Well spotted, any chance you could include a screenshot of the message if that's possible and does it have a link to anywhere?  The full desktop app hasn't been launched yet as far as I know but maybe it's imminent or starting to happen now!

I was able to get it installed quickly after hitting our networks this afternoon.  The link pops up in the lower right hand corner.  I'm in the selective First Release group for our organization, so not sure if that has anything to do with availability or not.

Attached is the prompt

 

here is the url https://yammerdesktopapp.blob.core.windows.net/binaries/dist/win32/ia32/Yammer-ia32-1.0.1.exe

 

Like Brian, im in first release for my tenant, but the tenant it's self isnt.

 

The install did seem to work fine... it doesn't seem to SSO very well, i had to enter my email address for it to trigger my ADFS passthrough.

Thanks for that!

 

It's great it's been released, now we just have to look out for the announcement with further details.

We have begun testing the Yammer Desktop app! Following up on our announcements earlier this year on the Tech Community, we're excited to get this initiative rolled out. We have already begun testing a small batch of users, but the testing will now be available to a broader audience. Selected users will be invited via in-product messaging and will be able to complete the installation process themselves if they have permission to install new software.

 

As always, feedback is most welcome so please respond with any feedback or questions you might have. Thanks!

Hi,

 

Looks like some of our users also noticed this pop up in yammer and surprisingly there are not FR users.

 

how can I disable this yammer desktop popup for my end users on tenant level?

 

once the app is released as General build we want to push this out using our centralized Distribution system.

It's an A/B test, meaning select (random) users will be picked and receive the message, per Dean's post above:

 

"Selected users will be invited via in-product messaging and will be able to complete the installation process themselves if they have permission to install new software."

 

I am not sure this is a good call, how many users will have rights to install software anyway and software deployment is usually centralised typically (and what about updates?).

Yammer does not use the First Release process, that team has its own testing program that is unique within the o365 suite of services.

Thanks

Just today, the announcement showed up in my admin center...

 

Office Admin center - Home

We've begun testing the new Yammer Desktop app with a small batch of users, but we'll now roll out the test to a broader audience. This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 15052.
How does this affect me?
Users who are selected will be notified via in-product messaging and will be able to complete the installation process on their own (if they have permissions to install new software) without admin support. The invited users will need to meet the following requirements to participate in this test: - Users must install the Yammer Desktop App - Users must have the following operating system: Windows 7 or later and/or Mac OS 10.9 or later We’ll communicate again when we open general availability for the Yammer Desktop App.

A quick update, the Yammer for Windows and Mac desktop app is being released for all users on the 18th September.  This is confirmed in accordingly in a Message center post

 

I'll be interested to see if there are any release notes published as the app gets updated in the future.
