Microsoft Rolls Out 'Stream' Video Platform for Businesses

20 June 2017, 09:54 | Jodi Jackson

Microsoft launches Stream, its video-sharing service for businesses

Microsoft launches Office dictation and enterprise video products

In addition, the service also gained integrations with Office 365 Groups, Microsoft Teams, Yammer, OneNote, and SharePoint.

The enterprise-friendly Microsoft Stream allows a team to create, manage, and share videos as either a standalone app or part of an Office 365 commercial subscription. For one, Microsoft Stream includes face detection for videos - and it will let viewers skip to a part of the video where a certain person is shown.

As of today, it's available as a standalone service and rolling out to Office 365 Enterprise customers in 181 markets and 44 languages.


Stream also offers IT management and security capabilities, including built-in encryption and authentication. A clickable timeline indicates every place they appear.

Linked timecodes-Timecodes are displayed within the comments section and are linked to the text transcripts or table of contents, so you can jump to a specific point in the video. Today, Microsoft has officially announced the worldwide general availability of Stream, highlighting some "new intelligent features which take enterprise video to new heights". Sood expects that the majority of, if not all, Office 365 Video users will be migrated to Stream by the end of this year. Intuitive security features that utilize existing organizational identity through Azure Active Directory and Office 365 Groups make security management simple... Admins can add custom guidelines or require employees to accept terms before they can upload video to the service.

Microsoft is making it easier for companies to share videos internally with their employees, starting with the launch of a service today. The service also includes speech-to-text detection that automatically transcribes videos uploaded to Stream and the transcriptions are a lot more accurate than what you see on YouTube's auto-generated captions.
