LinkedIn Launches LinkedIn Live: LinkedIn partnered with a handful of third-party live-streaming services and developers to debut its own live video broadcast service called LinkedIn Live. Select LinkedIn members in the U.S. who were given access on an invitation-only basis can now broadcast real-time video to select groups or across the entire platform. (18:46)
LinkedIn may open the pilot program to more interested users “in the coming weeks,” but stated that it would like to evaluate the user experience based on the initial pilot program before rolling out LinkedIn Live more broadly.

VentureBeat reports that the new tool is scheduled to launch in late summer 2019 with several product enhancements expected to roll out in the coming months.
