Just to add: group owners can also add external guests through your groups via our apps available for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
Billions of email users are now available to you to add into your groups to share emails, calendars, SharePoint document libraries, and more.
Instructions for adding guests in the Outlook Groups apps can be found here under the section, Add guests to a group using the Outlook Groups mobile app — group owners only at https://support.office.com/article/3b650f4a-5c9b-4f94-a1bb-0cca4b1091de

Thanks Stefano for reaching out! Can you check the portal settings whether the guest access is enabled for your organization & group? Steps to check that is in Admin documentation.
If settings are ON both at org & at group level. Can you please send me your tenant name through Private Message?

Thanks Pedro for reaching out!
1. Adding a new guest user through new O365 Admin portal is in our backlog. However we will be soon rolling out the feature to add existing guest users in directory to O365 groups via O365 portal.
2. I'm not sure I got your scenario, can you elaborate on this one? If the invited guest's email address already exists in the tenant directory(as guest user), then wouldn't need to sign-up for that.
3. Accessing group calendar is in the road-map, however the guest email notification should contain the relevant information. Can you tell me over Private message, what is the domain & client app your guest is using for their account?

Good morning Sahil,
thanks for quick reply, appreciated !
Well both settings seems to be ok at admin level:
app > office 365 groups
security and privacy > sharing
Also at sharepoint global settings everything seems ok (screenshot in ITA language):
i'm sending now a PM with our domain tenant.

Thanks Stefano! Glad to know Guest access is working on your tenant.
For the items conversations, Calendar, Mobile App & Planner all of these items are in road-map.
But I would love to hear your use-case & scenarios that you have with guests so that we can incorporate in our planning. Lets sync-up offline to take this discussion ahead.

Are guests allowed to sync group files via ODFB, or only view them online?

Thank you for the answer, i have been reading through the office groups documentation, and can't find anything regarding this - and when i try to sync files as a guest the folder turns up empty.
