What is the difference between Microsoft Windows Copilot, Bing Chat, and Microsoft 365 Copilot

As Artificial intelligence is set to become more and more prominent in our workplaces, Microsoft has already been taking the lead and revealed 3 new innovative AI tools to make our digital experience more efficient and productive: Microsoft Windows Copilot, Bing Chat, and Microsoft 365 Copilot

These intelligent assistants are designed to streamline and enhance your interaction with Windows 11, Bing, and Microsoft 365, respectively.

In this article, we will delve into the distinctions between these three AI-powered features and what they can help us with.

Microsoft Windows Copilot

Microsoft Windows Copilot is a feature that will be available in Windows 11. It is an intelligent assistant that can help with finding answers, summarising content, customising settings, troubleshooting issues, and more. You can interact with Windows Copilot through voice commands or text inputs. Windows Copilot uses natural language processing to understand your requests and provide helpful information. You can launch Windows Copilot by clicking the icon on the taskbar or using the Windows + C shortcut1.

Bing Chat

Bing Chat is a feature that lets users interact with Bing using natural language and get summarised answers and creative inspiration. You can ask Bing Chat both simple and complex questions; use it for research; request summaries of articles, books, events, the news, sports results, etc.; ask for product comparisons—and that’s just the beginning. You can also access Bing Chat from other Microsoft products, such as Edge, Swiftkey, and Skype3. Bing Chat uses large language models (LLMs) to generate responses based on your queries and prompts.

Microsoft 365 Copilot

Microsoft 365 Copilot is a feature that works alongside popular Microsoft 365 apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more. It uses large language models (LLMs) and integrates your data with the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps and services. It provides real-time intelligent assistance, enabling users to enhance their creativity, productivity, and skills4. You can use Microsoft 365 Copilot to add more text to your documents, get summaries of your emails or meetings, draft presentations from topics, and more.

The main differences between these three features are:

  • Windows Copilot is an assistant for your PC settings and functions.
  • Bing Chat is an assistant for your web search and creative needs.
  • Microsoft 365 Copilot is an assistant for your office productivity and collaboration.
