Tuesday Tip: Stay on Top of Trending News With the LinkedIn Widget

December 19, 2017

Keeping tabs on industry news and trending stories can be done while waiting in line for lunch or during your commute thanks to the LinkedIn widget on your smartphone.

The first step is to make sure you have the LinkedIn mobile app on your phone.

On iOS:

  • Swipe right to the Home screen and tap on “Edit” to add a new widget

  • Search for LinkedIn Now and you’re all set! You’ll now see the latest headlines to read more and stay ahead on trending news.

On Android:

  • Go to the screen of apps where you’d like to add the widget, tap and hold anywhere to find LinkedIn and you’re ready to go.

  • Move the widget to your desired location on the screen and resize it to your liking. We recommend full width and at least two lines tall so you can see multiple news stories at once.

  • In addition to staying on top of news, you can also use the Android widget to search for people, companies, topics and more.
