Apple and Android Users Can Now Download Microsoft Copilot
During the most recent holiday season, Microsoft has secretly introduced its Copilot programme for download for mobile operating systems such as Android, iOS, and iPadOS. This application, which was originally known as Bing Chat, functions similar to OpenAI’s ChatGPT in that it provides users with a versatile AI-powered assistant that can assist them with a variety of activities.
Copilot on iOS and Android:
Microsoft Copilot is now accessible for both iOS and Android users, extending its capabilities to a broader audience. This app allows users to input queries or prompts, much like other AI chatbots, and receive responses generated by artificial intelligence. The range of tasks Copilot can assist with includes drafting emails, creating stories or scripts, summarizing complex texts, building personalized vacation itineraries, updating job resumes, and more.
In addition to text-based assistance, Copilot introduces the Image Creator tool, powered by DALLE 3. This feature enables users to explore new styles and ideas, curate social media content, design brand motifs and logos, create custom backgrounds, build portfolios, visualize film and video storyboards, and much more.
The application description highlights the combination of GPT-4’s power with DALL·E 3’s imaginative capabilities, emphasizing how Copilot enhances design workflows and elevates creativity to new heights.
Notably, Copilot grants users free access to OpenAI’s GPT-4 technology. This is significant as OpenAI’s GPT app operates on GPT-3.5 technology and typically involves costs for GPT-4 access. The availability of GPT-4 through Copilot marks a significant advancement in AI capabilities for mobile users.
Mobile Rollout and Rebranding:
Microsoft’s move to launch Copilot on mobile follows the rebranding of Bing Chat to Copilot in November. While the Bing app’s Bing Chat feature provided similar functionality before Copilot’s mobile debut, it’s plausible that Microsoft may transition to replacing the Bing app with the Copilot app in the future, although no official statement has been made.
Copilot, already established on the web, has now expanded its reach through the mobile rollout, emphasizing Microsoft’s commitment to providing Copilot as a standalone service with broader accessibility.
