XING: Business network with renewed message function




Xing logo Since 25.10.2016 the business network XING starts with the distribution of a new function in the app for Android and iOS. The messaging area on the platform offers comprehensive new functionalities and is presented in completely new design. By the end of the year, all XING app users can take advantage of the enhanced version. The new version makes XING the instant messenger. According to XING, XING would like to take account of the new usage habits and to make accelerated and spontaneous communication possible.


As in the case of known instant messaging services, XING users can use a check mark to determine whether the recipient has already read the sent messages. The uncertainty as to whether news was taken at all and the necessity to send reminders is intended to put an end to this. XING members will be able to track the entire communication process with a contact at a glance. The representation of the entertainment area is no longer divided by messages with subject and the corresponding thread, but only by contacts.

XING does not want to shake up the instant messenger world so that others try, for example , the German Telekom with Immmr . It is emphasized that one simply wants to replace communication within one’s own network. Comprehensible: in a network the communication channel is lala, then the users migrate.
