Live video is coming to LinkedIn.
The social networking service aimed primarily at professionals is launching LinkedIn Live this week for businesses and individuals to broadcast to one another, according to TechCrunch. Streams are expected to include events such as conferences and product announcements, as well as Q&As from influencers on the platform. Other real-time content could also include earnings calls, graduate events, and awards ceremonies.
The company said livestreams have been the most requested feature for the site. Viewers will be able to “like” videos during the stream, while interactive elements will include the ability to submit questions or offer ideas via a comments section, similar to other social media platforms that offer livestreams.
The feature is launching in the U.S. in beta as an invitation-only offering, giving LinkedIn a chance to iron out any wrinkles before rolling it out to the entire community.
