If you have grown tired of making the same old presentations using the PowerPoint application in Microsoft’s Office suite perhaps you may like to give Sway a try. It is a new presentation app that Microsoft has announced today. Microsoft describes it as a new way to create interactive, web-based presentation through a phone or a web browser that “looks great on any screen.”
The canvas one creates with this application is called a Sway and its unlike a document in the traditional sense. The app builds these canvases from the ground up for web and devices so it can adapt to the device’s display that its being viewed on.
Everything is cloud native so users can easily drop in new content from cloud storage, social networks and their different devices. Built-in content sources include Facebook, Twitter, OneDrive, YouTube, users’ devices and Microsoft promises that embed support for other content will be added soon.
Users can choose from a variety of layouts for the Sway, both linear and non-linear, and it will always be easily shareable even with those that don’t have Sway.
Initially Microsoft is only releasing a preview of Sway through the official website. Sign up at the website to request an invite. It will be available for interested users everywhere but will only have support for US English at this point in time. Microsoft notes that the preview shoes Sway at a very early point so one should expect major updates in the coming months.
