Thanks, everyone, for taking the time to share your suggestions. We’d like to clarity, as some commenters have pointed out, that we do have AAD support for iOs today. Android and WP versions are in the works. Please stay tuned and keep your feedback coming!
Thanks for posting. The updated Office 365 Admin portal (in preview) includes a Groups center for managing group properties – name, description, membership, privacy type, lifecycle, etc. Reports on usage will also be released in the Office 365 reports center this summer. What isn’t addressed in the preview portal?
“Secret groups” is still on the Microsoft 365 Groups backlog, but there is no delivery date available at this time.
Thanks for the feedback. We’re addressing this feedback by promoting the ability to manage group membership into Active Directory. In the near future, an admin can identify a security group that includes the users allowed to create Office 365 Groups form all endpoints. Then you can manage the membership in that security group as any other security group in your organization.
Note that the initial configuration to identify the group will be done in powershell.
We’re working on this feature, and we hope to release later this spring. In our implementation, members of groups with hidden membership will not be visible to non-members; i.e. a non-member browsing these groups in the GAL will see no members in the group.

Yes we have exactly the same problem, groups would be great for teacher-student collaboration but they can't add students. I'm not sure if Imram is understanding the issue correctly. We are trying to add users who are hidden from address book (in our case through ABP routing rules) to groups.
