Microsoft Copilot, Your Companion for Everyday Tasks Powered by Artificial Intelligence
We are entering a new era of AI, one that is fundamentally changing how we relate to and benefit from technology.
With the convergence of chat interfaces and large language models you can now ask for what you want in natural language and the technology is smart enough to answer, create it or take action.
At Microsoft, the team thinks about this as having a copilot to help navigate any task.
They have been building AI-powered copilots into Microsoft's most used and loved products – making coding more efficient with GitHub, transforming productivity at work with Microsoft 365, redefining search with Bing and Edge and delivering contextual value that works across users' apps and PC with Windows.
They have taken the next step to unify these capabilities into a single experience called Microsoft Copilot, your everyday AI companion.
Copilot will uniquely incorporate the context and intelligence of the web, users' work data and what users are doing in the moment on their PC to provide better assistance – with users' privacy and security at the forefront.
It will be a simple and seamless experience, available in Windows 11, Microsoft 365, and in Microsoft's web browser with Edge and Bing.
It will work as an app or reveal itself when users need it with a right click.
The company will continue to add capabilities and connections to Copilot across to their most-used applications over time in service of their vision to have one experience that works across users' whole life.
Copilot will begin to roll out in its early form as part of Microsoft's free update to Windows 11, starting September 26th, 2023 — and across Bing, Edge, and Microsoft 365 Copilot this fall.
They’re also announcing some exciting new experiences and devices to help users be more productive, spark their creativity, and to meet the everyday needs of people and businesses.
- With over 150 new features, the next Windows 11 update is one of the company's most ambitious yet, bringing the power of Copilot and new AI powered experiences to apps like Paint, Photos, Clipchamp and more right to users' Windows PC.
- Bing will add support for the latest DALL.E 3 model from OpenAI and deliver more personalized answers based on users' search history, a new AI-powered shopping experience, and updates to Bing Chat Enterprise, making it more mobile and visual.
- Microsoft 365 Copilot will be generally available for enterprise customers on November 1st, 2023, along with Microsoft 365 Chat, a new AI assistant that will completely transform the way users work.
- Additionally, Microsoft introduced powerful new Surface devices that bring all these AI experiences to life for users, and they are available for pre-order beginning on September 21st, 2023.
