In recent years, the growing presence of artificial intelligence in our lives is about to become completely normal. Various companies have opted for consumer artificial intelligence, such as OpenAI with ChatGPT and Google with Bard, which has recently opened its use to the public. Now, Microsoft joins this trend with its latest release, Windows Copilotfollowing the successful launch of Bing with ChatGPT.
Previously, Microsoft has already made important advances in this field, such as the arrival of Windows Studio Effects or the implementation of DALL-E 2 in Microsoft Designer. However, with Windows Copilot, the company intends to offer us a true virtual assistant for our computers. In addition, we have also seen the implementation of Copilot in Office 365which helps us in the creation and edition of our documents.

Microsoft highlights that the PC will be the first platform to centralize AI assistance in our daily lives, using Windows in combination with Bing Chat and third-party plugins.
With Windows Copilotwe will have the necessary help to carry out complex projects, since it will be integrated into the virtual assistant.
We could say that it is a improved version of Cortanabased on artificial intelligence, or it could even be considered as the return of the classic Clippy, the assistant that we all know.
According to Microsoft, with Windows Copilot we will be able to obtain personalized responses, make changes to the operating system settings, play music lists and open applications.
In addition, the assistant will have contextual information about what we are seeing on the desktop, even if it is a third-party application.
Microsoft will integrate this artificial intelligence on the Windows taskbar, so we can easily access it anytime we need it.
Ultimately, they want Windows Copilot to be a true virtual assistant that is available with any type of application, with just one click to make our queries.
