Microsoft introduces Copilot, a sophisticated AI application now available on iOS and iPadOS, expanding its reach subsequent to its successful launch on the Android platform. The app presents users with an array of advanced AI functionalities, notably integrating with the DALL-E 3 AI image generator and granting access to OpenAI’s cutting-edge GPT-4 model, all accessible without requiring a paid subscription.
Powerful AI Functionalities
Similar to the ChatGPT mobile app, Copilot offers a comprehensive suite of features previously found in Bing Chat. Users can perform routine tasks such as answering queries, composing emails, and summarizing texts. Additionally, the integration with the DALL-E 3 AI image generator empowers users to create images directly within the app, adding a creative dimension to its capabilities.
Access to GPT-4: A Leap in AI Advancement
A significant differentiator between Microsoft Copilot and the free version of ChatGPT, operating on the GPT-3.5 model, is Copilot’s access to the more advanced GPT-4. This latest iteration of the large language model developed by OpenAI allows Copilot users to harness state-of-the-art AI advancements without the necessity of a paid subscription, marking a substantial stride in AI accessibility.
Microsoft’s Vision for Copilot
Beyond a mere rebranding from Bing Chat to Copilot, Microsoft’s move signifies a strategic initiative to establish Copilot as a distinct AI service akin to ChatGPT, notes NIX Solutions. The app’s expansion across various mobile platforms and the development of a standalone web interface underscores Microsoft’s commitment to offering users a more integrated and enriched AI experience, independent of its Bing ecosystem.
