Last month, Microsoft announced that it would continue its put-ChatGPT-in-everything adventure with a new Windows 11 feature called Copilot.
The company added AI to Edge and the Bing-powered taskbar search field months ago, but Copilot promises to be the most visible version of Microsoft's big AI in its biggest product yet.
Windows Insiders for Dev channel users, they will get access to version 23493, which will be the first to enable Copilot for public testers. After installing the update, users will be able to press Windows + C to open a Copilot column on the right side of the screen. It will use the same Microsoft account you use for the rest of the OS (we don't know if it will work without a Microsoft account. Like Bing Chat, it will have three different “chat style” settings).
In addition to chat, Copilot will also support AI image creation using OpenAI's DALL-E 2 model, the same technology used by Bing Image Creator.
Some features announced last month, such as support for third-party addons, will not be included in this initial preview.
