you can do this in SharePoint today (i.e. put all members into Read Only permission bucket)
Why is it assumed that anyone that has access to a Group needs write access !! For governance, audit, or internal informational purposes a read/view only access ensures that those that that just need to read do not delete/edit/or generally mess things up by mistake.

We’re working on it. Stay tuned.
From the Ribbon, go to Browse groups, and find the group you’d like to view. From there, you can select Group calendar from the ribbon.
But this will not work if the Office 365 Group was created in Teams. By default Teams created Groups are hidden from Outlook.
I agree, "Outlook Mail and Calendar" is NOT Outlook, it is nothing like it. Office 365 Groups only work on the Android/IOS version, so do businesses need to move away from Windows 10 ?
Office 365 Groups works with Outlook Mobile app for IOS and Android but not Microsoft's own Windows 10 tablets (even those with screens less than 10.1") ??? How are Business Essentials customers supposed to use Groups (we are not all connected to the internet 24/7). Teams app is no good as it does not support email properly. So can we have the Android/IOS Outlook app for Windows 10 tablets please.
There is no Outlook Mobile app for the app owner's own operating system (Windows 10). The Win 10 mail app is useless for those who wish/need to use Office 365 Groups (i.e. the target audience) unless you have the full Outlook installed (which does not come with Business Essentials.
