New Year, new experiences rolling out for Yammer
Published Jan 11 2021 11:25 AM 7,708 Views

Happy 2021! The Yammer team has been busy over the past several weeks and we wanted to take a moment to share some updates on previously announced features and experiences that are in the process of rolling out.

Share to Yammer from SharePoint
Soon, you’ll be able to send SharePoint pages directly to Yammer communities. This new capability makes it easy to start Yammer posts, questions, polls, and praises right from SharePoint pages. The new Send to dialog box includes the full fidelity Yammer publishing experiences with the ability to style questions, praise, and polls as well as add rich text and images.

New Yammer Embed
Bring the new Yammer styling and functionality to any webpage using the new Embed. If you are using the classic embed experience, no action is needed. Learn more.



New Yammer tab for Microsoft Teams
Get the modern styling and features of the new Yammer in your Yammer tab within Microsoft Teams. Rolling out now!



Immersive Virtual Event Styling
New Yammer virtual event improvements are here to optimize your viewing experience! These changes include:

  • a side-by-side viewer so that you can engage in the conversation while keeping the video player front and center.
  • the ability to collapse pinned conversations to focus on new conversations
  • a new feed that showcases conversation threads



Hashtags and Topics
We shared the future of hashtags and topics in this blog. Now, the visual updates have been made to topics and clicking a hashtag now opens a page of community search results on that tag. Another change, that allows users to post a hashtag without automatically adding a topic is now underway and should be widely available by mid-January. Other changes noted in the blog are coming soon.


Continuing Improvements
We’ve also tightened up whitespace and padding, and brought additional administrative features and navigation to the mobile experiences. In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be rolling out additional insights for conversations and events, tightening the integration between Yammer, Microsoft Teams, and SharePoint, and shipping new features relating to knowledge, corporate communications and more– so keep an eye on our blog and Twitter!
