Today it was confirmed after a brief set of rumors online that Linkedin was, in fact, releasing a video app for some of their members on mobile.
This is different than the Linkedin Record app that had a brief life about a year ago, that was designed for their Influencers.
This morning an update on twitter exposed that an engineer had told someone that the new feature was imminent.

When I asked some contacts at Linkedin it was evetually addressed by a Linkedin Product Manager that was the lead on the earlier product for Influencers.
Who has it?
It sounds like this feature is only available to a small number of members for now but we are already begining to see it out in the wild.
LinkedIn native Video spotted.

I’m not cool enough yet to have it but one I get it, be sure that I will be using it. I’ve been pumped up about them adding this feature since I heard about the initial Record app they were developing.
Video stories on Linkedin could be an amazing way for professionals to tell stories on the platform.
I got access and couldn’t wait to put out my first test of the feature.
