LinkedIn is sending its standalone Job Search app out to pasture next month.

"We've built a robust job seeking experience within the main LinkedIn app that we're excited for our members to take advantage of," a LinkedIn spokesperson said in an emailed. statement. "They'll have access to more insights and features than they did in the Job Search app that can help them better navigate their careers, as well as the ability to reach out to the 610M+ professionals on LinkedIn for help on their journey."

A pop-up message in the app announced the upcoming change. Most of Job Search will be available for free, but some features, like deeper jobs insights about applicants and companies, will continue to be premium features, according to LinkedIn.

"We know this is a change, but we'll help you get through it," the company said in the notice.

LinkedIn launched its Job Search app in 2014 to help people find employment. The Job Search app lets people create searches, get alerts about relevant jobs and then apply.

In February, LinkedIn launched a live video feature called LinkedIn Live to broadcast events, expert advice and news interviews.
