New conversation experience for Yammer MobileSeptember 9, 2019
Yammer mobile iOS and Android apps keep you connected from anywhere – driving employee engagement and participation across the entire company. Earlier this year, we announced a preview of upcoming changes to the mobile experience, and now, Yammer’s superpowers are getting even stronger. Here's a look at how we’re building beautiful new mobile experiences to help you connect, discover, and share in a way that's easy on the thumbs and the eyes.
New Conversation Styling
A new card-based design sharpens content in the feed and helps you focus on the discussions that matter most to you. This is combined with a refreshed icon set, additional fonts and typography, new color palettes, and smoothed out spacing & indentations that create a delightful interface and encourages effortless scanning and comprehension.
We’ve also rebuilt the threading architecture to highlight interesting and relevant conversations and moved some additional message details to keep the focus on the main card. You can now find these message details, such as poster name, details, group, & list of participants, under the Action-sheet for iOS and Bottom-sheet for Android apps.
Replies that Pop
A new bubble layout organizes replies for mobile allowing the user to read more as desired. Similarly, we’ve added a “Read more” option in the feed to see additional conversations and expand threads.
Immersive look at images & files
The new grid view for images and documents makes it easy to preview and engage with multiple images and/or files while scrolling.
Link Previews captures image and text previews from almost any website. Additionally, links are now clickable directly from the feed cards so that you can get to the content you want to access faster.
Videos in feed can now be played on the go with new inline video playback. Stream videos can also be played inline on iOS.
Many of these changes have already rolled out and some more are rolling out this week. Update your app to the latest versions to get these updates (Latest app versions: 7.41.0 for iOS and 5.6.12 for Android) Please share your feedback and questions in the comments below and keep an eye on this blog for many more mobile updates!
