly that.

Now, with the latest update, instead of going to the messaging box, you can chat with users directly through a pop-up on the Home screen. The company is also placing chatbots to suggest topics you can discuss, make matches. Eventually, chatbots will perform the task of ‘ice-breaker’.

In a bid to make the news feeds more engaging, LinkedIn’s editorial team will now curate the content to ensure you get relevant content. The team will also suggest people to follow.

The Microsoft-owned company is also expected to bring a universal tap on its platform, “allowing users to look for other professional based upon parameters like people, jobs, companies, groups and schools.”
LinkedIn is also planning to bring back the Premium features that it removed silently last December. However, according to the reports, you might have to shell out more money to experience those features.
