Microsoft Word for Web, which is available to all users for free, supports interactive applications.
From today, you can embed YouTube videos or content and other popular services. All you have to do is copy the link and paste it into a document. Once Word recognizes the link, it automatically converts it to a video player.
With this change, you no longer need to change tabs to watch a video in a document.
Word for Web only supports 12 content providers, but Microsoft promises to expand that list very soon. Below are all the currently supported services.
How to embed YouTube video in Word for Web
Open the office.com page in your browser to start Word.
Create a new document or open an existing one.
Copy a shared link from one of the supported sources (for example, YouTube or Vimeo).
Return to the document and paste the link.
Word will recognize the link and integrate the content.
