Starting today, the Yammer Communities app for Teams is now Viva Engage, the newest app for Microsoft Viva, designed to connect people, find and share knowledge, express yourself, and find belonging at work.
Viva Engage gives leaders new tools to shape culture and align their workforce through new communication and engagement opportunities. For employees, it provides new ways to build a sense of community, strengthen relationships with coworkers, share their work and perspective, and find answers to their questions – all within Microsoft Teams desktop, web, and mobile. Viva Engage will be coming to Outlook soon. Viva Engage is available at no additional cost to most Microsoft 365 customers: It can be used by anyone enabled to use Yammer.

Yammer is a key part of Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Viva and this change only impacts the Communities app for Teams & Outlook. Current users of the Communities app will be able to use Viva Engage with no additional licensing.
