Now on Android, iOS, and iPadOS, Microsoft's generative AI can satisfy our curiosity.
During and between the holidays, Microsoft made Copilot (formerly Bing Chat) available on Android, iOS, and iPadOS without much fanfare. The Android version was uploaded before Christmas To Google PlayAnd for Apple systems sometime after Christmas It can be downloaded first. AI-based support works similarly to OpenAI's ChatGPT: the user enters a question or instruction into the chat, which the generative AI answers in nice, rounded, concise sentences.
However, the service does not end there: it provides similar functionality on Google and Apple systems as on Windows. It can be used to automate responses to emails, help you write stories or scripts, create short summaries of long and complex texts, help you write a professional resume and keep it updated, create personalized travel plans, etc.
Copilot also supports working with images through its Image Creator function. The DALL-E 3 image generator runs behind this. The function, among other things, helps in creating social media content, branding and logo designs, can be used to create individual wallpapers, and film and video scenarios can also be visualized through it. The possibilities are only limited by the imagination, Microsoft promises, because by combining the capabilities of GPT-4 and DALL-E 3, Copilot takes our creativity to new heights.
They took it without advertising, like sugar
Although the introduction of the AI-based assistant has not been specifically promoted by any of the companies involved, according to information from TechCrunch, as of now. It has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times worldwide.
The fact that the application is free may have played an important role in this matter. The user can basically enjoy all the benefits of OpenAI's GPT-4 technology on mobile and tablet for free – while OpenAI itself only provides its GPT-3.5-based implementation for free, access to GPT-4 must be paid for.
Microsoft's AI-based assistant is only partially new to some people who actively live on their mobile phones. the In the Bing app Similar functionality was previously available on Android and Apple. Now, by the way, the Bing application (the Android version of which has been downloaded more than 50 million times) also uses GPT-4 and DALL-E 3. The bundling of functions into a separate application indicates that Microsoft considers Copilot not only as an additional assistant, but also as an independent product.
