Microsoft updates Yammer Android and iOS apps with Android Wear support and iOS Handoff

Microsoft has updated Yammer for both Android and iOS apps.  The Android apps with Android Wear support and the iOS app with Handoff. Both apps have been updated for easier collaboration and a more streamlined experience.

The notification experience has improved on the host device as well. Notifications now roll up by thread and are accompanied by a flashing LED to let you know that they have arrived. Users can read and “like” team messages on your smartwatch and reply with voice commands.

Yammer for Android – Android Wear support
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.

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.

Better mobile collaboration

  • Interactive notifications: Engage with your team even faster by ’liking’ posts directly from the redesigned Yammer notifications on your iOS or Android devices.

Both updates are now available in their respective stores –  Android and iOS.
