Amusingly, I cannot turn it on as the slider refuses to switch to "on". :lol:


I got a pop-up asking if I wanted it switched on.

Not exactly, it's designed for when you go on holiday. Once you turn it on, the 14 days starts ticking down even if you haven't missed a day. So it's useful for glitches but not if you've forgotten.

Microsoft's AI will be inside Minecraft, and other Xbox, PC games: new Copilot features will search your inventories, offer tips and guides

During the event, Microsoft showcased one of these new integrations. Microsoft Copilot will be embedded directly in video games, starting with Minecraft. Players will be able to use natural language to ask questions like "How do I craft a sword?" and the Copilot will search your chests and inventories for the necessary materials, or guide you to them if you don't have them. It will also explain how to craft the item, and so on, eliminating the need to alt tab and read a website for Minecraft guides
