Good news - you can do both of these things, at least from a computer or a browser on phones and tablets!
For the iOS app this is on the backlog.
To add a YouTube video, get its embed code from the YouTube website, add an Embed card and paste the YouTube embed code to it.
To upload an audio file, add an Audio card and upload the recorded audio.
Good luck and thanks for using Sway!
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll let you know when we have any news!
This survey is now closed. Thank you for all your responses.
Hi Sway users, our engineers would like to learn about your experience when sharing a Sway. If you are willing to talk to us, please fill out the survey at https://aka.ms/SwaySharinguv
If you’re signed in using your personal Microsoft account (and not an organization Office 365 account), you should see a button that says “Connect to view your Flikr content.” By connecting this account, you’ll be able to see your images.
Good point! We'll keep that in mind.
Thanks for the feedback. We recently added flickr as an embed type! Make sure to let us know if there are any other types of embeds you find useful.
Now you can access Flickr without leaving Sway. Select Flickr from the Insert tab and connect to your Flickr account. Please find more information in this blog post http://blogs.office.com/2015/05/21/sway-has-started-rolling-out-to-office-365-added-more-languages-and-more/AdminSway Team (Official Rep., Office Sway) supported this idea ·
Thanks for this feedback! This is something we’re looking into. Do you have any specific ideas for what you’d want it to look like? Let us know in the comments! :)
Thank you for the feedback. We are considering using different visual treatments for the image that is being shared. I am interested to hear how you feel about having the Sway brand icon on the image, or perhaps Sway icon with a 'Made by <your name>' , or perhaps even a thumbnail preview of what the Sway looks like if they were to click in to view it.
Let us know!
Sway is grabbing the thumbnail provided by YouTube. Are you able to provide a screenshot of the issue you’re experiencing?
Sorry for the delayed response, and thanks for your detailed account of what was happening (and the screenshots)! We're logging a bug to track the issue and we'll update back once we reach a resolution. As for leaving us feedback without using votes, the best place to have conversational feedback is in the comments chains in this forum because we'll read through the comments of relevant idea submissions when developing a new feature or improving an existing one. You can also submit feedback my sending us a smile or a frown from within Sway.
Thanks for your suggestion!!

Thanks for the feedback. Actually you are able to move the inputs by long-pressing and resize by tapping “star-mark” after swiping right to left on the inputs/images. I hope it would help you.
Thanks for the suggestion!
Thanks for the feedback. It’d be awesome if the image can be magnified after it’s added to Sway.
We are currently available in a number of markets. Read more about it here: https://sway.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/684359-sway-language-and-market-availability

When you imagine audio in your Sway, is it that you want to add background music, narration, sound clips, or something else entirely? Are these sounds clips saved on your device or somewhere else? Let us know in the comments!

Sounds interesting. Thanks for your feedback.
Thanks for the feedback. It’s really an interesting idea! Do you imagine being able to crack open documents and add content from them? What type of content do you want to add? (Pictures? Text? Graphs?) Let us know in the comments!
Thanks for the suggestion! It’s on our radar to enable this.

Thanks for great feedback. It sounds really good idea. Actually, your Sway can be seen on any devices and browsers. Please try tapping “Share” icon on your Sway to get the static URL.
Interesting idea. It makes sense to create Sway based on the existing Sway you created. Thanks for your feeeback. Do you exclusively create Sways from your iPhone or iPad? If not, you can actually do this already on the web app by using the Duplicate feature.
