Microsoft has announced that Office 365 Midsize Business and Education plans will now include Yammer Enterprise.

Ever since Microsoft’s acquisition of Yammer in 2012, Microsoft has been focusing on waving the social capabilities of Yammer deeply into Office 365. Back in November, Microsoft announced the addition of Yammer Enterprise to all Office 365 Enterprise Plans. Earlier in July, Microsoft announced that Yammer Enterprise has also been added to all Office 365 Midsize Business and Office 365 Education plans.

As a part of the recent update, all existing Office 365 Midsize Business and Office 365 Education plan customers will receive licenses for Yammer Enterprise. Midsize Business and Education customers are no longer required to purchase Yammer Enterprise licenses for external users within their external networks. This also applies to Enterprise customers, as was announced last November. This simple licensing change significantly reduces the friction in cross-organization collaboration and will enable your users to work with customers, partners, and parents and students without having to worry about additional costs.

Everyone at Microsoft and MessageOps is so excited about what Yammer can do for these organizations. Midsized companies are always looking for ways to increase revenue, and schools are under increasing pressure to do more with less. Yammer and Office 365 can help your business or school work like a network and achieve your goals.
