The social network LinkedIn announced that it is working on the feature of its own audio networks, as confirmed by the company to TechCrunch, in what seems as if every major technology company is working on a social audio feature similar to Clubhouse, where the Spaces feature has been launched on Twitter, and Facebook is heading to launch a similar service, Spotify makes another service and Mark Cuban has one, and even Slack gets into his play, as the idea of a shared audio space that started in Clubhouse has largely become an exclusive club for tech elites and venture capitalists.
“We are running some early tests to create a unique audio experience linked to your professional identity,” LinkedIn said in a statement quoted by the verege on TechCrunch. “We are looking at how to bring voice to other parts of LinkedIn such as events and groups, to give our members more ways to connect with their community.”
LinkedIn said that the feature will begin beta testing soon, and the app is similar to Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces, as it features a stage of front and center speakers and a list of people in the audience at the bottom of the screen.
LinkedIn is already making itself a destination for content creators with tools such as the new Creator Mode which indicates the user as a creator on LinkedIn on their profile.
