“Sway now also lets you easily embed a variety of web content types from other services in your Sway—including videos, images, audio clips, maps, charts and documents. This expands the types of interactive multimedia you can include in Sway to help communicate your ideas”.
Some of the sources which will now be supported by Sway to import and embed content in the presentations include Excel online, powerpoint online, Vimeo, Vine etc. The update also shows the support for older word documents like .doc and powerpoint presentation in .ppt format.
