I have a question around the Yammer UI / UX. in comparison with other Office 365 apps and services, such as Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, the Yammer UI feels dated. Is there any thinking about investing in Yammer to give it a more 'modern' look and feel?

Any suggestions on what you feel would help Yammer feel more "modern"? We recently released updates to group headers and we look forward to iterating on that in an effort to continue to make groups have a greater sense of identity.

Loving the updates I've seen lately. Wondering if you'll ever give organizations the flexibility to brand the network masthead. When we migrate to O365, we essentially lose our network identity (the Blue Line).

Although the new banner, which caught me by surprise, is a nice eye candy, I'd like to see a more streamlined UI like in Teams. I whipped up a quick prototype, see attached screenshot.

Hi Steve, I would take my cue from the SharePoint team. Having a 'clean and uncluttered look' would be my guide. Currently Yammer feels 'busy'. Leveraging other Office 365 services is well received but positioning Yammer within the core of Office 365 feels distant when compared with both the new kids, Teams,Delve and the work on more mature products such as SharePoint and Outlook Web Access. Thanks!
