Back in December last year, Microsoft released Yammer Now as a mobile messaging app for enterprise users. Its a lightweight tool for simple and quick messaging experience, for accessing other functionalists such as Inbox and Home Feed, you need to download the regular Yammer app. They have updated this iOS app today with Stickers support. So you can now express yourself through the medium of stickers to your co-workers.
Yammer Now means that you can always reach your team, even if you don’t have their phone numbers.
But we know that sometimes, the things you want to say can be difficult to get across with mere words. Sometimes you have a thought or a feeling that would be better expressed with a quick, easy-to-parse image (note the rise of the thumb in social messaging apps). And sometimes you need to convey meaning when the words alone could be ambiguous in sentiment.
Earlier this month I wrote a short history of communicating with images: emoticons, kaomoji, emoji… and stickers. And this week we’re proud to announce the addition of stickers to Yammer Now!
In researching how people use messaging apps, we’ve seen stickers entice people to use apps like Line and WeChat to communicate with their coworkers. But when using those apps, you still have to track your coworkers down. With Yammer Now, instead of having to add each coworker via their phone number you can simply open the app and start messaging away—now with a range of stickers to augment your conversations!
Download Yammer Now from iTunes.
