Microsoft Stream for SharePoint has been a pivotal platform for managing and sharing videos within enterprises, promoting efficient knowledge exchange and engagement. And now, a groundbreaking feature has arrived that takes the user experience to a whole new level: the ability to add videos to playlists right from the video page itself.
Streamlining Collaboration with Video Playlists
Video playlists have always been a powerful tool in the realm of knowledge sharing and training. They allow users to curate a collection of videos that follow a particular theme, topic, or purpose.
