Yammer service description
Engaging your people is more critical than ever. Yammer connects leaders, communicators, and employees to build communities, share knowledge, and engage everyone. Yammer helps you connect and engage across your organization, so you can discuss ideas, share updates, and network with others.

The channels used to communicate will depend on the impact.
|Change type||Office 365 Message center||Microsoft 365 Roadmap||Yammer Tech Community Blog, for example, Monthly Roundups||External community, Twitter|
|Changes requiring action (plan for change) - Changes that require admin action to keep the service running, updates that may have an impact on your organization's compliance||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|

With changes that affect a targeted set of users, we may notify those users directly. Changes that are non-critical and do not require action or awareness will not be communicated broadly (even though they may be observable by some users).
Yammer enterprise service communications policy
Yammer adheres to the Microsoft 365 Change Management policy, but does not use Targeted release to roll out some Microsoft 365 updates. Yammer users are subject to A/B feature testing or flighting. This allows Microsoft to test features for stability, performance, and experience improvement across many environments and devices. Users within the same network may have varying experiences due to testing. It is not possible for customers to opt out of A/B testing.
For licensing terms and conditions for products and services purchased through Microsoft Commercial Volume Licensing Programs, see the Product Terms site.
