🔥 Microsoft’s Big AI Day

If you thought the Google I/O Conference featured a lot of AI earlier this month, yesterday’s Microsoft Build said ‘hold my beer’.

The tech giant unveiled some big announcements, including:

  • The integration of Bing as the default search experience inside ChatGPT’s browsing plugin — rolling out to Plus subscribers immediately, and free users in the near future

  • Copilot, an AI-assistant, coming to Windows 11 — supercharging actions on your computer with integrated AI tech.

  • Microsoft Fabric, a data analytics platform for developers that leverages the power of AI

  • A shared Plugins platform, allowing interoperability between ChatGPT and Microsoft’s product line

Between Google, Meta, and Microsoft’s constant shipping of new tools and features — it feels like the AI race is in an all-out sprint almost every week.

The new features are in beta, but are expected to be rolled out in Photoshop later this year.

Excited to try it? You can experiment with it via the Firefly beta app or by downloading the desktop beta app.
