Microsoft Copilot is now available on the Google Play Store as your go-to AI companion for Android users
The new software was created by “Microsoft Corporation” and is titled “Microsoft Copilot” on the Google Play Store.
For Android users, Microsoft has released a new app called Copilot. Users can use the Copilot AI chatbot as a stand-alone service using the new app. Unlike the Bing app, which is essentially a search engine, this one is distinct. The newly released software is limited to Microsoft AI technology. There isn’t currently an iOS version of the app, but it has reportedly been accessible on the Google Play Store for around a week.
The new app was created by “Microsoft Corporation” and is titled “Microsoft Copilot” in the Google Play Store. Microsoft describes the app as “Your everyday AI companion” in the app description. The Android Play Store currently shows slightly over 5,000 downloads for the app.
How does one use Microsoft Copilot?
The Copilot software is functionally identical to the ChatGPT Android app, which was released earlier this year. The Copilot app will enable chatbot communication, DALL-E 3 picture creation, and email and document writing assistance. Additionally, it offers free access to OpenAI’s most recent GPT-4 model, which typically requires a ChatGPT subscription. Voice inputs are an option available in the new app. Text and photos can also be added as app inputs.
More than a month ago, Microsoft renamed Bing Chat as Copilot. Microsoft’s AI was initially integrated into the Bing search engine, which displayed a ChatGPT-like user interface in search results. Although Microsoft still advertises Copilot as a separate platform, this capability is still available. Additionally, it’s available on copilot.microsoft.com, the company’s own website.
This move to divide Copilot onto its own platform includes the new Copilot mobile apps. This corresponds with Bing Chat Enterprise’s recent rebranding to Copilot. Though it hasn’t been released yet, the Copilot app will soon have an iOS version. In the interim, iOS users can access Copilot capabilities on their iPhones and iPads by using the Bing app.
