Microsoft Stream Web app: Downloading fixed in View mode

In Microsoft Stream (on SharePoint), users reported problems downloading video in View mode, despite having download permissions. We’ve fixed this problem and added a Download button in View mode of the Stream Web app for users with download permissions.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 124992 (rolled out July 2023) and the message MC398248 (Updated) Microsoft Stream: Stream Web App (July 2022).

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: Completed early February 2024.

Standard Release, GCC, GCC High, and DoD: We will begin rolling out this fix early February 2024 and expect to complete GCC High and DoD by early May 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

Users with View-only + download permissions will be able to download the video as expected in the Stream Web app.

What you need to do to prepare:

No action is needed to prepare for this change. You may want to notify your users about this change and update any relevant documentation as appropriate.
