Microsoft has quietly launched a dedicated Copilot app for Android. The new app is available in the Google Play Store, offering access to Microsoft’s AI-powered Copilot without the need for the Bing mobile app. Spotted by Neowin, Copilot on Android has been available for nearly a week, but an iOS version isn’t available just yet.
Microsoft’s Copilot app on Android is very similar to ChatGPT, with access to chatbot capabilities, image generation through DALL-E 3, and the ability to draft text for emails and documents. It also includes free access to OpenAI’s latest GPT-4 model, something you have to pay for if you’re using ChatGPT.
The launch of the Copilot app for Android comes a little over a month after Microsoft rebranded Bing Chat to Copilot. Microsoft originally launched its AI push earlier this year inside its Bing search engine, integrating a ChatGPT-like interface into search results. While that’s still available, Microsoft has dropped the Bing Chat branding and allowed Copilot to be more of a standalone experience that also exists on its own dedicated domain over at copilot.microsoft.com — much like ChatGPT.
Launching mobile apps for Copilot seems like the next logical step of expanding this standalone Copilot experience, particularly as Bing Chat Enterprise was also rebranded to just Copilot. While there’s no sign of an iOS version of Copilot right now, I’d expect it’s right around the corner. Until then, you can always use the Bing app on an iPhone or iPad to access the existing Copilot features.
