Microsoft 365 admin center, SharePoint, Stream


World tenant


Change type:

New feature, Admin impact



Customers who wish to migrate existing Stream (Classic) content to Stream (on SharePoint) can soon use the Stream migration tool in public preview. This tool will allow you to transfer audio and video files to Stream (on SharePoint) while also bringing over all critical metadata and permissions associated with your Stream (Classic) content. Additionally, the tool will ensure that links and embeds of Stream (Classic) content will be redirected to the same content on Stream (on SharePoint).
Stream (on SharePoint) improves upon and will eventually replace Stream (Classic). We expect to announce a retirement date for Stream (Classic) by or before early 2023, and we will keep the service running for a full year from the date of the retirement announcement.

[When this will happen:]
We expect to begin rolling out the public preview of the migration tool in early October and to complete the rollout by mid-October. The tool in public preview will be available to all customers worldwide. Once the public preview rolls out you will find the tool and reports inside your Stream admin center. We expect the migration tool to roll out to general availability by or before early 2023.
