Yammer for Windows vs. Yammer Notifier

Yammer for Windows is a standalone desktop app with all the functionality available through the Yammer web client. It’s the recommended app if you prefer a focused Yammer experience with the convenience of Windows operating system integrations like native notifications (Windows 8+), taskbar shortcuts, and improved login for networks SSO enabled networks.

If you prefer to use the web browser as your primary Yammer client but would like to get notifications for Yammer activity beyond your Inbox messages, the Yammer Notifier is still available for Windows 7 and above.
