Since we first announced users could save Teams meetings recordings in Microsoft 365, we’ve clocked immense progress - with most users now saving their Teams meetings recordings by default on OneDrive and SharePoint than on Classic Stream. With this switch, users are enjoying many new benefits from meeting recordings being better integrated with Microsoft 365, including: easy share controls and external sharing capabilities, improved video management, advanced compliance and governance, and much more.
In line with the vision for Stream (built on SharePoint), and to bring these increased benefits to all our users, all new Teams meeting recordings will soon be saved to OneDrive and SharePoint – with rollout beginning incrementally from August 16, 2021.
