Microsoft Announces AI-Driven Microsoft Copilot To Enhance Productivity

The AI-companion is designed to empower people across work and life. Additionally, the company announced several new updates to Windows 11, Microsoft 365, Bing, Edge and Surface to meet the everyday needs of businesses


At a major event in New York, Microsoft announced the launch of Microsoft Copilot, a groundbreaking AI companion designed to revolutionise the way people interact with technology and enhance productivity. This solution will be available in Windows 11, Microsoft 365, Edge and Bing for a seamless AI-powered experience across applications and devices.

“We are entering a new era of AI, one that is fundamentally changing how we relate to and benefit from technology. With the convergence of chat interfaces and large-language models, you can now ask for what you want in natural language, and the technology is smart enough to answer, create it or take action. At Microsoft, we think about this as having a copilot to help navigate any task,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President and Consumer Chief Marketing Officer.
