Update: Stream (Classic) to be retired February 15, 2024

As we shared in November 2021, Stream (Classic) will be retired as customers transition to the new Stream platform built on SharePoint. Yesterday, we shared the update that Microsoft will retire Stream (Classic) on February 15, 2024, for all customers except GCC, and we will turn off upload functionality in August 2023.


The successor service, Stream (on SharePoint), entered general availability in October 2022, and has been widely popular since we first announced it more than two years ago. With video now in the flow of work, users can more easily create and discover video content for collaboration and knowledge transfer. In 2022, billions of videos were uploaded to the service, and its use continues to grow rapidly because of how simple it is to create, discover, and view video across Microsoft 365.


To support your customers’ move to Stream (on SharePoint), we have created a migration tool that allows them to transfer all their Stream (Classic) videos to Stream (on SharePoint). The tool also brings over metadata, links, and permissions associated with Stream (Classic) audio and video content. The migration tool is now in public preview, and we expect it to become generally available on February 15, 2023 for all Stream customers, except GCC.


To learn more about Stream (on SharePoint) and the Stream (Classic) retirement timeline, and to find resources to help your customers through the migration process and more, check out the Microsoft Stream blog post in the Microsoft Tech Community.
