Microsoft’s Sway presentation software gets an official launch for Windows 10

Microsoft Sway is no longer just an experiment. The company announced the official release of its presentation app on Wednesday along with a Window 10 version.

Sway is Microsoft’s alternative to PowerPoint, offering a simpler web-based service with a fresh design. You can easily pull in content from other sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and drop them into a presentation. The app also includes pre-installed themes and a “Remix” button that lets Sway decide on a look for you.

The new Windows 10 app adds some new features based on early feedback. That includes the option to snap a photo using your device and drop it right into a Sway presentation. You can also use some parts of the service without an Internet connection, and log into multiple accounts at once. Finally, you get more control over the timing of specific elements in a presentation, and the option to share your work using Docs.com.

Sway is available now for Windows 10 on PCs and tablets, along with iOS devices. Microsoft says it’s still working on versions for Windows smartphones and Android.
