Microsoft Copilot for Mac isn’t available but there are a couple of easy ways you can install a web app version of Copilot on a Mac.
Copilot is Microsoft’s AI assistant and although it has now been released on iOS and iPadOS, there’s still no Copilot app for Macs.
Copilot (formerly Bing chat) is similar to Open AI’s ChatGPT although apart from allowing you to ask questions, write emails and summaries, it even creates images thanks to integration with DALL-E3.
Not only this, but it allows you to access Open AI’s GPT-4 without having to pay a subscription like you do with ChatGPT.
In our tests, we’ve found that Copilot can produce results very similar to ChatGPT although it is limited to 30 responses per thread, you can only upload image files and there’s no chat history.
If you’re interested in using Copilot more regularly on your Mac, here’s a few ways to install it and integrate it with macOS.
