If you’re a fan of PowerPoint, you may have heard about Microsoft’s latest presentation tool, Microsoft Sway. With Sway, you can create and share presentations like never before! In today’s blog, we’ll give you a basic overview as to what Sway can do as well as some of our personal favorite features. Let’s dive in!
Sway is a free app from Microsoft Office that helps gather, format, and share reports, newsletters, web pages, and presentations on an interactive, web-based canvas that looks great on almost any screen. That’s right, we said interactive! Use videos or interactive charts to engage your audience like never before.
If you’ve ever struggled with getting your PowerPoints to look exactly right, then you’ll love the design capabilities of Sway. Sway does all the formatting, themes, fonts, and more with its built-in design engine. All you have to do is put in your content and sit back and let Sway take care of the rest. You can even use the Remix! button to see automated looks in a snap. Drag and drop your favorite web content all without having to exit Sway. Get content from your social media accounts, Flickr, YouTube, Bing, and more! Creating engaging and interesting presentations has never been this easy. Trust us!
One of our personal favorite features about Sway is how easy it is to share your Sway creations. Simply send a link to anyone you wish to share with and they can see your work! No need to already have Sway or Office 365, literally anyone can see a Sway presentation you share. Want to keep things more private? No problem. You can change the privacy settings for any presentation so that you can control who sees the content or who can edit the content.
Sway is available in Windows 10 and can be used on iPhones and iPad as well as Microsoft products! Want to see a Sway presentation in action? Check out this Sway presentation we made to show our PowerSurveyPlus users how to create a survey!
