REVISED: Regarding the Wiki Libraries in SharePoint, the wiki pages will remain on SharePoint. However, the Wiki Page and App are not available in January 2024.
I created a video on exporting the Wiki libraries content to a zip file and opening the pages into a Word file as a BACKUP. It will be available later this week. I will update this post with the link when it is available.

@_J-K_ SharePoint Wiki Libraries are not covered by this announcement, and there have not been any other announcements about them.

Would you mind to share the original document that talks about this? Thanks.

Guys, the data will remain on SharePoint but the Wiki Page and App are not available effective Jan 2024. MS also mentioned, users can download files from SharePoint. FYI: I had tested it. I was able to bulk export per channel the Wiki Libraries' content to a zip file and open the wiki page files in Word Doc. One concerned area; it is not intuitive where the images were placed on the pages. (I hope this helps. By the way, if you need help with converting wiki pages, inbox me.)
Here is the MS Post date Feb 21.
Updated February 17, 2023: Based on customer feedback we have updated the content with FAQs. Thank you for your feedback.
We are announcing that Wiki's will be retired from Teams. We are offering note taking capabilities through Teams Channels powered by OneNote.
When this will happen:
The following change will be rolled out starting early March.
How this affects your organization:
With this release, users have an option to export their wiki content to OneNote notebooks in Teams standard channel. After exporting users can go to the Notes tab to collaborate using OneNote in channels.
Soon Notes tabs powered by OneNote will be added by default when users create new channels. For now, users can create OneNote tabs manually using the add tab experience (via +).
We will share out the details of Wiki retirement in advance to help our customers prepare for this change.
What you can do to prepare:
We urge users to export their channel wikis to OneNote once it is available.
If your organization has not enabled OneNote you can review this documentation:
Why is Teams retiring wiki?
How can I take notes in channels after this change?
When & how are we retiring Wiki?
What happens to my existing data?
Does end user need to export wiki one by one or in bulk?
Who can export Wiki to Notes?
Is there a bulk export option available at tenant level?

@Teresa_Cyrus SharePoint Wiki page libraries are not the same as the Teams Wiki, there is no connection apart from the confusing names.
Teams wiki is stored in a hidden list in SharePoint, but is only useable from Teams, this is not the same as a SharePoint wiki library. SharePoint Wiki Page Libraries are not being depreciated, here is the support article about them Create and edit a wiki - Microsoft Support

I'm working on this subject for my company, I understand what is the "wiki tab" in the Teams client, but what is the "wiki app" ?
Because when I read the different stages of the retirement , for "stage 2" i understand the main difference is that wiki tab will be unavailable, while wiki app will not .
Or maybe I understood wrongly, as english is not my primary language (i'm french)
Thank for any additionnal information

Thanks but sorry. Many of us still dont get it:
You say that the Wiki as a tab does not appear automaticly pressing +. Alright. In April?
Do you say further: That it will be still possible to just search for the app Wiki? Till Summer? But thats still the tab!?!?
Can you please tell us in other words whats happens in summer using the words "App" and "tab"? Is there any difference beside autmatic appearence?
You dont mean this, right?
Thanks and sorry. Prob its simple
Regards from GER

The Wiki App is the Icon which is used to add a Wiki Tab to MS Teams.
The clickable Wiki Tab located at the top of the MS Team Channel Ribbon contains many Wiki Pages of your content.
Phase 1: Starting in April through Dec 31,
1) Users can not create any new Wiki Tab/Pages which uses the Wiki App icon to add the tab/pages. The Wiki app icon is still listed in the app list but with limited functionality.
2) A banner to export content to OneNote will appear in Teams Channel. Once the Wiki Page is converted to OneNote, the Wiki Tab/Pages becomes readonly.
Phase 2: In the summer,
1) MS will no longer support Wiki App and Wiki Tab/Pages. If something goes wrong, you can not call MS to fix it. My thoughts are start exporting sooner than later in case, you need help.
2) Everything I mentioned in Phase 1 applies.
Phase 3: Jan 2024.
1) The Wiki App icon and Wiki Tab/Pages will be LOCKED or HIDDEN from Team Channel ribbon.
2) Users can not read/write/export the content in the Wiki Tab/Pages from MS Teams. You can only download content from SharePoint.
3) The Wiki App icon will not be listed in the app list.
I hope this helps.

esp. the detail about the support.
I think this sentence in original Phase 2 MS-description is not proper at least confusing: "users will be easily able access (read/write) content in Wiki app."
But you helped here.
I will multiplicate that to all public broadcasters admins in GER.

Do you know if the links from 1 wiki section to another convert properly or do these need to be corrected too?
I still don't see the option to migrate to Teams Wiki to OneNote. Getting a little nervous that it's not there yet!
Mar 29 2023 10:13 PM
A lot of folks are anxious to get started with converting to OneNote. I checked the message center, MS has not posted any updates since Mar 17th. I wonder if we will see the banner by the second week of April.
Obviously, I have not tested with the actual exporting tool. However, I suspect the links will carry over with a problem. As soon as the exporting tool is available - trust and believe - I will complete a thorough test again. :beaming_face_with_smiling_eyes:
Thank you for your inquiry about the links. It prompted me to test the other attributes on the Wiki Page. Here are my learnings with exporting Wiki Pages from SharePoint to a zip file and then opening with MS Word.
On Teams Wiki Page, I created:
I encourage you to watch the Download from SharePoint video. I share my concerns about the images. The link is in the original post above.
