The webmail and online chat products that Microsoft announced today will combine to create the company’s most powerful web-based communication product yet.
Microsoft’s Internet Mail will offer email, calendar and contacts features, including the ability to schedule and sync emails and calendars.
Microsoft is expected to launch Internet Mail as a standalone product next year.
Microsoft and LinkedIn will share their combined products with the public in a new version of LinkedIn, the online-only LinkedIn for Business, the company announced today.
LinkedIn’s new website is expected in mid-April, with the company promising more information about its product in a March 2016 blog post.
The LinkedIn for business platform is aimed at people looking to work with people in different parts of the world.
Microsoft announced the move to merge the company-owned webmail with the LinkedIn for businesses platform last year.
LinkedIn for customers, meanwhile, will get an all-new LinkedIn for Enterprise product later this year.
The merger will allow LinkedIn to offer the same user experience across all of its services, and will provide a unified platform for connecting users across multiple industries.
The companies also announced plans to create an “Internet of Things” category for their products, which includes cloud-based cloud-hosting tools.
Microsoft says it will offer Internet Mail in the Microsoft Web browser in addition to Windows 10.
LinkedIn also said it will begin rolling out the new LinkedIn for Office 365, a cloud-computing suite for Office and Excel.
Microsoft said it would begin making changes to the LinkedIn service this spring.
Microsoft, which was founded in 1991, has been building its enterprise-focused Internet-of-Things product for years, but it is still looking for a way to compete with Google’s cloud computing services.
In a blog post, LinkedIn said that the merger will make it easier for customers to create new LinkedIn accounts for new groups, and for users to easily migrate existing LinkedIn accounts to the new platform.
LinkedIn will also begin rolling its new Internet-based email service out to the enterprise, which the company says will make the service “easier to use” for its users.
The company says it plans to offer Internet Email as a free tier on all users of its existing and future versions of LinkedIn.
LinkedIn says it has over 500 million members and that over 2 million of them have migrated to the Enterprise version of the service.
The new LinkedIn product will be available for download in April and is expected by the end of this year, the two companies said.
