We are retiring the existing Windows Mobile App on 08/31/2017, which means the app icon will remain on your phone but will no longer work. You can continue to use LinkedIn on your Windows phone by going to www.linkedin.com from your mobile web browser (Edge, Internet Explorer). From here you’ll be able to access the full range of LinkedIn features, including search and profile editing, which were not available on the app.
For easy access to LinkedIn mobile web, you can pin the website to your start screen on your mobile device and open it with a single tap. Instructions on how to do so below.
- Open the web browser on your Windows phone.
- Enter www.linkedin.com and navigate to the site.
- Tap the three-dot menu button at the top right.
- Select “Pin To Start”
Additionally, we will be launching a new LinkedIn Windows desktop app in a few weeks on the Microsoft Windows App store.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Using Edge as the 'engine' for LinkedIn isn't as fast as using a dedicated application, but it's not far off. Your comments welcome - is a UWP client needed?
