MC381948 – Stream (Classic) is transitioning to Stream (on SharePoint). Until Stream (Classic) fully retires, you can decide which Stream experience is most appropriate for your users on Office.com. Do this by configuring the target destination of the existing Stream tile in the Microsoft 365 app launcher from the SharePoint Admin Center.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88823

advertisment

When this will happen:

Targeted release (entire org): will begin rolling out in late May and expect to be complete by late June.

Standard: will begin rolling out in early July and expect to be complete by late August.

How this will affect your organization:

advertisment

SharePoint tenant admins will have the ability to set the target destination of the existing Stream tile in the Microsoft 365 app launcher from the SharePoint Admin Center. You will be able to set the target destination to either Stream (Classic) or Stream (on SharePoint) depending on your organization’s needs.

Target destination options:

  • Automatically switch to the new Stream (on SharePoint) when recommended: This is the default option. At this time, this option directs the Stream tile to Stream (Classic). However, in the future as Microsoft updates and adds to Stream (on SharePoint) it plans to point the Stream tile to Stream (on SharePoint) instead. Before making the change, we’ll give notice in the message center, giving you time to choose a different option if you want.
    If you don’t want Microsoft to change what happens when your users select the Stream tile, select one of these options:
  • Stream (on SharePoint): The Stream tile in the app launcher will always direct users to Stream (on SharePoint).
  • Stream (Classic): The Stream tile in the app launcher will direct users to Stream (Classic) until Classic is retired.
