This is an important announcement for customers who use Yammer live events. Yammer live events have historically used Stream live events for video processing. Microsoft is retiring Stream live events on September 15, 2023. Teams live events is the successor service that will allow you to create, host and produce live events within Yammer with the same functionality that you get with Stream.
While you will still be able to use the Stream live events option in Yammer until September 15, we’re rolling out two new ways in which Yammer live events can be produced:

Microsoft Teams QuickStart: Use the Microsoft Teams desktop client to produce your event, generally used in producing simple events.
Microsoft Teams external app or device: Use this to produce large-scale events, such an executive town hall, where a single stream from a media mixer is broadcast to an audience.
Once the live event is completed, the video if recorded, is stored in the SharePoint library of the community where the event was produced.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82054.
[When this will happen:]
We will begin rolling out the new Live Events experience in late February 2023 and expect the rollout to complete by mid-March 2023.
