Where to manage office 365 groups from, on prem or from Office 365 admin portal?

Hello Experts. I have exchange 2013 on prem, with 1 AD, 1 domain, 1 exchange. We are thinking of moving to O365 for email. I know during synchronization, the on-prem distributiom groups will show up in O365, but will need to be upgraded to O365 groups. After i upgrade these distribution groups to O365 groups, where will i manage these groups from? From on prem exchange, or from the O365 admin portal? We will have hybrid migration with ADFS. I know during a hybrid migration, everything should me managed from on-prem, but am a bit confused for O365 groups. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

The dont "need" to be updated. DGs will work just fine with O365 and are still a viable solution. If you need the additional functionality O365 Groups offer, then by all means "upgrade" them. However, in this case you will have to manage them directly in O365.

Just use Distribution Groups the old fashioned way.  Here's what comes with the "upgrade" to these new Office 365 Groups:

That's like AT&T calling the $5 I have to pay when I call to correct my bill a "convenience fee".
