Microsoft Expands Copilot to Telegram

Microsoft’s Copilot, an AI-powered tool capable of generating text and answering specific questions, is now available as an in-app chatbot on Telegram, the instant messaging platform.

Currently in beta, Copilot for Telegram lets you interact with the AI chatbot as if you’re chatting with a friend. It can respond to a wide range of inquiries, from general knowledge questions like “What movie should I watch?” to specific queries such as “What baseball game is on right now?”

To access the bot, search for its username, @CopilotOfficialBot. It is free for Telegram users and available on both mobile devices and desktop. However, it does require your phone number.

Microsoft has expanded Copilot to several of its products, including Microsoft 365, Teams, and AI-first hardware like Copilot+ PCs. Its recent integration into third-party services such as Telegram suggests that Microsoft aims to bring its AI chatbot to other social apps.

Other companies are also embedding AI chatbots into their messaging platforms. Meta is testing Meta AI on Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp. Google’s Gemini rivals Copilot by offering generative AI within Google Messages on Android devices. Snapchat leverages ChatGPT to power its AI chatbot, which can respond to Snaps.
