Updated June 30, 2022: We have updated the content below to show as intended. Thank you for your patience.
When users click to play a video in the Hero web part section of a SharePoint site, the video will play inline. This feature allows users to watch a video without being taken off the SharePoint page and allows users to browse or scroll through the other contents of the page while the video plays. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93351.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling out by mid-July and expect to complete by mid-August 2022 (previously late July 2022).
Note: Some users may see this feature before other users within your organization.
How this will affect your organization
Video consumers on Hero webpart will now be able to consume video on the same site page where they encountered the video. That allows them to browse through other site content while watching/listening to the video, thus saving their browsing time.
What you need to do to prepare
You may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
