Hey there, kids! Have you heard about Windows Copilot? It’s this cool feature that can make Windows 11 even smarter with the help of AI. But guess what, the first preview of it isn’t that exciting. In my tests, I found out that Copilot is basically just Bing.com running through Microsoft Edge WebView. You can even change its name using inspect element. Bummer, right?
But don’t worry, Microsoft has big plans for Copilot before they release Windows 12 in 2024. They’re working on making it even better! They’re adding support for plugins very soon, which means you can do even more with Copilot. It’s powered by Bing AI and uses this thing called OpenAI’s ChatGPT-4 and Microsoft Edge WebView. Even though it runs in your browser, it can still interact with your computer and other apps.
Now, let’s talk about these plugins. They’re like extra features that you can add to Copilot to make it do even cooler stuff. For example, there’s a plugin that lets you give feedback to Windows directly through Copilot. Another plugin lets you change your Windows theme just by asking Copilot. There are even plugins to help boost your computer’s performance, close apps, and take screenshots. And get this, there’s even a plugin to suggest movies for you to watch!
Right now, Copilot is still in the early stages, but there are more plugins on the way. Microsoft is even planning to have a special store where you can get all these plugins easily. So, get ready to customize your computer, connect third-party apps, and do all sorts of fun things with Copilot!
To try out Copilot, you can join the Windows Insider Program and click on the Copilot icon on your taskbar. It’s not fully available yet, but they’ll release it with Windows 11 23H2 in the fall. So stay tuned for more updates on this awesome AI assistant!
