Reminder: Stream (Classic) retires on April 15, 2024, and all unmigrated videos will be deleted

Microsoft has announced that Stream (Classic) will be retired on April 15, 2024. This means that all unmigrated videos will be deleted, and admin must transfer their tenant’s Stream (Classic) data to Stream (on SharePoint) to avoid data loss. Stream (on SharePoint) offers various advanced capabilities such as recording and playing videos directly in many everyday work and school apps, analytics, and searchability. Microsoft has created a migration tool and a one-day migration guide to help admins transfer their videos to SharePoint. Admins must finish the migration process before the retirement date to avoid any loss of content. Stream (Classic) has already been auto disabled for end-users, and admins can postpone this change until the retirement date. It’s recommended that organizations begin using Stream (on SharePoint) and direct users to upload videos to SharePoint, Teams, OneDrive, and Yammer.

If your organization has existing Stream (Classic) videos, they can be transferred to Stream (on SharePoint) using the migration tool, which supports the transfer of metadata, links, and permissions associated with videos. Microsoft suggests utilizing the 1-day migration guide to skip tool complexities and complete migration quickly. Stream (on SharePoint) delivers the capabilities of Stream (Classic) to users while enabling them to record and play videos in many work and school apps such as teams, Office.com, Yammer, PowerPoint, and Viva.

It's important for organizations to be aware of these changes and take appropriate action to avoid data loss. The retirement date is approaching, so admins must create a plan for data migration to ensure a smooth transition to Stream (on SharePoint). This will allow users to continue to share videos with ease while taking advantage of the enhanced features provided by Stream (on SharePoint) that are unavailable in Stream (Classic).
