Office 365 Update: Changes to admin controls for existing Yammer groups

Previously, we announced changes to Yammer group types which affected admin controls for new groups. Today, we are announcing that these admin control changes will now be applied to all existing groups. This change will be effective July 6, 2017.
How does this affect me?

The following areas will be affected with this change:
1. Public Group, moderated: This group will become a public group in which any Yammer user can join. If there is a need to restrict membership based on AAD criteria, creating a dynamic group may be an option.
2. Private Groups (Listed), unmoderated: This group will become private (listed) with moderated access, where only admins now can grant approvals to new members. Previously, there was an option to allow group members to approve new membership.
3. Private Groups (Unlisted), unmoderated: This group will become private (unlisted) with moderated access, where only admins now can grant approvals to new members. Previously, there was an option to allow group members to approve new membership.
