Microsoft is today introducing some new features for its Sway service. The latest update is bringing some much-needed additions to the service.
For instance, you can now add audio recordings to your sways which is pretty neat. The feature is only available to browsers that support audio recording, but most modern browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome support audio recording so you won’t really have to worry about that.
Microsoft is also making it much easier to navigate sways thanks to a new navigate view. With the new update, you will now see a new icon for the navigation that will show all the different sections in a slide and you will be able to jump to different sections using the new view:
Microsoft is also adding support for closed captioning to Sway, which means you can now add captions to your videos or audios on Sway. When you upload an audio file or a video to Sway, you will be able to upload the captions for the file as Sway supports the .vtt format.
The company is also adding the ability to automatically loop a Sway which is apparently something a lot of users have been waiting for.
And lastly, Microsoft is also adding view counts to Sway which will allow authors to see how many times their sways have been viewed by users.
