Microsoft has brought its Copilot AI to Android-based smartphones with the launch of a Microsoft Copilot app in Google’s Play store. The app's listing suggests it was added to the Play Store on 19 December.

Microsoft says the app, which is a renamed version of Bing Chat, allows users to improve their productivity and generate responses or create visuals from complex questions within both GPT-4 and DALL·E 3.

For the security conscious, Microsoft says that no data is shared with third parties, nor collected, and that the user can request that data be deleted.

While only an Android version is available right now, iOS users can download the Bing app to access similar Copilot features.

So far the app has garnered nothing but five-star ratings based on more than 5,000 downloads.

*Update*

It took Microsoft less than a week to just as quietly launch a Copilot AI app for iOS-based devices. It runs the same as the Android version, so users will need to sign into a Microsoft account for more functionality.
