Last week, Microsoft showcased a significant milestone by consolidating its AI capabilities into one unified experience known as Microsoft Copilot – your everyday AI companion. Copilot will harness the context and intelligence of the internet, your work data, and whatever you’re currently doing on your PC to offer even better support, all the while prioritizing your privacy and security. The integration promises a smooth and straightforward experience available across Windows 11, Microsoft 365, and web browsers via Edge and Bing. Copilot can either function as an app or manifest with a simple right-click when you need it. Microsoft has future plans to incorporate more features and links to Copilot in its most frequently used applications.
The initial rollout of Copilot begins tomorrow, September 26, as an early version that’s part of a free update to Windows 11. It will also be available this fall across Bing, Edge, and Microsoft 365 Copilot. Additionally, Microsoft announced exciting new experiences and devices aimed at enhancing productivity, fueling creativity, and meeting the daily needs of individuals and businesses.
Microsoft is committed to being the platform where potent and beneficial AI experiences seamlessly integrate into the products you use most in a simple, secure, and responsible manner. Not only is the company enhancing these experiences, but it’s also expanding them. From Windows 11, which is designed to offer the pinnacle of AI experiences, to Microsoft 365, Bing, and Edge – everything is coalescing on Windows 11 PCs, including Surface. With Copilot by your side, assisting you in completing tasks, fostering creativity, and connecting you to the people and the world around you, the possibilities seem endless. It’ll be intriguing to witness how these new capabilities will shape our work and daily lives.
