Microsoft has launched its AI assistant Copilot as a
standalone app on Android, following the rebrand of Bing Chat to Copilot. The
Copilot app is capable of functioning without the Bing mobile app and has reportedly
been available on the Google Play Store for a week now.
The Android version of Copilot works pretty much like ChatGPT;
users can ask the bot questions, as well as use it to generate images and
produce content. The image generation in Copilot is powered by DALL-E 3, while
its content generation function can be used to draft long texts such as emails
Like ChatGPT, Copilot also exists separately in its web
version at copilot.microsoft.com. If there is one thing that makes Copilot
better than ChatGPT, it is that the former offers free access to OpenAI’s
latest GPT-4 model, while ChatGPT requires its users to pay for this access. Perhaps
it wouldn’t be long until Microsoft, too, decides to turn this into a paid option.
Microsoft is also expected to launch an iOS version of the app soon. Until then, iOS users can use the Bing app on their devices to access the current Copilot features.
