Stream (Classic) retirement date extended to April 15, 2024
As mentioned in previous message center posts (MC516263, February ’23), Microsoft is retiring Stream (Classic). Some of the retirement dates for Stream (Classic) have been extended. The new retirement date is April 15, 2024. Certain parts of the service will retire sooner unless you take action, so make sure you review the retirement timeline, prepare your users for this change, and start migrating. The successor service Stream (on SharePoint) is currently available for all customers to begin using. Encourage your users to upload and manage videos in SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, and Viva Engage directly.
See the full retirement timeline for more details: Migration & retirement timeline.
How this will affect your organization:
You’ll still need to migrate videos out of Stream (Classic) and educate users on how to use Stream (on SharePoint), but you’ll have some extra time from the original timelines to do so.
