Microsoft acquired LinkedIn last year in 2016 and since then they were rumored to release a Windows 10 app and finally, today they did but unfortunately its a web wrapper!
LinkedIn team in the blog post says :
The LinkedIn app for Windows 10 provides a more engaging and fully integrated LinkedIn experience that is quickly accessible from your Start menu and taskbar. In the Action Center and Live Tile, the app delivers real-time notifications, including new messages, insights on who you’re meeting with next, trending news in your industry, and timely updates on your network.
This means that the app will support Live Tiles, Action Center Notifications and is capable of using Native Windows APIs . Possibly they are using the concept of PWA or Progressive Web Apps that makes building an app very simple .
This app is still rolling out in stages and will be available in the Windows Store by the End Of July . The new LinkedIn app will support 20 Languages including :
English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese (simplified), Arabic, Danish, Italian, Dutch, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Turkish, Swedish, Chinese (traditional), Czech, Indonesian, Thai, Malay, Romanian
