Jared Spataro is the General Manager of Enterprise Social at Microsoft.

One of our key themes at the SharePoint Conference in March was Work Like a Network. Yammer is at the heart of this new way of getting things done, and ever since the acquisition we’ve been focused on weaving social capabilities deeply into Office 365.

In November we announced the addition of Yammer Enterprise to all Office 365 Enterprise plans. And today—to further support our vision—I’m pleased to announce that Yammer Enterprise has been added to all Office 365 Midsize Business andOffice 365 Education plans.

As part of this update, all existing Office 365 Midsize Business and Office 365 Education plan customers will receive licenses for Yammer Enterprise. See Yammer Plans & Pricing for additional information. In addition, Midsize Business and Education customers are no longer required to purchase Yammer Enterprise licenses for external users within their external networks. This also applies to Enterprise customers, as we announced last November. This simple licensing change significantly reduces the friction in cross-organization collaboration and will enable your users to work with customers, partners, and parents and students without having to worry about additional costs.

We’re excited about what Yammer can do for these organizations. Midsized companies are always looking for ways to increase revenue, and schools are under increasing pressure to do more with less. Yammer and Office 365 can help your business or school work like a network and achieve your goals.

  1. Well done Microsoft. This is great news for Adactit’s and Microsoft’s many Midsize Business and Education customers running Office 365. When do you expect to roll this added benefit out to existing O365 Midsize and Education customers?

  2. JesperGronbaek, our A2 licencing was able to activate it yesterday.

  3. In our Office 365 Admin portal, I see Yammer for Academic but no check box to select it. Is this correct?

    Also, for MS Office 365 Plan A3 Faculty, I don’t see a Yammer option at all.

    Just curious on what we have to do to Activate Yammer.

    Also, if we previously setup Yammer through, is all the old data there preserved and able to be integrated in the Academic license?
