Microsoft has recently commemorated the first anniversary of their AI-powered ‘chatbot’, which is now known as Copilot. This tool, which harnesses the power of generative artificial intelligence (AI), has been significantly enhanced over the past year, with the integration of new image editing functionalities. In addition, Copilot is now available across various platforms for free, making it accessible to a wider user base.
The first anniversary of Microsoft’s ‘chatbot’ also marks one year since the tech giant unveiled a new iteration of its Bing search engine. This new version was enhanced by OpenIA’s conversational generative AI, ChatGPT, signifying the advancement of the AI capabilities that the company has been incorporating across its suite of services. These advancements have been unified under the Copilot assistant brand, streamlining Microsoft’s AI-driven offerings.
Over the past year, Copilot has proven its utility by assisting in the creation of 5 billion images and facilitating 5 billion conversations. These impressive figures were shared by Microsoft in a press release issued to celebrate Copilot’s first anniversary.
Microsoft’s Copilot is now being touted as a “singular experience” for individuals who are keen on leveraging AI to enhance their creative pursuits. In line with this, new features have been integrated into the tool, including the ability to customize the images generated with edits directly from the tool itself, without the need to exit the chat interface.
This enhancement has been made possible by the integration of Designer in Copilot. This enables users to perform a range of edits on their images, such as blurring the background, boosting color, or reimagining an image with a different style. These features are freely accessible to all users, but those with Copilot Pro status can also resize and regenerate images.
Copilot is compatible with the Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers. It is also available on mobile platforms, with the Copilot application accessible to both Android and iOS users.
