The company's flagship tablet up to speed with iPhone color options

Sway logoThe day after giving a preview of the next version of Windows, Microsoft has revealed another part of its play to take its desktop to the cloud—an upcoming addition to the Office suite called Sway. Designed to build Web-based interactive presentations, Sway is now available as an invitation-only preview. A tool designed for a new form of Web presentations and story-telling, Sway will run as a combination of client applications and back-end cloud services to intelligently assemble and format content.

Sway creates “sways”—multimedia, animated, interactive presentations that live within a Web container—that can be created, published and viewed from any connected device with access to Microsoft’s OneDrive service. Sway will allow users to use any device to collect or input images, text, and other media through native applications or a Web interface. Users can also grab content from other Web sources, including social media. Facebook and Twitter posts can be dragged and dropped directly into presentations.

Since its interface is Web-based, Sway will be able to run across multiple platforms, including Apple and Android mobile devices. Images and other content added to a Sway document will be stored in a OneDrive account folder.
