Windows 11 23H2 Brings a Unified Copilot to the Stable Channel
The most anticipated new feature in the 23H2 release is Copilot (yes, it’s no longer Windows Copilot, just Copilot). The native AI-powered integration Copilot is available across the OS and is not simply accessible through the browser. It is compatible with all Microsoft 365 Office products, Edge, Outlook, Teams, Bing, and desktop applications. By right-clicking on any interface, using your voice, or both, you can launch Copilot.
With the help of the Ink Anywhere function, users of touchscreen Windows devices can easily enter text with a stylus. Moreover, it can comprehend your intricate writing. The fact that Copilot is compatible with all of your devices is its best feature. Even better, you may direct it to retrieve information from your smartphone and send a text message. That integration is pretty thorough.
On top of that, you can perform many OS-level actions using natural language prompts. For example, you can turn on DND, enable dark mode, take a screenshot, and do a lot of other things. Basically, with the 23H2 update, Copilot replaces Cortana entirely.
Apart from that, the new Snipping Tool now comes with built-in OCR technology to copy texts from screenshots seamlessly. You will also get a redesigned File Explorer with more modern components like Home, Gallery View, and OneDrive integration in the next Windows 11 update. Not to mention, Moment 4 brings native support for archive formats like RAR, 7Z, TAR.GZ, and more.
You will also receive a redesigned Pictures app with AI-powered backdrop blur features as well as other AI-powered features. Among other things, Paint has recently been observed trying layer support. Nevertheless, the Windows 11 23H2 update contains a lot of new features, and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) into many system apps hints that Windows 12 will become even smarter next year.
