M365 Changelog: (Updated) Stream on SharePoint – Video Collections Page

MC397430 – Updated August 2, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

SharePoint video collections pages make it easy to gather and display all videos from a SharePoint site collection in one place. This feature is particularly helpful for schools, universities and other organizations that tend to share videos in Teams channels. 

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93352 

When this will happen:

Microsoft will begin rolling out by mid-July and expect to complete by mid-August (previously late July).

How this affects your org:

With this feature you will be able to create a tab in your Teams channel that links directly to a specific collection of videos.

Empty state video collections page

Note: You may see an empty state video collections page in the case your document library is empty. Whenever user creates a new site, an auto generated static layouts page for video collections gets created. This is a collection of all videos from the site’s document library shown in Highlighted content webpart.

In order to access this static page, please append /_Layouts/15/Video_Collections.aspx to the site url. Once this page is edited and published, it will start appearing in the site pages as well.

What you need to do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. You may want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
