It’s pretty much similar to Lync for Windows 10, only that it lacks the traditional look and feel of an instant messenger.

Besides Windows 10 the Windows Phone, Android, and iOS versions of the Yammer app have also received updates.

Yammer is the enterprise social network for your company that connects you to the people, projects and information you need to get work done.

Discover new company conversations, share ideas with your team, ask questions and respond to updates with this easy-to-use app. Yammer Feed for Windows 8 is designed for the new Windows 8 Experience and is optimized for touch devices.

However, this update doesn’t target the official Yammer app in the Windows Store, but the desktop Windows 10 edition, so it’s not aimed at those using Yammer on Windows 10, or Windows 10, touch devices.

The updated version of Yammer for desktop Windows 10 users brings access to Group Feeds, new notifications, and live tile functionality, as well as the new  Snap option, that lets you snap the Yammer app to the side of the screen.

Now, multitasking is really possible! Follow the links below to download whichever version of Yammer suits you better, the desktop or the touch one.
