Microsoft announced it will be grouping all of its AI-powered productivity capabilities into a single app called Copilot
, making it “your everyday AI companion.”
Accessible as an app or by pulling up the right-click menu in most of Microsoft’s solutions, Microsoft Copilot will be available for Windows 11, Microsoft 365, and on web browser with Edge and Bing.
Microsoft’s Consumer Chief Marketing Officer and Corporate Vice President, Yusuf Mehdi, says “Copilot will uniquely incorporate the context and intelligence of the web, your work data and what you are doing in the moment on your PC to provide better assistance.”
While Microsoft has been rolling out Copilot solutions across some of its products, including GitHub, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Dynamics 365
, this will be the first time that Copilot will be unified as a “single experience.”
Microsoft says it is planning to continue to bring advanced capabilities and connections to Copilot, aiming to update its most-used applications to give users “one experience that works across your whole life” while maintaining security and privacy throughout.
Microsoft Copilot started rolling out with its Windows 11 update last month and will be available for enterprise customers this month. The Windows 11 update also introduces 150 new AI-powered features, including new capabilities in Paint, Photos, Snipping Tool, Clipchamp, and Notepad to name a few.
Included in Windows 11 is the new AI-powered Outlook for Windows
, which is designed to keep all email accounts and calendars in one place to streamline how users access their accounts.
Outlook for Windows will help users write emails, propose updates that will make communications clearer and more concise, and check for inclusive language. It will also incorporate AI-powered intelligent spelling and grammar checks so that all communications meet professional standards. Copilot and other advanced AI features will be coming soon.
Microsoft has been working for the last year to bring AI to a host of its solutions, including updates to Bing and Edge, as well as many of its productivity tools
