Updated feature: Guests can now sign-up for an account in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business

Microsoft are updating the external sharing redemption flow for SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. You will see this in the next couple weeks.
Previously, guests who wanted to create an account during the redemption flow were required to enter ten or more fields of information, to create an account. This proved to be a huge barrier for guests who are trying to access a resource shared with them. These users will now see the lightweight sign-up flow which only requires a minimal amount of information.

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. External sharing will continue to work as expected, but guests will find the sign-up process easier to complete.

New feature: Office 365 Groups multi-domain support

Office 365 Groups multi-domain support is a new Office 365 feature. You’ll begin seeing this new feature starting today.

Larger organizations use separate email domains to reflect different parts of their businesses. Office 365 Groups that are created by users in one domain will share that domain (as opposed to using a common domain across the tenant). Administrators now also have control to create groups in a specific domain of their choosing.
