[How does this affect me?]
With this functionality all new files posted in Office 365 connected Yammer groups will now be stored in the SharePoint account that is associated with the Office 365 Group. Keep in mind that existing files, files in unconnected groups, and files in private messages will not be impacted by this change and will continue to be stored in the legacy location.
This change will begin rolling out towards the end of December and is expected to be completed worldwide by end of March 2019.
