Today we are pleased to announce the eagerly anticipated update to Microsoft Stream which includes a rich set of IT admin capabilities for managing your company’s video content. Ever since we launched, we were aware that IT admins play a key role in an organization and this is our first step in realizing this capability.


These experiences are a direct result of the feedback you all have provided us as you use Microsoft Stream and that helped us guide our designs. In this release, we focus on the 4 core admin experiences:

Get Started

If you are a Stream Admin you can go to https://web.microsoftstream.com/admin and try out the core experiences.


If you are not a Stream Admin yet and you think you should be one, contact your Global Tenant Admin so they can make you one.

Let us know your thoughts / feedback.


Until next time!

It would be great to be able to have a global admin be able to manage Stream without having to have a license.   Our global admins are only used for administration and only have a license for Azure AD P1.  I'm not sure if this is possible today but it didn't appear to be the case.  To get around this, I signed up for the trial which gave me admin access.  I then assigned a couple of normal users as admins.  But when my trial is up, I won't be able to help them unless I purchase a license.  Is this correct?  Thank you.
