Microsoft’s Windows 11 platform has just received a dynamic upgrade in the form of ‘Copilot,’ a robust AI assistant. Copilot is a digital ally, tailored to enhance online experience by streamlining tasks across Microsoft’s suite of web and productivity applications. Think of it as a savvy companion, adept at simplifying your interactions with Bing, the Edge browser and the Microsoft 365 software suite, ultimately making digital life more seamless and efficient.
The exciting news is that Copilot will debut alongside the upcoming Windows 11 updates on September 26, and starting from November 1, it will be accessible through Microsoft 365. However, it is worth noting that this powerful AI assistant comes at a cost, with Microsoft revealing earlier this year that it will be priced at $30 per user per month apart from the existing subscription fees.
In addition to these developments, Microsoft is amplifying its Bing search engine by integrating OpenAI’s DALL-E 3, an AI capable of generating images, promising to make your online searches more visually engaging. Microsoft’s unwavering commitment to AI innovation is unmistakable, with Copilot being the latest testament to their expanding AI portfolio. Their faith in the potential of generative AI, capable of crafting text, images, sounds, and beyond, is poised to capture the attention of rivals like Alphabet and Apple in the tech arena.
In addition to the AI news, Microsoft also introduced some cool new hardware. They unveiled three new laptops and these were the Surface Laptop Go 3, the Surface Laptop Studio 2 and the Surface Go 4 For Business.
Apart from all these, Panos Panay has stepped down from his role as product chief. Yusuf Mehdi, the head of consumer marketing, has stepped up to lead the Surface and Windows businesses.
