Clicking the button revealed above will immediately filter your messages into two tabs.

Focused Inbox uses AI to recognize crucial messages, which it filters into the ‘Focused’ tab while the remainder are sent to the ‘Other’ tab.

Considering there’s an AI aspect involved it might take time for LinkedIn to discover your inbox choices.

You’ll have the option to move messages between tabs, or revert back to the traditional messaging experience if you don’t take pleasure in the Focused Inbox.

LinkedIn is making this change in uptick in direct messaging, which the company says is up 20% compared to in 2015.

In an e-mail, a LinkedIn representative states:

“This function is the latest in a series of improvements we’ve made to help members have more productive discussions and connect to chances through LinkedIn messaging. With conversations up nearly 20 percent considering that last year, we’re seeing more experts on LinkedIn are turning to messaging to link and engage with each other.”

LinkedIn’s Focused Inbox is now offered worldwide to all users.
