What are the requirements to enable this? i.e. E3, E5 license? Or is it a matter of turning this on in Admin console?

Requirements: Your network must have Office 365 groups. Only Office 365 connected Yammer groups are eligible to become dynamic groups. You must also have a license for Active Directory Premium to use dynamic membership rules with Office 365 groups. https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Dynamic-groups-in-Yammer-6d2a6ec7-1d65-46bb-b253-1bf441ec80...

Hi @Adrienne Trudeau, we're just starting to play around with dynamic groups and have a few questions. Will public dynamic groups still be visible to the rest of the network or does the membership make it private to those that aren't in the group? A lot of our business area groups are public so everyone in the organization and learn about what the business area is doing and we don't want to restrict this visibility and opportunity for collaboration. Thanks!

Privacy setting and membership are independent so you can have public or private dynamic groups. In public dynamic groups, non-members will be able to see and interact with the group content, but won't be able to join the group. The support documentation shows the group nav for members and non-members of a dynamic group
