Microsoft has been working hard to improve its content creation tool in Microsoft Sway. The web application now allows users to embed web content, such as videos, audio clips, maps, etc., into Microsoft Sway.
With the updated version of the application, you can insert the embedded HTML code of interactive online media – think of YouTube, Vine, Flickr and Giphy content, OneDrive documents and Google maps – and add it to your Sway.
In addition, Sway can now import content from PDF, Word and PowerPoint documents (including older .doc and .ppt file formats). You can do this by uploading files or adding them from your OneDrive storage to the application, and Sway will insert text and images directly into your creation.
