Switcher Studio has a native integration with LinkedIn that makes it easy to stream to the platform. Before you can stream to LinkedIn, you'll need to connect your LinkedIn account to Switcher Studio. This gives Switcher permission to broadcast to your LinkedIn account and is usually a one-time process to set up, and then an occasional requirement as the authorization expires.

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

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. Other people prefer the app, since it doesn't require a different device. The steps are very similar, and both options are outlined below.

Option 1: Connecting your LinkedIn account using the Switcher Studio Dashboard

  • Use the toggle to choose between connecting a Personal page or an Organization account.

  • Click the Connect Account button.

  • Enter your email and password for LinkedIn.

  • Click Sign in.

  • Click Allow.

  • You will receive a confirmation message when the account has been linked.

Option 2: Connecting your LinkedIn account using the Switcher Studio App

If you would rather link your account using the mobile app instead of the online Dashboard, the process is slightly different:

  • Navigate to the Outputs tab on your main switcher device.

  • Tap the + icon in the upper-right corner of the Outputs tab.

  • Tap the Connect button next to LinkedIn Live.

  • Tap the Connect Account button on the next page.

  • Use the toggle to choose between connecting a Personal page or an Organization account.

  • Tap the Connect Account button.

  • Enter your LinkedIn login credentials. 

  • Tap Sign in.

  • Tap Allow.

Note: If you are using Safari on an iPhone, the Safari app will share your social login information with the Switcher Studio app. That means that when you want to link Switcher Studio to your LinkedIn account, you will not need to enter a username and password to connect if you’re already logged into that website on Safari.
