Microsoft will retire Stream (Classic) on April 15, 2024 and all videos on Stream (Classic) will be deleted after the retirement date. Stream (Classic) has already been auto disabled for end users, and admins can delay this change till the retirement date. Admins must migrate their tenant's Stream (Classic) data to Stream (on SharePoint) before the retirement date to prevent data loss.
Stream (Classic)'s successor service, Stream (on SharePoint), entered general availability in October 2022. We recommend that you:
begin using Stream (on SharePoint)
direct your users to upload videos to SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive, and Yammer
put a plan in place for migration.
[What you need to do to prepare:]
Migrating your content from Stream (Classic):
All your existing Stream (Classic) videos can be transferred to Stream (on SharePoint) to take advantage of Stream’s rich integration within Microsoft 365. To support your move to Stream (on SharePoint) we have created migration tool that allows you to transfer your videos to SharePoint while also bringing over metadata, links and permissions associated with your videos.
To begin using the migration tool please refer to our 3-part Migration guide here: Guide to migrate data from Stream (Classic) to Stream (on SharePoint) - Part 1
