LinkedIn Video: Stand Out with Filters and Text

March 20, 2018

Every day we see great examples of LinkedIn members using video to connect with their work communities in new and creative ways – sharing projectsknowledgeideas and strategiesorganizing events and trying out new technologies.

Today we’re excited to introduce two new ways for you to enhance your videos:

  • Filters for sharing everyday work moments. With today’s launch, you can give your work buddy a “Work High Five,” swap ideas on passion projects with “Side Hustle” or share the latest with the “On the Air” filter. In the future, you’ll see more filters you can use in your professional life.

  • Text styles for adding context so your community knows what’s happening, even when the sound is off. We’re launching three styles - FifthAve, Geometric and Plain - with more to come.

  • tools

We first launched filters for events in October at the Grace Hopper Celebration event, and the videos we saw inspired us to continue building other filters to make it fun and simple for you to share with your communities. We also heard from you that you wanted more filters for everyday uses, so today’s launch brings those to the forefront with “Work High Five,” “Side Hustle,” and “On the Air.”

To check out these tools:

  1. Make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of the LinkedIn app for Android or iOS

  2. Tap the video icon in the share box

  3. Record or upload a video

  4. Add a filter and text by tapping the icons on the top right

  5. You can drag the elements where you want on the screen.

Our community has already started to use these tools in fun and useful ways. Here are two great examples:

We’re excited to see how you use these tools to express who you are and what you do. Stay tuned as we work on adding even more creative tools for video.
