Why is it not possible from Sharepoint Home and from Azure to choose Yammer as the conversational mode in a Connected Group - instead of Outlook? This should be the free choice both for companies and for site admins.

Absolutely! We agree this should be a choice from SharePoint and the O365 Admin Portal. This is on our roadmap.

Any progress or more concrete plans on this feature, @Adrienne Trudeau?

agreed :hundred_points:

Also the ability to create a Yammer connected group from Outlook too? =)

Groups will have either Outlook or Yammer, but not both. This is to reduce confusion around which communications modality to use for a given group.

But what is the status of this wanted feature, @Adrienne Trudeau? That you can make your choice (Outlook or Yammer) from SharePoint and/or the O365 Admin Portal?

This is still on our list and a top priority with the SharePoint team as well. No committed dates yet, but we definitely hear the excitement for this feature.

But groups are formed by individuals who have preferences. Some will keep using Outlook, others jump to Yammer and others will choose Teams...
