Celebrating 10 Years as a Microsoft MVP

Back from my vacation, I am thrilled to share that I have been awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for the 10th consecutive year. In addition to being recognized as an expert within Teams, I am have also been recognized as an expert with Microsoft Copilot. This means a lot to me.  Being an MVP has been an incredibly rewarding journey, both personally and professionally. It has provided me with countless opportunities to grow, learn, and connect with like-minded professionals who share a passion for technology and innovation.  The award is not just a title; it's a testament to the hard work, dedication, and contributions to the tech community. It's a privilege to be part of such an esteemed group of individuals who share the same love for technology, and sharing their knowledge about it.  As I reflect on the past decade, I am thankful for the experiences and knowledge I've gained. This recognition motivates me to continue sharing my expertise, mentor

Microsoft Copilot is all around...

 

As the debut of Microsoft 365 Copilot approaches, there are a lot of Copilot features set to be introduced across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Here are a few noteworthy additions:

Microsoft has unveiled a series of innovative features in the upcoming releases of Windows 11, some of them are already released, and some are currently available in preview builds. The Windows 11 Copilot, conveniently located in the taskbar, eliminates the need to open your Edge browser. It is seamlessly integrated with Bing Enterprise Chat (BEC) and ChatGPT, making it really easy to get started on your creative journey.

Included in Windows 11 is the new co-creator feature in Paint. This feature, also in preview, is integrated with DALL-E and provides a swift and straightforward method for creating illustrations and images. If you possess a knack for crafting descriptions, you can generate quite impressive imagery.

Another AI-powered feature is image creation directly from BEC. This feature, also integrated with DALL-E, offers users an incredibly quick and easy way to create illustrations and images to complement their texts or presentations.

For those who frequently use mobile devices, you may have noticed the release of BEC into the Bing app on mobile devices. One particularly appealing aspect of this new integration is the ability to simply click on the app widget and begin asking questions.

And this is just the beginning. I can't wait to see all the new features and use cases when Microsoft 365 Copilot is released next month.

PS: Some of the features are only available in certain regions at the moment. They will roll out globally in a gradual manner. You can read all about the new releases in this blogpost.
