Microsoft Copilot Released as a ChatGPT-like App on Android

Explore Microsoft's new Copilot app on Android, packed with AI-powered features similar to ChatGPT, hinting at an imminent iOS release.

Microsoft Launches Copilot App for Android: What's New and What It Means

In a low-key move, Microsoft recently introduced the Copilot app for Android, now available on the Google Play Store. This dedicated app grants access to Microsoft’s AI-driven Copilot without the need for the Bing mobile app. Although it's been on Android for about a week, there's no iOS version yet.

Functionally, Microsoft's Copilot app resembles ChatGPT in several ways. It allows users access to chatbot capabilities, image generation via DALL-E 3, and the ability to draft text for emails and documents. Additionally, it includes complimentary access to OpenAI’s latest GPT-4 model, a feature that typically requires payment with ChatGPT.

This Android release follows Microsoft's rebranding of Bing Chat to Copilot just over a month ago. Initially embedded within Bing search, the ChatGPT-like interface was integrated into search results. However, Microsoft dropped the Bing Chat branding and transitioned Copilot into a more standalone experience, now available at copilot.microsoft.com, reminiscent of ChatGPT's domain structure.

The move to launch mobile apps for Copilot signifies the logical expansion of this standalone Copilot experience, especially since Bing Chat Enterprise was also rebranded as Copilot. While an iOS version isn't visible just yet, it's likely on the horizon. In the meantime, users with iPhones or iPads can access Copilot features through the Bing app.
