Office 365 Groups

Ever since our company migrated to Office 365, we are noticing that Lync does not seem to recognize groups that created in Office 365. Since Microsoft does not offer telephony, we are still running an on-premise instance of Lync. Being that the synchronization with DirSync is 1 way (from Active Directory to Office 365) it makes sense that these groups are not appearing in AD. Is there any connector that can be setup to allow Lync the ability to read the members of these groups?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just to clarify, you are talking about the "Modern groups" here, right?

Yes, that is correct. The groups created within Office 365.

AADConnect includes the Groups writeback feature that will sync back groups object to on-prem as DLs. The feature is still in Preview however and it has some requirements for the local AD. You can refer to these article for more info:
