Microsoft releases LinkedIn Windows 10 app (web wrapper)

Microsoft is planning to adjust the name of its Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in the United Kingdom and elsewhere to Autumn Creators Update.

According to ZDNet, PCs running on Intel's Atom Clover Trail processors are now unsupported by the Windows 10 Creators Update.

This is without a doubt, this could only cause more confusion among users, especially because in some parts of the world, like the southern hemisphere, the Redstone 3 update would see daylight during the spring. That's an effect of the new Windows as a Service model, which only allows for servicing major feature updates for 18 months after their release. Microsoft is no longer supporting these Atom processors when running Windows 10, which means that customers will no longer be able to new download products updates from Windows Update.

"With Windows 10 Action Centre, LinkedIn for Windows 10 delivers real-time professional updates, including new messages, insights on who's viewed your profile, trending news in your industry and other timely highlights on your professional network", Alvarez said. The app collection is now available for download from the Windows Store for users of Surface Dial.

Using the app also will provide a more fluid way to stay up to date compared with using LinkedIn on a browser, said Chris Pruett, a senior director of engineering who redesigned LinkedIn's desktop site that debuted in January and upgraded mobile app.

The mock photos prompted one creative social media user to put forth an effort of her own, albeit with altogether different "twins".

Users can configure which alerts they'd like to see from the Notifications tab inside the app, LinkedIn's blog post notes.

Microsoft purchased LinkedIn for $26.2B previous year when the site had about 400M users.

What is the message that Microsoft sends when Android and iOS get a custom LinkedIn application, and the company's own Windows 10 operating system a wrapper with some added features on top of it?
