Today’s post was written by Carlos Bohórquez Marín, product marketing manager for the Yammer team.
In recent years, we’ve all experienced the unprecedented migration of life and work to mobile devices. We’ve also seen fast-moving, innovative teams increasingly harness the immense power of ‘open collaboration’ to achieve more with Yammer–especially on the go.
That’s why we’ve been focused on delivering weekly enhancements to the Yammer mobile apps for iOS and Android, including profile and group viewing/editing, improved search and notifications, integrated message translation to 25 languages, performance and reliability gains and much more.
Today, we’re pleased to introduce a new round of innovations for Yammer on iOS and Android, to make mobile team collaboration better than ever.

Yammer now works across your Apple devices like never before. Start collaborating with Yammer on your Mac and–with one swipe–seamlessly continue on your iPhone or iPad. Instantly transition from your iOS device back to your Mac with one click and keep going right where you left off on Yammer.

We’re also expanding anytime, anywhere productivity with Yammer on Android Wear devices. Glance at your wrist to quickly read and ‘like’ team messages and even reply using voice commands–directly on your smartwatch. It’s never been easier to stay connected with your team, on the go.
To get started, just install Yammer on your Android phone and Yammer is seamlessly extended to your Android Wear device.**

Even more Yammer improvements for better mobile collaboration
We’ve implemented additional experiences in Yammer on iOS and Android to make you more productive, with better on-the-go collaboration with Yammer.
- Interactive notifications—Engage with your team even faster by ’liking’ posts directly from the redesigned Yammer notifications on your iOS or Android devices. We’ve added many usability enhancements too–notifications roll up by threads, the Yammer icon appears on all notifications, and we even flash the LED on your Android phone to announce incoming notifications. It’s the little things that matter.
- Share into Yammer—Multiply your impact wherever you are by sharing links, photos and more into a Yammer group directly from Safari, Chrome and other apps.
Use interactive notifications to give feedback on-the-go with Yammer.
Open collaboration for a mobile-first world
The pace of innovation on our Yammer mobile apps will only accelerate. We want to craft intuitive, powerful mobile experiences that enable teams to collaborate openly, individuals to scale their impact and organizations to bring down silos so everyone can do more and achieve more.
Of course, we’ll continue to bring the best of Yammer to all your devices. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2015.
Start collaborating on the go with Yammer today–and bring your team along for the ride. Download our Yammer apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone now!
