Office 365 update: Yammer Web Part for SharePoint Online

As announced in September 2017, we’re releasing a new Yammer web part for SharePoint Online. We’ll begin rolling this feature out in the next few days.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID: 20537.

How does this affect me?
The new web part is natively mobile and will surface new or top conversations directly on SharePoint Online pages in a card-style format that fits well with the look and feel of SharePoint Online communication sites. The web part also allows users to start new Yammer conversations directly from SharePoint Online.

Current implementations of the existing web part showing Yammer feeds in your pages will not be changed or disrupted. You may choose to update by removing the old web part, then adding the new web part to the page and linking it to your existing Yammer group. There will be no disruption in your Yammer group’s content from changing the web part.

We’ll start gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers in late December, and the roll out will be completed in the next few months. This change does not apply to customers with Office 365 Government and Community Cloud (GCC) or Office 365 Germany subscriptions.
