Office 365, Exchange, Can I convert a distribution group to a shared mailbox?

I have a distribution group mailbox that I want to convert into a shared mailbox. Is that possible?

Unfortunately, unlike a user mailbox, a distribution group cannot be changed directly into a shared mailbox. 

You will need to delete the existing distribution group mailbox and recreate the object as a shared mailbox.
