A few days ago, Microsoft introduced a new Copilot app for Windows 11, which has a new user interface and is only available to some testers in the Insider Program.

If the app receives a positive response, it will be added to the stable builds of Windows 11. So, what’s new in the new Copilot app? Let’s discuss it in detail.

What is the new Copilot app for Windows 11?

Microsoft Copilot is an AI chatbot similar to ChatGPT. It is available in two versions: free and Premium.

Compared to Copilot Pro, the free version is more popular. Like other AI chatbots, Coplit can interact with your text inputs, control the features & settings of your PC, generate AI images, summarize large pieces of text, etc.
