Yammer App Updates
Whenever a new version of the Yammer app becomes available, you will be notified to update the app. Updates are automatically applied if you restart the app. You can check whether you have the latest version by using the app menu.
Distribution via Systems Management Software (MSI Installer for Windows)
If you want to distribute the app by using managed distribution software like Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), download the MSI package below.
In-product Invites (shown in Web client)
When Desktop becomes available, you will be notified using in-product messaging to download and install the app directly. To complete installation, you need permissions on your system to install new apps.
IT administrators: if your users get new software via managed distribution methods (such as SCCM), you may contact support for assistance with disabling the in-product prompt to download and install the app.
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 SSO enabled networks.
If you prefer to use the web browser as your primary Yammer client, but want to get notifications for Yammer activity beyond your Inbox messages, the Yammer Notifier is available for Windows 7 and above.
