Today, we are excited to announce our latest updates to Yammer’s mobile apps; our team has been hard at work adding new features, streamlining design, and in some cases even rebuilding the app from scratch. Read on for details on what’s new on every platform – Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS and Android. We hope you enjoy the updates!

iPhone & iPad

  • Updated both iPhone and iPad for iOS 7. Shiny.
  • Completely new iPad app. It’s more streamlined and the new design promotes easier tracking of unread group messages, so now you can browse through new messages in your Groups in addition to your Inbox.

Android

  • We’ve redesigned the Android experience to be more familiar to Android users.
  • Speak Korean, Japanese, German or Spanish? Well now Yammer does too! The app now detects your native language settings on the phone, and adjusts the interface accordingly. Note that this only reflects the interface, message content will remain in whichever language it was posted in.
