LinkedIn Rolls Out Enhanced Smart Replies For LinkedIn Messaging

Today, LinkedIn rolls out enhanced smart replies for LinkedIn messaging, a brand new natural language processing recommendation engine to help members save time and respond to messages with greater ease.

Using a machine learning framework developed within LinkedIn, smart replies suggests personalized, contextual messages, enabling members to have a more productive dialogue with their connections.

How does it work? If you message a connection to see if they’d like to get coffee next week, you’ll see suggestions based on the conversation’s context to provide more relevant replies such as “Yes I do” and “What time?” Members are also able to message from any page on LinkedIn, no longer requiring you to leave a profile or company page to start a conversation.

Smart replies are rolling out globally in English first with other languages to come and the messaging is accessible on the LinkedIn mobile app and on desktop.

Members can enable or disable smart replies by going to their settings.

To learn more about the new smart replies, please visit LinkedIn’s blog post and video. For more information on the technical work that goes into generating smart replies, check out this post on the LinkedIn Engineering Blog.
