Microsoft reveals its new AI assistant Windows Copilot
Microsoft has announced Windows Copilot, an AI assistant for Windows 11. Placed behind a button on your taskbar, Windows Copilot is designed to work across various different apps; perform operations such as copying, pasting or using the Snipping Tool; and generate summaries or revisions of your content.
Microsoft previously revealed Copilot for Microsoft 365 in March, touting it as capable of providing first drafts in Word or entire presentations with a single prompt. Now Microsoft appears to be freeing the Copilot from being siloed in apps, allowing it to spread throughout the entire Windows 11 operating system.
Microsoft also announced that the Microsoft Store on Windows will soon be infused with AI as well, adding a curated section dedicated to AI products as well as customer review summaries generated by — you guessed it — AI.
