Microsoft Stream is the newest Windows 10 business app released by Microsoft. This tool allows companies to securely manage and share videos with their employees for better productivity.
Microsoft Stream is currently in the preview stage, but Office 365 Business users can already test out the app. A series of settings are available allowing users to control who has access to videos.
For example, a particular video can be shared with everybody, while confidential videos can be viewed only by the employees who have permission to access them.
Moreover, Microsoft Stream allows companies to apply a series of filters to their videos and organize them by a specific team or product.
Microsoft has a similar video-sharing tool for business, Office 365 Video, and is planning to merge it with Microsoft Stream in the near future.
Starting today, anyone with a business email address can sign up for the preview in seconds and begin uploading, sharing and tagging videos in their organization. By taking the “work” out of managing video storage and security, Microsoft Stream enables organizations and their employees to communicate and collaborate with video more easily.
Microsoft Stream offers the following features:
- Easily upload your videos: Simply drag and drop the videos you want to upload. You can upload them to your own channel or add them to a specific channel based on team, group, topic etc.
- Discover relevant content: You receive notifications concerning trending videos, and you can search videos by hashtag, most liked videos and other key search terms.
- Watch anywhere, on any device, anytime: There are no limitations regarding the devices used.
- Secure video management: Manage who views your video content by determining how widely to share it within your organization and to what channels. Secure application access is enabled by Azure Active Directory.
- Follow what matters: You can subscribe to the channels of your choice.
- Engage with content: Share videos via email, “Like” your favorite videos and embed them to webpages within your organization.
