Sway

...because impressive presentations are more fun.

Microsoft Sway serves as an alternative to PowerPoint. It is designed for online presentation and can be shared or co-edited with just the URL. After dropping in your photos and videos, Sway's design engine pieces your content together beautifully. It can integrate your files from Word or OneNote into a striking Sway presentation and it automatically adjusts to look great on any screen.
