Microsoft Stream

Microsoft Stream is an Enterprise streaming video service available with Microsoft 365. Company staff can upload, share, and view video content created within the company. It also supports social features such as tagging and comments, which enable discussions around the video's content.

Microsoft Stream lets you upload recorded presentations and live events for later viewing. Meetings recorded using Microsoft Teams get uploaded to Stream automatically.
