Clicking the button shown above will automatically filter your messages into 2 tabs.

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

Considering there’s an AI component included it may take time for LinkedIn to learn your inbox preferences.

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

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

In an email, a LinkedIn representative states:

“This feature is the current in a series of enhancements we have actually made to help members have more efficient conversations and link to chances through LinkedIn messaging. With discussions up nearly 20 percent because in 2015, 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 around the world to all users.
