Windows 10 Sway app officially launches, Windows Phone version in the works

After appearing in the Windows Store earlier this month, Microsoft has now officially launched the Sway app for Windows 10. Like the version that was previously released on the web and on iOS, the Windows 10 version allows users to create detailed multimedia presentations that can be shared online.

Here's what Microsoft has to say about Sway for Windows 10:

"Sway for Windows combines the full richness of Sway on the web with additional capabilities on your PC or tablet. This means you can use all of Sway's integrated content sources along with the power of the built-in design engine to build, edit and share your Sways, whether you're on the go with your Windows tablet or working at your desk with a PC or laptop. Want to capture the moment? Snap photos right into Sway using the built-in camera on your Windows device. And if you're ready to present at a conference or to students and classmates, the Sways you've already loaded will be available offline when you don't have Internet access or Wi-Fi is spotty. While some elements of your Sway may still need the Internet (such as interactive maps or cloud-hosted videos), this is a first step in addressing one of the most common feedback requests we heard during Sway Preview. Sway for Windows also allows you to stay logged in with multiple accounts at once if you use the same device for both work and home."

Microsoft also revealed that Sway itself is no longer considered to be in preview mode, and is now generally available for all Office 365 business and education subscribers worldwide. Finally, Microsoft says that a version of Sway for Windows Phone is in the works and will be released "in the coming months."
