LinkedIn is going to add Games to its Platform

Have you ever thought about adding a game to a professional website or application that helps you find your dream job?

Not exactly a dream job but still a decent job. There is one of the famous platforms used for finding the jobs in corporate world and tech industries, that allows you to upload your resume, post every single achievement of yours and send connection requests to any company’s top executives to get referrals and more – we are talking about LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is one of the most popular job-searching platforms that is used by millions of people across the world. The platform has made job search easier and is known for connecting recruiters with candidates seamlessly.

Now, we all know that searching for a job can get tiring and it involves hours and hours of scrolling, entering details, reaching out to people, etc. However, LinkedIn wants to add a fun element to the whole process.

As per a new report, the platform is pondering over the idea of infusing gaming with job-searching.

According to a report in TechCrunch, LinkedIn is planning to branch out into gaming. The report says that the company is developing puzzle games called “Queens”, “Inference”, and “Crossclimb”, which is along the lines of the immensely popular puzzle game Wordle that was acquired by The New York Times in 2022 and became a huge hit.

A LinkedIn spokesperson, while speaking to TechCrunch, confirmed the gaming initiative but didn’t specify a launch date. The spokesperson said that these puzzle games aim to add enjoyment to the platform, strengthen relationships, and stimulate conversations.

“We’re playing with adding puzzle-based games within the LinkedIn experience to unlock a bit of fun, deepen relationships, and hopefully spark the opportunity for conversations,” the spokesperson said in a message to TechCrunch. “Stay tuned for more!”

App researcher Nima Owji also talked about LinkedIn’s gaming initiative on X –

“LinkedIn is working on in-app games! There are going to be a few different games and companies will be ranked in the games based on the scores of their employees! Pretty cool and fun, in my opinion,” his tweet read.

LinkedIn’s owner Microsoft is a gaming behemoth and has a strong foothold in gaming. Its games business — which includes Xbox, Activision Blizzard and ZeniMax — brought in $7.1 billion in revenues last quarter, passing Windows revenues for the first time.

The date is not disclosed till now, so we can’t say when this feature will be added. But once this feature gets added to LinkedIn, it will be fun playing games while searching for jobs and recruiters. This feature might help LinkedIn get new users and it might bring some good changes in the job-searching process.
