Microsoft Stream is a new video service that uses the power of intelligent enterprise video to enable knowledge sharing, easier communication, and connectivity in a secure enterprise environment. Microsoft Stream is the successor to Office 365 Video; however, the two services will co-exist during the transition period. Both are built on Azure Media Services and use the same streaming video technology, allowing playback at scale across any device. Where Office 365 Video leveraged SharePoint Online for infrastructure and storage, Microsoft Stream is built from the ground up on top of Azure.
Launched on 20th June 2017 Microsoft Stream is now available to Office 365 K1, E1, E3 and E5 customers, including Education customer, and is also available as a standalone.
The transition from Office 365 video to Microsoft Stream will be a phased approach for customers. To learn more about this transition, see the Office 365 Video Transition Webpage.
