In Microsoft

Video. It’s one of the top ways that we consume news and information. Thanks to Microsoft, your office can take advantage of the benefits that video has to offer. Through Microsoft Stream, users can share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, and more to help your firm collaborate. Viewers can even share comments and reference a specific time in the video to discuss with colleagues.

One of the biggest benefits to Microsoft Stream is the security. This secure video service allows you to set permissions for who can view and share video content. Azure Active Directory allows you to safely secure sensitive video information.

You can organize Microsoft Stream content by Channels and Groups, which makes content a breeze to find. Another benefit of Microsoft Stream is that it integrates with other Office 365 apps, including Teams, SharePoint, OneNote, and Yammer. So many integrations mean that discovering content couldn’t be easier.

What’s New

The newest update for Microsoft Stream includes many exciting new features to enhance user experience. These new features are:

  • Speaker timelines that use face detection to indicate every place that a person appears within a video so viewers can easily navigate to each speaker in the video
  • Speech-to-text and closed captions that capture spoken dialog in a readable form and make content more accessible for everyone
  • Transcript search and timecodes that let viewers quickly search and find moments that matter in a video
  • Additionally, a speech-to-text transcription that enables closed captions and a deep search will be applied to existing videos in Stream.

The good news is, that most current Microsoft 365 plans include Microsoft Stream (Office 365 Enterprise K, Office 365 Enterprise E1, Office 365 Enterprise E3, and Office 365 Enterprise E5).
