In 2012 Microsoft bought Yammer, the freemium enterprise social network that allows companies and organizations to basically use “Facebook for business”. There are apps for both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, but it’s the Windows Phone version that just got a neat update today. Let’s check it out.
If you fire up the Windows Phone Store you’ll be looking to update to version 1.4 for Yammer. With this latest update you get four things:
- Image attachments now appear in conversations and messages
- Navigate to shared conversations without leaving the app
- Upload multiple images at once
- Design improvements and bug fixes
We fired up Yammer after updating and quickly checked out the improvements for image attachments. Which is a feature we’re sure a lot of you have been hoping for. Uploading more than one image worked great the first time we tried it out. To be honest, this is really our first time trying out the app and service, so we can’t fully comment on design improvements or bug fixes. This is where you come in and sound off below in the comments with our thoughts on Yammer for Windows Phone and its latest update.
Yammer is free for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. Grab it here in the Store, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
