Microsoft has been hard at work polishing its content creation tool Sway. The Web appnow allows users to embed content from the Web, like videos, audio clips, maps and more.

The updated version of the app lets you paste the HTML embed code from online interactive media — think content from YouTube, Vine, Flickr and Giphy, OneDrive documents and Google Maps — and add it to your Sways.

In addition, Sway can now import content from PDF, Word and PowerPoint documents (including older .doc and .ppt file formats). You can do this by either uploading files or adding them from your OneDrive storage in the app, and Sway will add the text and images right into your creation.

Sway recently opened up its preview so you can sign up without an invite and went worldwide earlier this month.
