Teams Live Events

Live Events using Teams and Stream

With Teams live events, you can broadcast video and meeting content to large online audiences.

You can create a live event to deliver to your audience wherever they are, using Microsoft Stream or Teams.
Teams delivers chat-based collaboration, calling, meetings, and live events, so you can expand the audience of your meetings. Teams live events is an extension of Teams meetings, enabling users to broadcast video and meeting content to a large online audience. These are meant for one-to-many communications where the host of the event is leading the interaction and audience participation is primarily to view the content shared by host. The attendees can watch the live or recorded event in Teams, and/or Stream, and can interact with the presenters using moderated Q & A. Screen sharing is also available in Teams live events.

Event group roles
Live events in Teams allows multiple roles (organizer, producer, presenter, and attendee) to broadcast and participate in an event.

Teams provides the ability for the organizers to create an event with the appropriate attendee permissions, designate event team members, select a production method, and invite attendees.

The attendee experience
The attendee experience is the most important aspect of live events and it’s important that the attendees can participate in the live event without having any issues. The attendee experience uses Stream Player (for events produced in Teams) and Azure Media Player (for events produced in an external app or device) and works across desktop, browser, and mobile (iOS, Android). Office 365 provides Teams and Yammer as two collaboration hubs, and the live attendee experience is integrated into these tools.
