M365 Changelog: SharePoint news in the Yammer feed

MC256472 – Over the next few weeks, Yammer users will see SharePoint News in their Yammer Home Feed along with Yammer content. This new post type will show on both web and mobile.

The order of priority for content in the Yammer Home Feed is:

  1. A featured conversation (if available).
  2. Content the user has subscribed to and content that’s recommended for them.
  3. Content that’s trending across the organization, determined by likes and replies.

As each content type is populated, there’s a 3 percent chance of seeing a SharePoint News post if there’s one available.

When this will happen

Microsoft expects to begin rolling this out in late May and expect the rollout to be complete by late June.

Note: This functionality is already available for users on the mobile Yammer app.

How will this affect your organization:

Users will now discover SharePoint News directly in their Yammer feed along with Yammer content.


What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
