Microsoft its furthering its AI integration to its OS by adding Copilot AI to Windows 11. Billed as a “personal assistant” by Microsoft, Copilot will have its own button in Windows’ taskbar, and will be capable of a multitude of functions, including adjusting computer settings when asked, summarizing or rewriting content that is being viewed, and of course, searching the web.
Interestingly, developers will be allowed to use plug-ins written for ChatGPT on Copilot, which could potentially make its functionality limitless.
“Once open, the Windows Copilot side bar stays consistent across your apps, programs, and windows, always available to act as your personal assistant,” explains head of Windows and devices Panos Panay. “It makes every user a power user, helping you take action, customize your settings, and seamlessly connect across your favorite apps.”
Copilot for Windows will begin public testing in June before a larger rollout soon after.
