We've seen a few posts recently on Stack Overflow from developers asking whether they should be using Microsoft Graph (graph.microsoft.com) vs Azure AD Graph (graph.windows.net).  So we thought we'd provide some guidance, as well as a bit of a roadmap to clarify things, for new and existing developers who require directory-based features. In general, we recommend the use of Microsoft Graph over Azure AD Graph, as Microsoft Graph is where we are investing for Microsoft cloud services. Read more on the Office Dev Center Blog
