Stream has been updated to Stream (on SharePoint). The older version, referred to as Stream (Classic) will be retired eventually. 

Stream is a video service that allows you to record, upload, and share video files just as you would any file in Microsoft 365. You can create a recording from Stream (on SharePoint) and it serves as an access point for all Stream and other recordings stored in any Microsoft 365 app, such as OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint.

With Stream (on SharePoint), users can:

  • Upload video files to SharePoint, Teams, or OneDrive just like any other file.
  • Find and get back to recent videos, ones shared with you from the Stream start page in Office.
  • Use screen capture feature to record your screen.
  • Generate a transcript and closed captions for the language spoken in a video in SharePoint, Teams, or OneDrive.
  • Manually add chapters, letting a viewer jump right to the part of the audio/video file they want.
  • Collaborate with comments, just like with any other Microsoft 365 document.
  • Add custom thumbnails, titles, and descriptions.
  • Share videos with others, including external partners or guests, just like you share any other file.
  • Feature videos in pages, sites, portals, and Microsoft Teams.
  • Get analytics to know how your viewers are watching.

Additionally, videos created from Teams or Stream (on SharePoint) are stored in apps based on where you created them. 

You can share videos in a number of ways: create a shareable link, download and post to MediaHub, or add directly into a Team or SharePoint site.
