Microsoft Stream: Stream Web App

Stream, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC398248 · Published Jul 7, 2022

Message Summary

We will be rolling out the Stream web app. The web app improves how you view and publish video and audio files that are stored in or uploaded to Teams, Yammer, OneDrive, and SharePoint. The app and player experience works seamlessly with and brings key features of the Stream (classic) player to SharePoint playing experience.

To use the app, simply open an audio or video file from its location in SharePoint, OneDrive, or from a share link. Opening the file will open the Stream web app where you can easily view the video (or listen to the audio file) prepare your video for publishing with a title and description, set a custom thumbnail, add chapters, generate a transcript, share videos, and even share your video at a specific time code.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93294

When this will happen:

GA: We will begin rolling out this feature in early August and expect to complete rollout by late September. 

Government Clouds: This will begin rollout to Government Community Clouds in early October and expect to complete rollout by early November. 

How this will affect your organization:

This feature will provide an enriched playback experience for videos stored in SharePoint or OneDrive.

Note: Some users may see this feature before other users within your organization.

What you need to do to prepare:

Admins do not need to take any action. If you’re organization is storing videos in Stream (classic) there will be no change to how you view those videos or publish changes to them. Videos stored in Stream (classic) will continue to open and play in the Stream (classic) player.

Most organizations currently store Teams Meeting recording in OneDrive and SharePoint, and these, along with any other videos stored in OneDrive or SharePoint will automatically be played by the Stream web app.
