Hong Kong, 2 December 2015 — LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network with more than 400 million members globally and more than 1 Million members in Hong Kong, today announced the launch of new LinkedIn mobile app for Android and iOS. The flagship app is rebuilt to develop a mobile experience that is smarter, more intuitive and dramatically simplifies your LinkedIn experience.

The new flagship app embodies LinkedIn’s multi-app strategy, featuring a seamless ability to launch into LinkedIn apps for dedicated and deeper experiences, like Pulse, Groups, Job Search and more.

Ready to try a new LinkedIn experience? Check out these 5 core features that make it easier to connect to the people and news that matters in your professional world.

1.  Your Feed (Home) is relevant content from your network that will aid you during the professional day. For the first time, as part of a lightweight onboarding process, LinkedIn will ask you what content you are interested in. Over time you can unfollow things that are less valuable to you.

2.  Me represents your professional brand. This is all about you — who’s viewed your profile, who is commenting on or sharing your posts. From here, you can spruce up your profile to stay current and fresh.

3.   My Network provides a daily briefing of what’s happening in your professional network. Sync your calendar and it will prep you for the next meeting with the profile of the person you’re meeting, shared connections and shared interests.

4.   Messaging is a casual way to stay in touch, allowing you to initiate quicker conversations in a lighter-weight interface.

5.   Search is now 300% faster, and a lot smarter, so you can quickly find people, jobs and groups you’re looking for.
