LinkedIn’s user interface was never the greatest work of art on Android, but the company hopes to change all of that today with a great, new upgrade in the Google Play Store. Along for the ride is a completely revamped user interface that uses Holo elements that have been prominent in Android since Ice Cream Sandwich. Things are much cleaner and simpler to navigate, and the app looks like it actually belongs on the platform.

More than just the look and feel, the new LinkedIn puts more emphasis on the social and blogging aspects of the platform, further showing the new direction LinkedIn wants to take the company in order to appeal to more people. The app also has 15 different languages, including Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia, English, German, Spanish, French, Korean, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Swedish, Chinese (Traditional, Simplified), Turkish, Dutch and Norwegian.

If you’ve been waiting on this upgrade then you should make no delay in finding it in the Google Play Store. After all, it’s free and it’ll only consume a few megabytes — a small price to pay to keep up with your professional network on the go. Give it a shot.
