Microsoft Integrates Copilot with Photos App for New Features

Microsoft has taken a subtle step towards enhancing photo management through the introduction of Copilot, an AI-powered plug-in for its Photos app. Though still in its early stages, Copilot shows potential for a more efficient photo handling experience.

Copilot: A New Wave in Photo Management

The unveiling of Copilot was revealed by Windows enthusiast @PhantomOfEarth. For users with the latest version of the Photos app (2024.11030.22001.0), a new toggle option for Copilot may appear in the plug-in settings.

Features and Limitations of Copilot

Not everyone using Windows may have immediate access to the updated version of the Photos app. Currently, Copilot's capabilities are somewhat restricted. It primarily assists in crafting slideshows, enabling users to effortlessly create and browse photo slideshows within the Photos app, facilitating a trip down memory lane. Additionally, users can easily set any photo as their desktop background.

Microsoft's AI Enhancements in Photos App

Microsoft has been consistently enhancing the Photos app with AI capabilities. Since November 2023, Windows Insiders have had access to advanced AI-powered features. These include background removal functionality, allowing users to seamlessly eliminate unwanted backgrounds from photos for more creative edits. Moreover, the Filmstrip slideshow mode has been upgraded, enhancing the overall slideshow experience and making it more delightful to revisit photo collections. A new timeline scrollbar, based on the time range of images, provides smoother navigation through the photo library.
