Microsoft Sway is a presentation tool in Microsoft's Office suite of business productivity apps. Sway is designed to replace Microsoft PowerPoint for visual presentations and storytelling. But unlike PowerPoint, Sway aims to present to a digital audience, not a live audience. The presentation in Sway takes place via cards that create a storyline, and these cards can be edited or the sequence of them can be changed. As a result, Sway is more flexible than PowerPoint.

Sway was announced in preview in the fall of 2015.
