Microsoft Copilot GPT-4o

It’s official: GPT-4o, the groundbreaking new AI model from OpenAI, capable of sounding like a human, is coming to Copilot across all platforms, sometime this year.

At Microsoft Build, the Redmond-based tech giant made the announcement and it even teased Windows users with the enhanced Copilot, by showcasing a video of the AI model talking to someone playing Minecraft, and offering them tips and tricks: it took only a few seconds to provide the player with an intuitive and human tutorial on how to create items in the game.

The GPT-4o-based Copilot is also capable of a wide range of convincing human emotions: it not only jokes with the player, but it’s also afraid when the player encounters some zombies, although, it does keep on offering ways to deal with these threats.

When presenting it, Yusuf Mehdi, Executive Vice President and Consumer Chief Marketing Officer at Microsoft, said that Copilot will change the way users interact with Microsoft devices and services, by allowing them to talk to Windows using natural language. Copilot GPT-4o

The new Copilot should be available to all platforms, whether they’re Copilot + PC devices, or not. Imagine all the Copilot versions, everywhere, enhanced with the new GPT-4o.

You’ll be able to talk to Microsoft Teams, or Microsoft Word (having a fiery discussion about a text would be quite the uncanny valley), and manage your projects using natural language.

This could finally be the way Copilot gets widely adopted by Windows users. Alongside the new and enhanced Copilot, the Redmond-based tech giant will debut Windows Recall to Windows users, as well, although that feature will only be available to Copilot + PC devices, for now.

But something tells me that Microsoft will make it available to regular Windows users as well, eventually. Maybe not now, but sometime in the future.

Talking to your devices is now becoming a reality. How do you feel about it?
