M365 Changelog: Use Microsoft Teams to produce Yammer Live Events

Rabia Noureen


MC513603 – This is an important announcement for customers who use Yammer live events. Yammer live events have historically used Stream live events for video processing. Microsoft is retiring Stream live events on September 15, 2023. Teams live events is the successor service that will allow you to create, host and produce live events within Yammer with the same functionality that you get with Stream.

While you will still be able to use the Stream live events option in Yammer until September 15, we’re rolling out two new ways in which Yammer live events can be produced:

  1. Microsoft Teams QuickStart: Use the Microsoft Teams desktop client to produce your event, generally used in producing simple events.
  2. Microsoft Teams external app or device: Use this to produce large-scale events, such an executive town hall, where a single stream from a media mixer is broadcast to an audience.

Once the live event is completed, the video if recorded, is stored in the SharePoint library of the community where the event was produced.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82054.

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling out the new Live Events experience in late February 2023 and expect the rollout to complete by mid-March 2023. 

How this will affect your organization:

Yammer Community Managers will see two new Teams options for creating Yammer Live Events above the existing Stream options.

While the existing Stream options for producing live events will be shown on the Yammer event scheduling page, only users of tenants that have Stream live events provisioned will be able to use it.

When will the Stream option for producing live events on Yammer retire?

  • The Stream option for creating Yammer live events will be retired and removed from Yammer on September 15, 2023.

What you need to do to prepare:

Please start creating new Yammer live event videos using the new Teams QuickStart and Teams External app or device options, instead of using the Stream Options.

While Live Events created using Stream will continue to function, you can choose to migrate those Stream videos from Stream to SharePoint. Please see this article for more information.
