RELEASE: Microsoft Viva Connections – generally available March 2022

imageToday, we are announcing that Viva Connections will be available to all customers as part of their existing Microsoft 365 and SharePoint license. Any employee in the organization that is licensed for SharePoint will be able to use Viva Connections at no additional costs. New customers can learn more about Microsoft 365 and SharePoint licensing options here.

Also, today we are announcing that the Teams desktop experience for Viva Connections is starting to rollout and will be generally available to all customers by the end of March. Keep any eye on the Microsoft 365 message center for details on how you can deploy Viva Connections when ready.

As hybrid work models become widely embraced, reimagining how we nurture employee development and training and how we keep employees connected to each other and to benefits and wellbeing opportunities becomes critical to success. Last month, we launched Microsoft Viva, our new employee experience platform built to empower people and teams to be their best from anywhere.

Powered by the full breadth and depth of Microsoft 365, Microsoft Viva is experienced through Microsoft Teams and other core Microsoft 365 apps to bring together communications, knowledge, learning, and insights into an integrated employee experience.

Microsoft Viva Connections, one of the four Viva modules, is your gateway to a modern employee experience. It is personalized and appears in the apps and devices your employees already use every day, such as Microsoft Teams. Viva Connections provides a curated, company-branded experience that brings together relevant news, conversations, and other resources. You can learn more about Viva Connections in the announcement blog or in the Microsoft Ignite session Introducing Microsoft Viva Connections.
