Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

New Yammer features rolling out in May and June

It's finally here, the new Yammer look is rolling out in May. This is a face-lift I know many of my customers and partners have been waiting for, and the preview is about to hit your tenants soon. The preview feature will not be available by default, but will require the admin to set a policy. 
Once the feature his your tenant, admins will have a new tab in the network configurations where the following options will appear:
  • Staying on the Classic Yammer
  • Enabling Preview as opt-in
  • Enabling Preview as default setting
Preview opt-in is my favorite choice, as this will allow users to control their own experience.
