Artificial intelligence (AI) and chatbots are tech-world terms you’ll be hearing a lot more about soon. Microsoft has also rolled out their AI-powered chatbot called Copilot. It’s free and designed to help with daily tasks using custom requests and real-time image generation using AI features. Copilot first launched via the Windows Insider Program before its official public release in November 2023 with the Windows 11 23H2 update.

Copilot uses OpenAI’s technologies to power its features. It utilizes the GPT-4 language model from OpenAI’s ChatGPT for text-based features, as well as the DALL·E chatbot for image generation. Copilot also provides unique features like Bing search when conducting web result searches, something not found in other similar AI-powered chatbots.

The free version of Copilot allows users to choose from three conversation styles: More Creative, More Balanced, and More Precise. Users can ask random questions, research topics, and request jokes and stories. Image generation with Copilot’s DALL·E feature allows users to create custom images based on their descriptions. This feature requires users to sign in to their Microsoft account. Microsoft also released a paid version, Copilot Pro, in January 2024 with additional features such as boosted performance during peak times, increased daily boosts for creating images, and access to Copilot across various Microsoft 365 apps.

Microsoft designed Copilot to be accessible on Windows PCs, Android smartphones, iOS devices, and the web. With its default inclusion in Windows 11 with the latest update, Microsoft is pushing for as many users as possible to try their new AI-powered chatbot.

To access Copilot on various platforms, you can use the dedicated Windows app on Windows PCs, download the app from the Google Play Store for Android devices, download the app from the App Store for Apple devices, and use the web app by visiting the official Microsoft Copilot website. In order to interact with the web app, users must sign in to their Microsoft account.

With the advancement of ChatGPT and DALL·E, Microsoft Copilot is capable of real-time text and image generation, thus allowing users to be creative without advanced technical skills. Its potential to change the world is significant, and it will be interesting to see how Copilot’s technology further advances and evolves in the future.
