The video-chat app LinkedIn is in talks to partner with Intercom to create an Interchangable Intercom app for the new iPhone and iPads, the company announced on Tuesday.
The new app will offer users a new way to communicate with friends and family and connect to other businesses, and the new app would be able to sync data between different devices, LinkedIn CEO Ed Wilson said.
“We have built an amazing app for LinkedIn that we’re excited to bring to everyone,” he said in a statement.
“The app is a collaboration between LinkedIn, Interchangelabs, and our amazing team at InterchAngelabs.”
The new InterchANGable app would also offer access to Interchanger, LinkedIn’s social media sharing service, which was launched in March 2016.
It will include “all the features and benefits of Interchangers, including real-time access to shared and private conversations, plus access to our tools, including photo galleries and shared lists, and updates on trending topics and stories from across the world,” Wilson added.
In a blog post, Wilson said that LinkedIn would also be providing users with an integrated search and discovery tool, which will allow users to discover content that matches their interests.
The app will launch in the coming months, Wilson added, with the goal of reaching 100 million users by the end of 2020.
The news comes as LinkedIn has also announced that it will add a new feature to the LinkedIn homepage that will allow people to share videos and photos with each other, a move that could open up opportunities for video-based interactions.
LinkedIn announced earlier this month that it was looking to expand the number of people that could join its workforce, and Wilson said the company was also looking to make it easier for people to get new jobs.
