Teams Real Simple with Pictures: Record that screen straight into your Team with Stream

If I asked you to think of a scenario where you would use recording in the context of Teams, then I would wager that - today - you would probably say meetings followed by calls. Most people would - and that's as expected. Yet a month ago, the ability to record your screen was added to the Stream web app. Now, the ability to record video in Stream has been around for a few months in the mobile app but the big difference is that with the web app you can publish directly into stream channels after the video has been recorded. This functionality for mobile will absolutely come at some point - but today, it is important to know that because you can record and select a Stream channel whilst publishing, you can therefore publish directly into a Teams channel. Imagine - you need to show someone in the Team how to do something, or provide them with a canned demo, or provide the team with a video to analyse before a meeting. This is one of those key functionalities - like shared system audio - which kind of fly under the radar when they first emerge. Don't get me wrong here - its far from what it could be in the future being limited to 15 minutes, limited to Windows in terms of system audio and camera capture only possible when sharing the screen (as opposed to an app or browser tab). However, think of the future - when the 15 minutes limit is raised, when it's possible for macs, when camera capture is possible in all sharing options and when you have a set of editing tools. It's on a great trajectory
