Microsoft has expanded the accessibility of its artificial intelligence (AI) assistant, Copilot to all Windows 11 and Windows 10 users. With this Microsoft Copilot is brought to a broader user base and it's exciting to see if it’s just another AI tool that will fade into obscurity or if it does offer some tangible benefits to users.
What is Microsoft Copilot?
Microsoft Copilot is an AI-powered assistant designed to seamlessly integrate into Windows computers, while effectively replacing its predecessor, Cortana. The recent months have witnessed how Microsoft has been delving into AI features through a partnership with OpenAI for ChatGPT and DALL-E, depicting its commitment towards advancing AI capabilities.
What are the key features of Microsoft Copilot?
- Performing a Variety of Tasks: Performing tasks is one of Copilot’s core functionalities that lies in its ability to respond to user queries and facilitate actions within Windows 11. The tasks include changing settings, summarizing queries, or opening relevant applications. With these users can conveniently access Copilot on the taskbar or by using the shortcut Win + C for quick and easy navigation.
