Microsoft has begun to release the redesigned version of Copilot for Windows, as well as its Android and iOS apps. It also introduced new Copilot features.
Microsoft Copilot update: In January 2024, Microsoft Copilot has released apps for Android and iOS. Now, less than a month after its release, Microsoft has decided to give the app a new look on both platforms. The company announced in an update to its official blog post that Microsoft Copilot’s Android and iOS apps now have a more streamlined appearance. In addition, Microsoft has introduced a cleaner and sleeker look, as well as a new Copilot-generated carousel of suggested prompts.
According to 9To5 Google, when users open the app, a new carousel displays new suggestions and prompts above the text, image, and voice input fields. The newly-designed Microsoft Copilot app goes even further by offering a subscription to Copilot Pro and OpenAI’s GPT-4 for even more advanced results.
Windows users can now enjoy this updated experience as well. Yusuf Mehdi, Executive Vice President, Consumer Chief Marketing Officer, stated in the blog that “we are launching a significant new update to our Microsoft Copilot experience on copilot.microsoft.com and our Copilot app on iOS and Android app stores coincident with the launch of our Super Bowl ad.”
New Features added to Microsoft Copilot
Microsoft has not only released a redesigned experience but also revealed a number of helpful features for its new AI assistant. The company announced on its blog that users can now use Copilot’s inline editing feature to customize the images they create. What’s more? Those who use this feature for free can also access it. In addition, the company stated that Copilot “has you covered, all for free,” whether you want to blur the background of your photo to make your subject stand out or highlight an object to make it pop with enhanced color.
Alternatively, pro or paying users will be able to resize and regenerate images between landscape and square formats without ever having to exit chat. Finally, the company disclosed that Designer GPT—which “will offer an immersive, dedicated canvas inside of Copilot where you can visualize your ideas”—will be available soon within the platform.
