Clicking the button shown above will automatically filter your messages into 2 tabs.

Focused Inbox uses AI to identify essential messages, which it filters into the ‘Focused’ tab while the rest are sent out to the ‘Other’ tab.

Considering there’s an AI component included it might take time for LinkedIn to discover your inbox choices.

You’ll have the choice to move messages between tabs, or revert back to the traditional messaging experience if you don’t take pleasure in the Focused Inbox.

LinkedIn is making this change in uptick in direct messaging, which the business says is up 20% compared to last year.

In an e-mail, a LinkedIn representative states:

“This function is the latest in a series of improvements we have actually made to help members have more productive conversations and connect to opportunities through LinkedIn messaging. With discussions up almost 20 percent considering that last year, we’re seeing more specialists on LinkedIn are turning to messaging to connect and engage with each other.”

LinkedIn’s Focused Inbox is now available worldwide to all users.
