New Delhi: LinkedIn, a professional social network, is set to roll out a new AI feature to improve the networking experience on its platform. The latest addition to his AI capabilities is designed to streamline user interaction with their connections by automatically generating an icebreaker as the initial response, simplifying the process.
This AI-powered feature comes at a time when the platform is expected to see a large influx of users because of recent layoffs at top companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Snap, and others.
Notably, the latest addition will be exclusively available to LinkedIn Premium subscribers, allowing them to initiate conversations with individuals outside their network. It will use information from both the sender’s and recipient’s profiles to draft an initial message, and users can edit the message before sending it.
