Quick reference:
Settings -> App store

Overview

The Yammer tile shows you an overview of Yammer feed from the account you are logged in with. You can use the dropdown menu at the top of the live tile to switch between the tabs. Furthermore, you can view detailed feed information and can comment on posts. Clicking on the Yammer hyperlink will take you to the Yammer site.

How to retrieve the group's feed ID

In the classic version of Yammer, we used to be able to retrieve the feed-ID from the URL. However, in the modern version this is no longer the case, because the URL format has changed:

https://web.yammer.com/main/groups/eyJfdHlwZSI6Ikdyb3VwIiwiaWQiOiIxNDU3Mjk5NDU2MSJ9/all

In order to retrieve the feed-ID, you can use Base64 decode. For further instructions, click here

It is possible to switch between these versions within Yammer. However, this option may be hidden and is dependent on the settings within your organization. You must then allow users to still return to classic Yammer and switch back to the new Yammer at any time.
