Rumor: Will we ever see Windows Copilot in Paint?

We’ve seen Windows Copilot everywhere. Microsoft boasts that the AI-assistance tool can be used to make your tasks easier in its 365 (Office) apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. But what happens if we see Windows Copilot in Paint?

On Twitter, user @zeealeid shared a fictional concept of how Windows Copilot could be integrated into Paint. They suggested that Microsoft could add a feature that allows users to generate images from Bing in Paint. Mikhail Parakhin, who oversees Bing AI chat and Copilot, responded to the tweet, saying “We’ll see, won’t we?”.

There is no official word from Microsoft on whether or not they will add Windows Copilot to Paint, but the possibility is still there. Mikhail Parakhin’s response to a tweet about the idea suggests that Microsoft is considering it. However, it is important to take this rumor with a grain of salt until Microsoft makes an official announcement.

However, Parakhin’s track record of revealing Microsoft’s plans before they are made public gives this rumor some credibility. For example, he tweeted about a feature that lets you stop Bing chat from including web searches before it was officially announced. 

Windows Copilot is a powerful AI tool that has the potential to revolutionize the way we work and learn. Currently, in beta testing with Windows insiders, Copilot can help users with a variety of tasks, including creating drafts, making presentations, and summarizing long threads of emails. It is so powerful that Microsoft is confident enough to slap a monthly subscription price tag of $30 per user.
