Users will be able to conduct video meetings without the need to use third-party services. For now, video calls can only be made between two users.
The growing popularity of tools for conducting online meetings has led to the fact that the creators of various services began to offer users their developments in this area. LinkedIn, one of the world's most popular communication platforms for professionals, is also active in this area.
Since 2019, LinkedIn users have been able to initiate video calls, but they still needed to use a third-party app such as Zoom to hold a video conference. Now the developers have presented their own solution for online communications. With a built-in video conferencing solution built with Azure Communication Services, two users can have one-on-one meetings.
For the convenience of users during a video call, they can access information from the profile of their interlocutor on LinkedIn, which will be useful when conducting business negotiations, interviews, etc. The presented tool is available to all users of the platform; you can launch it directly from the chat. At the same time, the new option is free. It is also emphasized that the option, if desired, to use a third-party service to conduct a video call, is still preserved.
