Last summer, LinkedIn Sales Navigator got a big refresh, making it a standalone experience with a separate login, letting salespeople get comprehensive information directly. For the first time, it got features like lead recommendation by account, news mentions, and account recommendation.

Shortly thereafter, it launched on iOS. Now, it's finally available for Android.

"Now available in Google Play, Sales Navigator Mobile for Android provides access to Sales Navigator’s most-used features, including access to prospects, contacts and account information wherever you are," LinkedIn said in an email. "All of the features customers have come to rely on with our iOS app are available in the new app. Sales professionals can now get real-time news and information about accounts and leads, InMail and TeamLink on Android. Current LinkedIn Sales Navigator users can download the Android app today."

Also new is integration with Microsoft Dynamics CRM.

"Sales Navigator now integrates with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, allowing sales reps to access information from Sales Navigator right in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM interface without having to toggle back and forth between solutions," the company said. "The integration opens new market opportunities for Microsoft customers to connect their social selling activities to their pipeline, forecasts and workflow to improve performance and productivity. CRM integrations with Sales Navigator save sales reps 30 minutes on average per day while increasing sales productivity by 17%, according to Accenture. After launching LinkedIn Sales Navigator for Salesforce last September, we’re extending our commitment to helping sales reps save time by integrating Sales Navigator with Microsoft Dynamics CRM."

The Android app requires version 4.0 are higher. More on the Dynamics integration here.
