Microsoft today announced some exciting new capabilities for Sway on the web. Find the list of new features below.
- Sway now also lets you easily embed a variety of web content types from other services in your Sway—including videos, images, audio clips, maps, charts and documents. This expands the types of interactive multimedia you can include in Sway to help communicate your ideas. To get started, simply copy the embed code for your desired content from the third-party site (often found by accessing the site’s Share button). Then in the Sway Storyline, click the + button, select an Embed card and paste the code. Check out this help article for supported sites and more details.
- Now, Sway supports importing content from older Word .doc and PowerPoint .ppt file formats—in addition to the latest .docx and .pptx extension formats, which are already supported.
- It is possible to now import PDF, Word and PowerPoint content directly from OneDrive. In the Add Content pane, select OneDrive, navigate to the desired document and then select Add or drag the document directly into the Storyline. The text and images from the document will then show up in your Sway.
- Added Separate as an option when grouped cards are selected. Simply tap or click Change Layout and then tap or click Separate. Each card in the Group or Stack now stands on its own.
