The live, Clubhouse-like audio feature LinkedIn confirmed it was working on last year will debut later this month in beta as part of the company's new events platform, according to a company blog post. From a report: Microsoft-owned LinkedIn said last March that it was doing "early tests to create a unique audio experience connected to your professional identity," which was confirmed in the blog post by Jake Poses, LinkedIn lead for video, creators and events. "This month, we're taking a big step forward and building on the success of LinkedIn Live broadcasts by launching an entirely new interactive events experience that allows our members to more actively participate in the conversation," Poses writes in the post. Users cam participate in live conversations, join speakers "on stage" as part of the discussion, and, will be able to make connections with others at an event to network after the event ends.
