Microsoft will make Microsoft Clipchamp available to Microsoft 365 commercial customers through a targeted release programme, starting at the end of August 2023.
Clipchamp is a video editing tool built on OneDrive and SharePoint, which is already available to those using Microsoft personal accounts. Users can securely import media from their OneDrive or record new content with webcams and screen recording tools and then edit multitrack timelines with a drag-and-drop interface.

“Over the coming weeks this release will make it possible for anyone to easily and efficiently create videos to help streamline their productivity and enhance their work,” said Stefan Kinnestrand, general manager of Microsoft 365 in a recent blog. “Just like Microsoft Word gave everyone the power to compose professional-looking documents, and PowerPoint enables people to create compelling presentations, Clipchamp empowers anyone to produce high-quality videos they can be proud of.”
Video exports from Clipchamp can be shared though Microsoft Stream, embedded and played in Microsoft Teams, in emails with Outlook and on Microsoft Viva Engage.
Microsoft users and tenants who have opted in to the targeted release will be the first to create videos with Clipchamp in their Microsoft 365 accounts.
