No Comments on Microsoft rolls out LinkedIn integrations in Outlook.com

The company today announced that LinkedIn integration within Outlook.com is

now going live, allowing email users to view insights, profile pictures,

work history and more from within their inbox.


														
							

With the new Outlook integration, customers can click on an email contact’s name right in their inbox then view a rich contact card that includes a link to their LinkedIn profile.

With a click, you can view a mini version of their profile right in this pop-up Office Profile Card, which includes highlights like mutual connections or shared work experiences – like if you both previously worked at the same company in the past, for example.

You can also opt to connect with the contact on LinkedIn.The premise that detailed profile information should be a part of the email experience isn’t unique to Microsoft’s Outlook.

Microsoft said last month that the integrations between Outlook and LinkedIn would roll out to Outlook.com on the web, as well as SharePoint and OneDrive for Business. It will also become available within Outlook for Windows, Outlook for iOS, and other Office products in the months ahead, the company said then.

The integration with Outlook.com begins starting now, and will reach all customers by the end of November.
