Professional messaging platform LinkedIn, stepping further into the video arena, has introduced its new live streaming service, called LinkedIn Live.
Currently, in the beta testing phase, the new feature will allow various businesses and other users to conduct live events such as conferences, product launches, Q&A sessions, meetings, and more.
However, the feature is an invite-only one and for the users in the US as of now. Additionally, it is accessible to limited users only.
For LinkedIn Live, the Microsoft-owned platform has included several third-party live-streaming services’ developers such as Wirecast, Switcher Studio, Wowza Media Systems, Socialive and Brandlive, and Microsoft’s Azure Media Services as well.
For those who don’t know, LinkedIn, back in 2017, introduced its video features which led to a hike in the company’s revenue generation and traffic.
However, LinkedIn is quite late in the video streaming arena as other platforms such as Facebook and Twitter already have a live streaming feature.
There is no word on when the LinkedIn Live service will be made available to all and exit the beta test phase.
