Launched in 2011, Office 365 has now hit the five-year mark. Long gone are the dreaded days of the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) that was its predecessor. Microsoft is continuing to both improve Office 365's features and release new ones.

This week, Microsoft previewed Microsoft Stream, a new business video service. It will coexist for now with the two-year-old Office 365 Video, but Stream will ultimately replace Video.
