LinkedIn has introduced a new feature that will allow users to record a 10-second audio clip pronouncing your name in order to help other users pronounce it correctly

The professional networking platform has designed the 10-second audio clips to appear as an icon on the right-hand side of profile names.

You can only add the audio clips using Android and iOS although anyone can play it back on desktop and mobile. To add a recording, open the platform on your mobile phone and log into your profile, click on ‘view profile’, then ‘Edit’ and then ‘record name pronunciation.’

It is a simple feature, first offered on Facebook for many years, that could be crucial for a professional networking platform. The feature will help to minimize unprofessional and awkward mistakes that could happen when speaking to contacts for the first time.

“Everyone, including myself, makes mistakes when pronouncing other people’s names,” Joseph Akoni, a product manager at LinkedIn who helped develop the feature, told The Wall Street Journal. “I’ve encountered this personally with my Nigerian middle name — there’s a 99% chance someone won’t pronounce it correctly on the first try.”

The feature has been on beta for a couple of weeks now, but LinkedIn said that they would be rolling it out to its 690 million users this month.
