Microsoft Teams on Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms is currently receiving and important update. The attest version of the work collaboration tool introduces Yammer support to Teams on Mobile for the first time.

Yammer is a business social network that gives organizations the ability to connect individuals within a company. Microsoft acquired the company in 2012 for $1.2 billion.

We are surprised Yammer support for Microsoft Teams on mobile is only being added now. The collaborative nature of the tool makes it a dead cert feature. Added to that, Microsoft brought Yammer to Office 365 Groups way back in early 2017.
