M365 Changelog: Variable playback speed for Teams meeting recordings

MC271911 – For Teams meeting recordings saved to OneDrive & SharePoint, you’ll now be able to change the playback speed (0.5x – 2x) while watching the video. Watching a Teams meeting recording at a playback speed greater than 1 is a great way to save time!

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82002.

When this will happen:

  • Targeted Release: Microsoft expects to begin the targeted release rollout in early August and be fully rolled out by approximately early September
  • General Availability: Microsoft expect to begin the GA rollout in early September and expect that release to be fully rolled out by approximately late September

How this will affect your organization:

Users will see an icon in the bottom right corner of Teams meeting recordings that opens the Playback speed menu. This menu contains options for slower speed (0.5x), normal speed (1x), and faster speed (1.2x, 1.5x, 1.8x, and 2.0x). The setting that a user chooses will persist for the duration of their browser session; they can change it at any time using the Playback speed menu.
