Microsoft Sway is the latest creation from Microsoft to develop presentations, reports and newsletters.From now officially available for Windows 10 and iOS.
Microsoft made official by the end of 2014 a new application called ” Microsoft Sway “, aimed primarily at creating reports, newsletters and interactive presentations. At that time, Sway announced in private beta, so only a fortunate few had the opportunity to try this software and collaborate with development. Fortunately, this restriction has come to an end following the official launch of Sway, which is now available in both the App Store and theMicrosoft Store.
Sway is a new application developed from scratch by engineers from Microsoft that aims to simplify the development of presentations and, above all, make them more suited to the times in which we find ourselves. It is for this reason that Sway allows, among other functions, integrating sounds SoundCloud, YouTube videos or clips came in loop.
The target to which it aspires is very similar to PowerPoint, but Microsoft insists that Sway is absolutely not the successor of this. The Redmond company says Sway looking more closely match students and companies that require interactive and engaging presentations, with minimal effort, such as those already made with programs like Prezi-. In fact, Sway is much easier to use than PowerPoint. However, the ways of Sway and PowerPoint maintain multiple similarities, it seems inevitable merger of the two medium-term applications.
Sway is the latest example of the profound renewal that is suffering Microsoft
In fact it would not be the first product that Microsoft “kills” in favor of an alternative developed from scratch and tailored to 2015. With Windows 10, Microsoft said goodbye to Internet Explorer for Microsoft Edge, a much more advanced than its predecessor browser and intended to end the fame that Internet Explorer has been harvested in recent years.
And it is that Microsoft is experiencing in recent years a metamorphosis at all levels. Since the arrival of Saya Nadella the post of CEO, we have seen how the company strategy has been modified in several ways: unification of products, restructuring of business, etc. All this with a facelift that has affected all products, from the most important (like Windows 10 ) to other less relevant. And obviously not Microsoft Sway stops being a fruit over the entire campaign Satya Nadella renewal being carried out throughout the company.
