It is called Embed Web Part. Here are the steps that you need to follow for embedding your content:

IMPORTANT NOTE

Here are the most common reasons why embedding may not work:

1. Embed code must be iframe-based (that is, start and end with tags). Embed code that uses tags is not supported.

2. Only secure web sites can be embedded. Make sure the URL of the web site begins with HTTPS.

3. Sometimes the SharePoint Site Collection Administrators in your organization might have blocked users from embedding content. In such a case, you may see an error message that says, “Embedding content from this website isn't allowed.” To get this resolved you need to see your SharePoint Administrator.
