M365 Changelog: Rich Yammer link previews in Teams chats
MC258425 – Updated July 01, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
With this change, when inserting a link of a Yammer conversation in a public community from their canonical (home) network, users with the Yammer Communities app for Microsoft Teams installed will now get a rich preview directly in Teams.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82243
When this will happen:
This new functionality will be rolling out in early August (previously June). If you see that the Communities app version is greater than v.2.2.5, then the functionality has been enabled in your tenant.
How this will affect your organization:
Users with the Communities app installed will now see a rich preview of the Yammer link they paste into the chat window. If a preview is not desired, simply remove the preview.
Example of rich preview
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.
