Remove distracting background noise in one click
Focus disrupters are common in workplace video, including those that come up in recorded videos like training or other communications. Noise suppression eliminates distracting background noise from videos in Stream, so you can focus on the person speaking, not what’s happening around them.
The technology for this noise suppression feature uses an algorithm which detects speech and other audio frequencies in a video, then isolates the most prevalent speech signal to separate it from any background noise. This gives the effect of enhancing the voice, while muting the background noise. General availability of noise suppression will begin rolling out to customers soon.
Record and share personalized video on mobile
Now you can more securely record and personalize videos that include annotations, text and emojis directly from the Stream mobile app. It’s simple and fun to create short video communications to share top of mind, team updates or any moment that is important to you. And with editing features like trim and adding additional video clips - you have a variety of ways to create customized communications.

Stream admin mode for managing videos
When the new Stream admin mode is switched on, admins can manage content on behalf of users, including content they don't normally have permissions to edit. This new admin mode switch replaces the previous "Edit in admin mode" links throughout Stream. This also enables Stream admins to be able to do searches from the normal search page for videos that are private. Which means if someone leaves the company, new owners can easily be assigned to manage the videos.
Company video policy in the footer of Stream
Previously, if you added a video company policy to Stream, it would only show up on the upload page. Now when you define a company policy, it is also shown on the footer of Stream. You can even give the company policy its own custom text to be displayed.
