We’re excited to announce today that Sway is now collaborative and lets you create and edit together with others. Check out this blog post for more detail.
One of the great things about working at Microsoft is that you can build on the work of other teams. Several members of the Sway team formerly worked on Word and OneNote. We’re able to learn from that experience as well as build on some shared pieces of technology in Office. We’ve built the core collaboration infrastructure for Sway based on the co-authoring technology pioneered in OneNote several years ago, which has been lighting up across Office over the last number of years. Building on our shared technology helps us not only get these features into your hands sooner, but also addresses the really hard challenges. For example, while it is not uncommon for online editing tools to support co-... | Read more »
When we announced Sway, we knew that people would want to work on standout class projects, eye-catching business reports, engaging vacation recaps, or more, together—it’s the way things are done now, right? But Sway up until now has been a tool for individual authors to create polished content in a new and interactive way to share with their audiences. However, we know you’ve asked for shared editing in Sway in our feedback channels (such as UserVoice), and that Office has delivered real-time editing and collaboration features for years, allowing people to work together to share their collective ideas. On top of that, we can’t tell you how many times that we on the Sway team have said to each other, “I wish I could work on this Sway with you!” So now we’re rolling out co-authoring in Sway!
Whatever you want to make, it’s easy to create and edit Sways with other people. Simply share an edit link with anyone... | Read more »

The OneNote team can proudly say that the power of the collective has resonated throughout the country.
Shortly after our first event that honored University of Central Florida engineering student Albert Manero, The Collective Project and Robert Downey Jr. collaborated to surprise Alex—a child in need of a bionic arm—with his own Iron Man arm. We were all blown away by the power that story had as it circulated the Internet immediately after Robert Downey Jr. released the video on March 12th. The touching video brought tears to viewers everywhere, and thanks to the generous people involved, we all discovered the stunning impact that one action has when people selflessly come together to create something for the greater good.
After making a huge splash, it was time to give a new group of... | Read more »
Imagine an analyst who can quickly analyze and present data to help you see if you are meeting your business objectives such as increase profits, reduce costs or decrease patient length of stay. The analyst then repeatedly queries your data to select the best ten or so graphs that you should see based on your business objective. Your analyst conducts multiple statistical tests to rule out graphs that could mislead you because the visual pattern is driven by outliers. Finally the output is a Word or PowerPoint report that walks you through each graph and explains how to accurately interpret each. And your analyst can do all this work in seconds; all you need is to know how to use Microsoft Office. Sounds like a fantasy? Well the Excel team is helping BeyondCore, a recognized leader in Smart Pattern Discovery, to bring this to reality right inside of Excel and the rest of the Office apps.

Just over a year ago, we introduced Office Lens for Windows Phone—and over that time the app has become one of the most popular free apps on Windows Phone, with an average rating of 4.6 stars (out of 5) from more than 18,500 reviews.
Today, we’re releasing Office Lens for iPhone and Android phones.
Office Lens is a handy capture app that turns your smartphone into a pocket scanner and it works with OneNote so you’ll never lose a thing. Use it to take pictures of receipts, business cards, menus, whiteboards or sticky notes—then let Office Lens crop, enhance and save to OneNote. Just like that—all the scanned images you capture from Office Lens are accessible on all your devices.
