To pave the way for O365 groups integration, Yammer will be changing its group types to align with O365 group concepts. These changes will include the following:
- Public Groups – the option for closed membership will no longer be available
- Private Groups (Listed) – only the admin of the Yammer group can grant approvals to new members
- Private Groups (Unlisted) – only the admin of the Yammer group can grant approvals to new members
