copilot not responding

Bing Chat has recently been renamed to Copilot, as Microsoft wanted a unified AI product across all platforms, but the name change hasn’t changed any of its features, or bugs, for that matter.

For instance, it seems that for many users, Copilot often becomes not responsive when users ask it to complete tasks, while they navigate sites or change tabs in Microsoft Edge. The AI tool becomes completely bugged on this browser, at least.

However, it seems that the annoying issue will finally get a fix as soon as January 2024, per Mikhail Parakhin’s claims on X (formerly known as Twitter).

One user asked the head of Microsoft’s Windows and Web Experiences Team, his opinion about the issue, and he said Microsoft would release a fix for it, right after the holiday season ends.

@MParakhin , I know you’re going to talk about the Bing Sidebar, but isn’t there any possibility that Bing won’t stop responding when we use the site but change the tab to see another thing? Its a little annyoing :

I know, annoys me, too. We have the fix, vacation time, don’t want to push it out until after the holidays.

Note: Bing Sidebar is Copilot, as Microsoft renamed the AI tool earlier this year.

For all of you wondering why is Copilot not responding, while doing other activities in between, you can now put your questions to rest. The fix is coming soon.copilot not responding

Copilot is also getting dozens of new exciting features in 2024, per Mikhail’s claims. We covered all of them in this article, but we’re giving you a hint: you will soon be able to build your profile for Copilot to take into consideration when conversing with you.

Based on it, the AI tool will provide personalized outputs, generating meaningful conversations based on your personal preferences.

The feature might debut in the first half of 2024, around the time Microsoft is bound to announce the next Windows versions, which, of course, will be heavily AI-based.

We’ll see more AI in 2024, that’s for sure!
