Switcher Studio has a native integration with LinkedIn that makes it easy to stream to the platform, but before you can stream to LinkedIn you will need to connect your LinkedIn account to Switcher Studio. You can connect your LinkedIn account to Switcher Studio either directly through the Switcher iOS app or the Switcher Studio Dashboard. Some people prefer the Dashboard option because they can use a computer, and if they're already logged into LinkedIn, it makes the setup easier. Others prefer the app since it doesn't require a different device. The steps are very similar, and both options are outlined below.

Note: Individuals can stream to a personal LinkedIn account (ex. People page) or an organization's LinkedIn account (ex. Company page). A Company page can have multiple streaming Admins.
