News platform to completely replace 'LinkedIn Today'
Pulse News is receiving complete integration with LinkedIn with its latest update. Building from LinkedIn's purchase of the news app back in April, Pulse will now sync and offer better sharing and content options when signing in with your LinkedIn account. While you're still able to sign in with your email, if you choose to go the LinkedIn route you'll now be able to make comments and like stories and have them sync with your LinkedIn experience on the web.
That ties in with the fact that Pulse will now replace LinkedIn Today as the main source of social news on the platform for both mobile and the web. If you follow channels on you your LinkedIn page on the web, those sources will now be pulled right into Pulse as well. You'll still have access to the other Pulse content you know and love, and you'll also receive personalized content recommendations for more sources to follow.
There's also a general visual refresh to the app here, puling together all of the new features in a more attractive package. The app has always looked good, but there's just a little more polish now and Pulse says that under-the-hood changes like faster searching and autocomplete are now included.
