Microsoft is making some changes in the integration of Yammer with SharePoint; as part of these changes, the Yammer App for SharePoint (2013 and Online) and the Yammer webpart for SharePoint 2010 will be discontinued on March 15th, 2016.


At this date, these applications will stop working completely. The Yammer Embed will be the only way to get Yammer integrated with SharePoint.
