Recently, Microsoft professional networking subsidiary LinkedIn announced it’s added support for Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and BlueJeans. That means being able to use those mediums visa-via LinkedIn for video calls. This could potentially bring millions of new users to the platform, opting for convenience. Meanwhile, Google is placing new restrictions on Google Meet.
LinkedIn Announces Support for Zoom and Microsoft Teams as Google Meet Adds Restrictions
LinkedIn’s new support comes as part of a major overhaul of its website, the first since its last big redesign five years ago. So, beginning in October, LinkedIn users on mobile and desktop can chat face-to-face through LinkedIn message. After starting a new conversation, a menu will offer different choices, including Teams, Zoom, or BlueJeans. People can share a unique link to start an instant meeting or schedule a conference for later.
Over at Google Meet, things are about to change. Google is removing access to some of Meet’s features G Suite and G Suite for Education customers. These include the abilities to have meetings with as many as 250 participants, livestream broadcasts of up to 100,000 people, along with the option to save meeting recordings to Google Drive.
