Both companies began test rounds with “trusted users” in the United States, and Although Google stressed that it expects to introduce the new applications in a few months, Microsoft did not announce a date for the launch of the new versions of Word (word processor), Excel (spreadsheets), PowerPoint (presentations) and Outlook (email). ).

For its part, PowerPoint will have access to the photos you have in the OneDrive service (cloud storage) or on your computer to design and assemble presentations. The artificial intelligence component will also be able to modify the images used, as well as create and/or modify audio and video files, as well as animate the presentation.

Microsoft has licenses to integrate ChatGPT into its products, something it has already done in the Windows 11 operating system, the Internet communications app Skype, and its Bing search engine.
