Notepad dobija nove AI mogućnosti za pisanje – šta to znači za korisnike?

Microsoft has announced plans to enhance Notepad, one of the oldest applications within the MS Windows operating system, with additional AI capabilities. This change comes after the discontinuation of the WordPad text processor, aiming to provide users with additional artificial intelligence assistance for writing text.

In a screenshot of the Windows 11 test version of Notepad, shared on the social network X, a new menu called “Cowriter” can be seen. This menu offers users new options such as “Rewrite,” “Make shorter,” “Make longer,” “Change tone,” and “Change format.” It is evident that Microsoft aims to provide users with enhanced AI support for text writing.

Although the “Cowriter” option is not yet available according to the screenshot, following the logic of introducing AI features to other applications, it can be expected to become available for testing to Windows Insider Program users in the near future.

This is not the first time Microsoft has added AI capabilities to its applications. In September 2023, a generative AI add-on was introduced for the Paint application in Windows 11, named “Cocreator.” This add-on allows users to input a textual description upon which Paint generates an image.

It remains to be seen how users will react to the increased presence of artificial intelligence in Notepad, considering that many have used it precisely because of its simplicity. Microsoft will likely select participants from the Windows Insider Program to test Cowriter before officially releasing these new options.
