Groups vs Channels, What's the Difference?

Groups and channels are used within Microsoft Stream to organize videos.

Groups

  • Videos that are added to an MS Stream group are available only to members of that group (unless specified within the video permission settings).
  • You can also create your own private groups and invite members to join.
  • Videos can be added to more than one group.

Channels

  • Unlike groups (Which control who can see videos), channels are intended to help organize videos.
  • Channels can be private (within a group) or company-wide (available to the entire university).
