Microsoft Sway presentation tools to be added to Office 365 for business and education users

Microsoft is expanding access to its Sway multimedia presentation tools to Office 365 for business and education customers sometime later in May. Microsoft officially launched Sway to consumers in December for anyone with a Microsoft Account.

Microsoft stated:

"Sway for Office 365 will be available to First Release customers initially, and then we will roll out Sway to all eligible Office 365 customers over the coming months. Both Sway on the web and the next Sway for iPhone update will support logging in with Office 365 work or school accounts."

Office 365 business and education users of Sway will notice some differences compared to Microsoft Account users, such as replacing OneDrive as a content source with OneDrive for Business, along with a new "My organization" option for the Share feature that will allow users to share their presentations just with their business or school employees.

In addition, Microsoft announced that more languages will be added to Sway sometime this quarter for all users. At the moment, English is the only supported language but Microsoft plans to add Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish in the first wave of new languages.
