The tech giant also announced new features and additions to Microsoft Store, the company’s online store for applications, games and hardware.
Here’s what new in Windows 11:
The company said that it is the first personal computer platform to allow customers to harness centralized AI assistance for their use. Users can take the assistance of Bing Chat, Windows Copilot, and first- and third-party plugins to quickly get their work done instead of toiling across spending time on repetitive tasks.
Windows Copilot will work similarly to Bing Chat. Users will be able to ask for its response to a wide variety of questions. Tasks like checking the local time of disparate countries and finding flights and hotels can be performed by Copilot, Microsoft said.
Microsoft Store on Windows
The AI hub will be an exclusive space on Windows that will sift and sort the best AI tools, features, and customisations built by the developer community. AI-Generated keywords will optimise AI to create and provide search tags for apps. Customers will be able to scan reviews for apps by utilising AI-generated review summaries by collating thousands of reviews into a single summary. Users will have more options to reach customers with spotlight placement in the Store and Bing.com results as Microsoft Ads will broaden its reach beyond the US to more than 150 regions worldwide, starting in June.
Microsoft has been dropping hints about integrating AI features into Windows over the past six months, after Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer, said that “AI is going to reinvent how you do everything on Windows.”
