Microsoft Quietly Launches Copilot App with Free GPT-4 & DALL-E 3 Access

Microsoft launched the Copilot app with free GPT-4 and DALL-E 3 access (for original image creation) over the holidays on the Play Store and the App Store without any official announcement.

Over the holidays, Microsoft Corporation launched its Copilot app on the Google Play Store (link) and then on the Apple App Store (link) as “Your AI-Powered Chat Assistant” which gives free access to GPT-4 and DALL-E 3 models to all users. The app has a few rough edges at the time of writing given how it’s been less than a week. The official description reads “By combining the power of GPT-4 with the imaginative capabilities of DALL·E 3, Copilot not only enhances your design workflow, but can also bring your creativity to inspiring new heights.”

The app has 1M+ downloads on the Play Store with a 4.3 rating and a 3.7 rating on the App Store with a #4 rank in all Productivity apps on the App Store at the time of writing.

You can use it just like you would use Bing Chat, Microsoft’s Windows app for Copilot, or even ChatGPT, being able to ask the tool to create original images from your prompts or to analyze information from uploaded images (it can’t tweak images you upload as of now).

There was no official announcement for the release and the app made it to the Play Store just before Christmas.

Most notably, the history is not preserved in the current version of the app and the app’s screens are not properly optimized for all types of screen sizes, with some artifacts and clear visual problems to be spotted. You also can’t sign out of the app once you’ve signed in, which you need to do in order to use the image generator.
