In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has made tremendous progress and has become increasingly integrated into our daily lives. One area where AI is having a big impact is the technology world and Microsoft has now introduced Copilot for Windows 11. At the moment of writing Windows Copilot is only available as preview. When Windows Copilot becomes fully available we will update you in our blog and news section.
Windows 11 is the first PC platform to announce centralised AI support. We have already explained MS Copilot for MS Power Apps. In this blog we take a closer look at what Windows Copilot is, how it works and what benefits it offers for both individual users and professionals.
What is Windows Copilot
Windows Copilot is an assistant and works as a sidebar in Windows 11. This assistant can be invoked from the taskbar. Windows Copilot is no ordinary assistant. It is an advanced AI-powered collaboration platform designed to help users troubleshoot technical issues, configure settings, and perform complex tasks on their Windows systems. It is Microsoft’s answer to ChatGPT. It goes far beyond the conventional digital assistants we are used to today. Instead of simply executing commands, Windows Copilot understands and anticipates the user’s needs and intentions. Windows Copilot acts as a virtual assistant that uses machine learning and data analysis to guide users through various computing tasks.
How does Windows Copilot work?
Using Windows Copilot is familiar and easy. The Windows Copilot button is centrally located on your taskbar. Once opened, Windows Copilot’s sidebar remains consistent across all your apps, programs, and windows. Always available to act as your personal assistant. It helps you take action, adjust your settings, and connect seamlessly to your favorite apps. This way you can not only copy and paste, but also ask Windows Copilot to rewrite, summarise or explain your content.
You can ask Windows Copilot many questions, from simple to complex. If you want to call your family on the other side of the ocean, you can quickly check the local time to make sure you don’t wake up in the middle of the night. If you want to plan a trip, you can ask Windows Copilot to find flights and accommodations for you.
Benefits of Windows Copilot
One of the most impressive features of Windows Copilot is its ability to learn and grow the more it is used. The system adapts to the working habits of each user, resulting in a tailor-made experience. Over time, Windows Copilot can provide proactive support, making suggestions and taking actions based on predictions of what the user wants to achieve. This can range from automatic text completion to proposing complex tasks and steps in software development.
- Efficiency: Windows Copilot can streamline common tasks and speed up troubleshooting, saving you valuable time.
- Accessibility: Even users with limited technical knowledge can perform complex tasks with the guidance of Windows Copilot.
- Optimisation: By proactively making recommendations, Window Copilot can help optimise your system performance and security.
- Professional Use: IT professionals can use Windows Copilot to resolve technical issues faster and manage systems more efficiently.
