Windows 11 takes a step further into the world of artificial intelligence with the introduction of Windows Copilot, its centralized AI assistant.
As confirmed by Microsoft, Windows 11 23H2 is coming in the fall, and it will ship with Windows Copilot. Windows 11 23H2 update is an activation package built on top of Windows 11 22H2, which means it is not a new version of the operating system.
At present, Copilot is already in preview stage and it comes with basic features, such as enabling dark mode, do not disturb, etc.
Integrating Bing Chat and several proprietary and third-party plugins, Windows Copilot aims to allow users to focus on their tasks and projects rather than juggling multiple applications.
Copilot lives on the taskbar, and its sidebar stays visible in your apps, programs, and windows, as your constant personal assistant. The feature aims to turn every user into a power user, offering assistance in performing actions, customizing settings, and ensuring seamless connections between favorite apps.
Windows Copilot enhances existing Windows features such as copy/paste, Snap Assist, Snipping Tool and customization. For example, you can ask Windows Copilot to copy, paste, rewrite, summarize or explain your content.
Like Bing Chat, Windows Copilot is designed to handle a range of queries, from the simplest to the most complex. Whether you want to check the local time in Cyprus before making a call or plan a trip, including flights and accommodation, Windows Copilot is ready to help.
With Bing and ChatGPT plugins integrated into Windows Copilot, users can access AI capabilities and experiences. Additionally, developers will have new avenues to reach and innovate for their customers.
Microsoft encourages developers to be part of the Windows Copilot journey and invest in Bing and ChatGPT plugins for future benefits.
