Office Mobile is a content hub which houses a bunch of content types – from your favorite Word, Excel, PowerPoint to Lens, Forms, PDFs, and now very recently, Videos. In CY21Q3, we announced an update which saw Stream video player integrated inside Office Mobile. This allowed users to access and play videos on their professional network with ease, be it Teams Meetings Recordings, demos or tutorials sitting on your OneDrive for Business. This was received well by our customers, to have their videos accessible right from one Office app. Now it is time to take this one step forward – Introducing Video Creation on Office Mobile. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82197.
With this latest update, you can create short video clips, edit, and share with the people in your network.
When this will happen
We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed.
How this will affect your organization
With Video creation feature, enterprise users (those connected with OneDrive for Business accounts) will start seeing a ‘Video’ entry point on the app. Users can tap on it and start recording short video bytes up to 90s, and enrich it with text, annotations, ink etc. and trim and share it with the people on their network.
As mentioned above, this is a feature for our enterprise users only. So, users connected with their OneDrive Business account will automatically see this feature on their app.
What you need to do to prepare
There is no explicit preparation needed by admins. You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
