With the release of the Copilot application for Android, and after Microsoft’s effort to migrate the name to Bing Chat for centralize all Artificial Intelligence in the aforementioned Copilotwe have decided to compare this application with ChatGPT to see how they differ and when it is worth choosing one over the other.

It is the current technology with the greatest impact and one of the tolls that each smartphone manufacturer will go through: Generative AI is conquering even the most unexpected areas. Make a Gif to congratulate via instant messaging? It’s possible. Also create mobile applications, develop wallpapers from scratch or modify already taken photos. With all this potential, it is logical that companies aim to stand out. And none is doing it like Microsoft.

ChatGPT is more powerful, Copilot more versatile

The applications available for Android offer a similar basic operation and are based on the same language models: o GPT-3.5 either GPT-4; although for the latter you need a subscription to ChatGPT Plus if you want to access it from the ChatGPT app. Therefore, this is a clear advantage of Copilot, which is completely free: allows you to access the most updated model without any type of cost.

Given the Microsoft has invested in Open AIand that said investment is very high, the company has introduced ChatGPT even in the kitchen. In fact, you can try its Copilot, ChatGPT-based generative AI, in up to seven Android apps; with a app intended exclusively for the assistant, known as Copilot. It is the one we are going to use to confront her opponent, ChatGPT; a somewhat strange fight, since they are both family.

With ChatGPT and Copilot you can make queries, create texts, request code and most of the usual generative AI options. You can also create images from scratch in both, but, as with GPT-4, in ChatGPT you can only enable DALL-E 3 if you pay. Copilot is more versatile, hence the title we have given to this section, although the Open AI app is more powerful: it does not have the limitations of Microsoft, the generation is much more creative, of higher quality and you can choose the ratio of the images. The latter if you pay ChatGPT Plus.

After contrasting the results obtained by ChatGPT and Copilot, those of the former tend to be more original and better developed. Your conversational level is higher

If you don’t want to pay to use generative AI, Our recommendation is that you use Copilot– offers many more features without going through the box. In case you prefer to enjoy the maximum capabilities, the ChatGPT app with the subscription is what we recommend: its capabilities are surprising. Additionally, you can create your own programs with the GPTs and you have a conversation mode that is surprising. However, the free Copilot will meet most of your needs.

What you can do without paying for generative AI

  • Start a conversation. Neither ChatGPT nor Copilot prevent you from chatting as if they were people: the tone, the relationship and the cordiality are very successful. And you can personalize them, just ask.
  • Consult data. Both Copilot and ChatGPT allow conversation, although the Microsoft app usually ensures the reliability of its responses to a greater extent (always with searches on Bing). Copilot cannot maintain conversation threads with more than 30 interventions, ChatGPT has no limit for each chat.
  • Generate any type of code. Both one and the other serve the task, always with the aforementioned limits: Copilot has 30 interventions per conversation, so it would fall short if you need extensive development.
  • Make images. But only with Copilot, ChatGPT in its free version does not support the GPT-4 model or DALL-E 3.
  • Create texts. Asking the AI ​​to generate any type of text, no matter what style, is really easy; always with very successful results. Copilot wins here, as it has access to Open AI’s most creative model: GPT-4.
  • Chat with AI out loud. ChatGPT opens the door to talking to an AI that almost looks like a person. For its part, Copilot is not speech-enabled, but it does allow you to give instructions to the voice assistant.

Leveling up: what ChatGPT Plus adds to Copilot

The previous comparison is about both applications in their free form. Copilot has no other alternatives, quite the opposite of ChatGPT: if you pay for the Plus (about 20 euros per month), you get better generative AI with more power for everything you want to ask of it. There is no limit to interventions within the same conversation, you can even resume past chats without the AI ​​losing track of previous messages. Although yes, ChatGPT Plus limits the use of the GPT-4 model: 40 messages every 3 hours.

  • Choosing the aspect ratio in images. Copilot also uses DALL-E 3, but the Open AI app enables the option to choose the ratio. What do you need a wallpaper for your mobile? Ask that the image have a ratio of 9:20 and that’s it. Always selecting the GPT-4 model.
  • Create your own programs or GPTs. It is a very powerful option that can make repetitive tasks easier. Imagine that you need to create a table following a very specific format: you can train ChatGPT to do it in a single step. Or make images with a particular style, create code following a style… GPTs are well worth the subscription.
  • Use others’ GPTs. Just as you can create them, you can also use those of others. Even adding them from the new GPTs store: there are real wonders.
