We wanted to provide anonymous access to view live streaming events via Microsoft Stream  over a year ago. Microsoft said it was in their road map, but kept pushing it out. Recently they closed that feature enhancement saying it was satisfied natively within the new version of Microsoft Stream. Then you read that they only offer anonymous access to prerecorded videos hosted in Sharpoint O365 or OneDrive and not live streams. They promised that Stream would support this. After waiting all that time for this feature, they change their mind and completely ignore it. Really disappointed.

@dmongelli It is unfortunate, but the new changes coming to Stream 2.0 are good. I was like you, waiting for the enhanced analytics that were promised to come in Q2 of 2020. It ended up getting pushed out to Q4, and then completely cancelled.
