Microsoft is experimenting with a change to Windows 11 that may lead to its AI-powered Copilot feature automatically launching on devices with widescreens. This change is part of the latest Dev Channel preview, allowing testers to provide feedback before a wider release.
The company is testing the automatic opening of Copilot on widescreen devices, a move that may raise concerns among users. While Microsoft hasn’t explicitly defined “widescreen,” it seems to refer to ultrawide monitors and less traditional desktop resolutions.
This development comes shortly after Microsoft introduced a Copilot key for Windows PCs, offering a chatbot-like experience. The latest change aims to make Copilot more accessible, but users may find it intrusive, akin to Microsoft Edge’s aggressive integration in Windows 11.
Additionally, Microsoft is considering more customization options for Copilot, with hints of potential third-party plug-ins or chatbots. The company’s efforts to promote its AI technology may face resistance, as users often prefer autonomy over automatic launches.
This move aligns with Microsoft’s broader strategy to integrate AI features into Windows 11, preparing users for a potential shift in how they interact with their devices. As these changes unfold, user feedback will play a crucial role in shaping the future of Copilot on Windows 11.
