ChatGPT Powers Windows 11's New Feature: Meet the Windows Copilot

Microsoft's new Windows Copilot is set to simplify Windows 11 user experience with AI-powered utilities, powered by Bing and ChatGPT.

Windows 11 Integrates Bing/ChatGPT Bot: The Windows Copilot

Microsoft is introducing a transformative feature in Windows 11 with the integration of a ChatGPT-based Bing experience, dubbed Windows Copilot. This enhancement, accessible directly from the Windows 11 taskbar, aims to simplify Windows users' interaction with settings adjustments and offer unique AI-powered utilities.

Windows Copilot is designed to help users navigate and change settings without having to delve deep into the Windows settings, epitomizing the concept of "adjust my settings so I can focus." In addition, it extends its functionality by allowing users to summarize content from the clipboard or compose text.

Moreover, Windows Copilot serves as a gateway to the existing Bing/ChatGPT experience. "Just like you would with Bing Chat, you can ask Windows Copilot a range of questions from simple to complex,” says Microsoft's Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay. From checking local times overseas to planning trips, the tool is set to provide versatile assistance to users.

The Bing integration into Windows 11 is due to become available in June. While Microsoft had initially hinted at bringing the Bing experience to the Windows 11 taskbar, it had only created a link to the Bing web experience. With this development, Bing is now built right into a taskbar resembling Bing's sidebar in the Edge browser.

While it remains to be seen if this will sway Windows 10 users to upgrade to Windows 11, it will certainly put Bing and its AI-powered capabilities in the spotlight for those who have already adopted the latest operating system. The inclusion of Windows Copilot undoubtedly enhances Windows 11's appeal, highlighting Microsoft's commitment to making AI technology a pivotal part of the user experience.
