LinkedIn will finally let people natively upload videos to the business-centric social network through its mobile app. On Thursday, LinkedIn started testing the feature with a small number of users in the U.S. whose natively uploaded videos will play automatically with the sound off when they appear in people’s feeds. People can disable videos from playing automatically in their account settings. The company plans to roll out the video-sharing feature to all users worldwide “in the coming months,” according to a LinkedIn spokesperson.
This isn’t the first time LinkedIn has let people post videos to the service. Last year, the company rolled out a separate app for its most influential users to post short videos.
In bringing the video-sharing option to its main app, LinkedIn will add a video camera icon next to the normal camera icon in the app’s status update box. People can click the new icon to record a video using LinkedIn’s in-app camera or upload clips saved to their phone’s camera roll.
