Microsoft Stream is getting AI-powered voice enhancements and more

Microsoft launched Stream back in 2017 as a video platform for businesses, and it's been making improvements to it over time, adding more features and integrations with other Microsoft services. Today, it's doing it again with a range of new capabilities, starting with voice enhancements powered by AI. It means that the platform will detect voice in videos and try to make it stand out from background noise, something that could be useful when recording videos next to loud machinery, for example.

In addition to that, audio transcripts are expanding to a few more languages. This means that not only you can add captions to videos, but you can also search for words in the video to find what you're looking for. Now, this capability is also available in Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese and Portuguese (Brazilian).

On mobile devices, Stream is adding the ability to record and edit videos on the go, with options such as adding annotations, texts, and emoji. Videos aren't kept on the device, but are stored in the organization's ecosystem instead. This feature is coming to mobile devices "soon".

Finally, Microsoft is also expanding its ever-growing list of integrations between services, and Stream can now work with PowerApps, so you can make your own apps with Stream video built-in. This comes with the features you'd expect from Stream, including the keyword-based search mentioned above.

Recently, Microsoft announced the ability to migrate from Office 365 Video to Stream, which you can read more about here.
