Following up on the previous update, if a workload (such as Planner) is enabled for Outlook by default, we don’t plan on hiding those groups from the GAL. The only other scenario currently under consideration where we would hide groups by default is “Secret Groups”. “Secret Groups” would be hidden from everywhere unless you are a member. “Secret groups” is on the Microsoft 365 Groups backlog, but there is no delivery date available at this time.

I completely agree with @Vilius.
We are a medium sized university and we have lots of groups created by students that have no value in the GAL.
All Office 365 Groups created should hidden by default in GAL and only be shown if published by an admin. Also it would be great to have O365 Groups in separate address list in the GAL.

Thank you for the responses to the call for beta testers. We will notify those who have been accepted.
We expect this feature to be available to all by the end of August.
We know that there is no good way of managing external users in the Admin Portal today and we are thinking about ways to solve this.
