Microsoft Teams Stream Upgrade

Effective Q1 2021 – No More Recordings Can be Stored in Stream and existing videos need to be migrated by 2022.


Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Microsoft has recently announced that a new Modern Stream is rolling out and Classic Stream will block new uploads in Q1 2021.
  • My business is not prepared for Modern Stream that has many advantages over Classic Stream, but requires new ways of creating and managing meeting recordings.
  • We just implemented Teams for our business and our recordings have become a critical asset with change management still a struggle.
  • We are getting more and more concerned about securing our data, recordings, etc.
  • Where do my new recordings go and what do I need to do with my existing recordings and videos?
  • Our remote workforce is here to stay and the importance of a consistent and predictable platform has never been greater.
