Report: Microsoft’s event will be about Windows Copilot plugins, not “Windows 12”

Published on

Microsoft sent out invitations to members of the media to attend an event on September 21 in New York. Some parts of the event will likely be dedicated to the official unveiling of new Surface hardware products. We previously reported rumors that the Surface Laptop Studio 2, Surface Laptop Go 3, and Surface Go 4 would be unveiled at the event with some CPU and GPU refreshes.

Today, Windows Central, using unnamed sources, claims to have a few more details about what might be revealed at Microsoft’s event. As you might expect, Microsoft will reportedly show off some more AI-related software advancements on September 21st.

The report says that one of the big reveals at the event could be the addition of support for a third-party plugin for Windows Copilot, the generative AI assistant currently being tested by Windows Insiders. The story claims that some of these plugins will be demoed at the event, including those from Mem, Adobe, and Spotify.

Microsoft previously announced that third-party plugins would be coming to Bing Chat. So far the company has yet to pull the trigger on widespread support for this feature, although there are some reports that it has been rolling out to some users for some time now. Extending this support to Windows Copilot is definitely a no-brainer.

The new report also claims that Microsoft could offer more information about its productivity service Microsoft 365 Copilot at the event. Although it has been in testing by businesses for a few months now, the company may be able to officially reveal a timetable for when Microsoft 365 Copilot will be available to regular consumers during the event.

Additionally, the report states that Microsoft can demonstrate how PCs with an NPU (neural processing unit) will help boost performance while accessing AI tasks. The company could also introduce new AI features for Windows 11 apps like Paint or Photos.

Finally, the story claims what will most likely not be discussed at the event on September 21st. This includes specific mentions of “Windows 12” or any mention or disclosure of the Surface Pro 10 or Surface Laptop 6.

As usual, take unverified reports like this with a grain of salt. Also, Microsoft has previously made big changes to its press events at the last minute, and it can happen here as well.
