New stuff in o365: Videos, Delve, and Sway!

Microsoft has added several new tools in Office 365 that are powerful, easy to use, and all cloud all the time:
First, there is Office 365 Video. Basically think of this as your "tube" for your business content that you want to promote:

Then there is Delve. This is a visual search tool that brings you lots of preview for whatever you are searching for. The search content will come from the o365 sites and your OneDrive for Business account.

And finally we have Sway. This will actually take you to (which still has the o365 tiles in the corner) where you can build an cloud hosted HTML5 based presentation from scratch, or import a Word, PowerPoint, or PDF file that will be rendered into the new format. This format looks good for building presentations that are perfect in mobile displays of various sizes.

I found all of these tools very easy to jump into and use, with good documentation and tutorials where needed. What have you thought about these tools?
