LinkedIn's new 30 second video profile

Has anyone tried creating their video, replacing their profile picture? LinkedIn seems to have made a conscious effort to be more of "social media" recently. Personally, I've liked the changes. But this change, might be my favorite. So much of LinkedIn is focused on the job search, or finding candidates. Images and pictures don't really share anything about anyone. A video however, is very hard to fake and offers a snapshot of one's personality. Which at the day should help the recruitment / networking process.

I saw this on someone's profile right before I came here. I think this is a great idea.

Is this rolled out to everyone yet? I am only seeing a photo or frames option for my profile photo 🤷‍♂️

@fritzly I think you're right. I asked a buddy and he had trouble too. Not easily uncovered on the web either, but guess not...
