Highlighting Critical Meeting Resources in the Teams Meeting Recap

The Teams meeting recap feature highlights some of the important resources which can be generated for meetings. The recording, transcript, and attendance report are displayed under the Details tab for meetings accessed through the Teams calendar app.

How the New Stream Handles Storage Quotas

Storage for videos stored in the new Stream will be charged against SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business accounts.

Microsoft to Enable Recordings of Teams Meeting Recordings Outside Local Datacenter Region

In mid-February, Microsoft will roll out a change to allow Office 365 tenants in regions where the Teams and Stream services are not co-located to record Teams meetings for the first time. This might be good news for you, but it might also pose a data sovereignty issue because once you start using Stream in another region, that’s where the recordings will stay.
