Details:

We want to make you aware of upcoming changes as we prepare for the transition from Stream (classic) to Stream (on SharePoint).
1. Provisioning of Stream classic by default to stop for new customers

For new customers with requisite Stream license, if a user accessed Stream (classic) for the first time via URL or tile in Microsoft 365 app launcher, it provisioned classic Stream for them.
Coming soon, this is going to stop. Stream (classic) will no longer be provisioned by default for such customers.
2. Stream tile in Microsoft365 app launcher to go to the new Stream app on Office.com
Stream (Classic) is transitioning to Stream (on SharePoint). Until Stream (Classic) fully retires, you can decide which Stream experience is most appropriate for your users when they click on the Stream tile from the Microsoft 365 application launcher via a new setting that was added to the SharePoint admin center in July 2022. [MC381948]
This setting is the “Stream App launcher tile” and currently has a default option of “Automatically switch to Stream (on SharePoint) when recommended” which will send users to Stream (Classic) when they click the Stream tile.
Coming soon, we will automatically change the “Stream app launcher tile” setting’s default option to send users to Stream (on SharePoint) instead.
In addition, if your organization has never used Stream (Classic) in the past, we will no longer let you use that experience and instead you will use Stream (on SharePoint).
[When this will happen:]

Standard: Rollout will begin mid-October and complete by mid-November.
GCC: Rollout will begin mid-October and complete by mid-November.
