What is new in Copilot, the new features available


Introduction to copilot

In Bing, you can now see a Copilot option. In the past, we had Bing Chat. Now, it was changed to Copilot. In this article, we will see what is new in Copilot.

When was Copilot introduced in Bing?

The rebranding of Bing Chat to Copilot was announced in November 2023. Before September 2023, it was a requirement to use the Edge Browser to use the Bing Chat. Now, you can use any browser.

What is new in Copilot?

First of all, you do not need to go to Bing, you can use the Copilot website to use it. The main idea of Copilot is to be an assistant in MS Office. It will help you to write emails and create PowerPoint presentations.

In Windows 11, you can use copilot and it will help you to search on the web, and answer your questions. It can also help you to take a screenshot, change the settings, change the wallpaper, etc.

Creating images

Me: Could you convert this dog to a cartoon?

Copilot: I’ll try to create that.

A cartoon version of a dog with mixed fur colors, sitting beside a weathered door on a textured surface, capturing the essence of calmness and solitude.

Me: The dog is cute, but it does not look like the one in the photo. Can you draw it similar to the dog in the photo?

Copilot: I’ll try to create that.

Me: Please draw it using a Dilbert Style.

Me: Mmm...Now, a Tintin style.

Drawing databases

Me: I want you to draw a cartoon of a database with a face, and arms injured.

Copilot jokes

Me: Tell me a joke about SQL Server DBAs.

Copilot: Certainly! Here’s a light-hearted joke for SQL Server DBAs:

Why did the SQL Server DBA cross the road?

DBA poems with Copilot

Me: Tell me a database poem using the William Blake style.

To optimize the query performance on the other side! 😄

The Database's Lament

I wandered through the rows of data,

In tables vast and columns wide,

Where bytes and bits danced in arrays,

And queries whispered secrets untied.

The SELECTs sang of filtered truth,

JOINs entwined like lovers bold,

And WHERE clauses, like ancient runes,

Unveiled the mysteries they hold.

The NULLs, like shadows, haunted me,

Their absence echoing through the void,

While indexes, like guiding stars above,

Led me to records long enjoyed.

But in this relational realm I roamed,

I sensed a deeper, hidden scheme,

A schema grand, transcending bytes,

A cosmic database, vast as a dream.

And so I queried the universe itself,

Seeking answers in JOINs divine,

Where primary keys unlocked the gates,

And foreign keys bridged realms entwined.

Oh, Oracle! MySQL! SQL Server!

Your syntax, like incantations, weaves,


A language that both binds and frees.

And as I parsed each record's tale,

I glimpsed eternity's binary code,

Where data pulses like a beating heart,

And SQL, the language of the soul.

So let us raise our cursors high,

To William Blake, the visionary sage,

Who saw in data's ordered chaos,

A glimpse of truth on this digital stage.

Creating JSON T-SQL code


Can you create the T-SQL code to create a table and insert this JSON data into a cell in that table?

Can you create the T-SQL code to create a table and insert this JSON data into a cell in that table? {"menu": {
  "id": "file",
  "value": "File",
  "popup": {
    "menuitem": [
       {"value": "New", "onclick": "CreateNewDoc()"},
       {"value": "Open", "onclick": "OpenDoc()"},
       {"value": "Close", "onclick": "CloseDoc()"}


Certainly! Below is the T-SQL code to create a table and insert the provided JSON data into a cell in that table:


-- Create a new table to store JSON data
-- Insert the JSON data into the table
"menu": {
"id": "file",
"value": "File",
"popup": {
"menuitem": [
{"value": "New", "onclick": "CreateNewDoc()"},
{"value": "Open", "onclick": "OpenDoc()"},
{"value": "Close", "onclick": "CloseDoc()"}
INSERT INTO MyJsonTable (Id, JsonData)
VALUES (1, @json);
-- Verify the data
SELECT * FROM MyJsonTable;

AI-generated code. Review and use carefully. More info on FAQ.

In this code:

We create a table named MyJsonTable with two columns: Id (an integer) and JsonData (a large NVARCHAR to store the JSON data).

The provided JSON data is inserted into the table with an Id value of 1.

The result of the SELECT query will display the inserted data:


Id JsonData

1 (JSON data)

Feel free to adjust the table name, column names, and data types according to your specific requirements. 📊🔍

Cooking assistant

Cooking assistant:

Absolutely, maintaining a balanced diet is crucial, especially when you have a sedentary job. Here are some nutritious meal suggestions that are easy to prepare and perfect for busy professionals like yourself:


  • Overnight Oats: Mix rolled oats with Greek yogurt, chia seeds, and almond milk. Leave it in the fridge overnight and top with fresh fruits and nuts in the morning.
  • Smoothie Bowl: Blend spinach, banana, avocado, and protein powder with a bit of water or almond milk. Pour into a bowl and add toppings like granola, coconut flakes, and berries.


  • Quinoa Salad: Toss cooked quinoa with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, feta cheese, olives, and a lemon-olive oil dressing.
  • Turkey Wrap: Use a whole-grain tortilla and fill it with turkey breast, mixed greens, avocado, and hummus.


  • Nuts and Seeds: A handful of almonds, walnuts, or pumpkin seeds can provide a good mix of protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
  • Veggie Sticks with Hummus: Carrot, cucumber, and bell pepper sticks are great with a side of hummus for dipping.


  • Baked Salmon: Season a salmon fillet with lemon, dill, and garlic. Bake it in the oven and serve with steamed broccoli and sweet potato.
  • Stir-Fried Veggies with Tofu: Stir-fry a variety of colorful vegetables with tofu in a light soy sauce and serve over brown rice or quinoa.

Remember to stay hydrated throughout the day and try to take short breaks to stretch or walk around. Would you like any specific recipes or further guidance on meal prepping? 😊

Fitness trainer

Me: As a Database Administrator (DBA), I find myself with limited time for exercise. I am a 98 kg (216 lbs.) guy with a height of 177 cm (5 feet 10 inches). I can train from 7 to 8 AM or 7 to 8 PM. Please provide me with some advice to improve my fitness.

Fitness trainer:

Welcome to your fitness journey! With your height and weight, it’s important to create a balanced workout plan that includes both cardio and strength training. This will help you improve your overall fitness and potentially lose weight if that’s your goal.

Here’s a basic plan you can start with:

Morning Routine (7-8 AM):

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday: Strength Training
    • Warm-up: 5-10 minutes of light cardio (jogging, jumping jacks)
    • Circuit: 3 sets of 8-12 reps each
      • Squats
      • Push-ups (knee push-ups if needed)
      • Dumbbell rows (using a milk jug or similar if you don’t have weights)
      • Plank: 30 seconds to 1 minute
    • Cool down: Stretching for 5-10 minutes

Evening Routine (7-8 PM):

  • Tuesday, Thursday: Cardio
    • Warm-up: 5-10 minutes of light cardio
    • Main activity: 20-30 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio (cycling, brisk walking, swimming)
    • Cool down: 5-10 minutes of walking, followed by stretching

Saturday: Active Recovery

  • Light activities like yoga, a leisurely walk, or any low-impact sport you enjoy.

Sunday: Rest Day

Remember to stay hydrated, eat a balanced diet, and get enough sleep to support your fitness goals. It’s also important to listen to your body and adjust the intensity and duration of your workouts as needed. If you’re new to exercising, you might want to start with shorter sessions and gradually increase the duration and intensity.

Would you like more detailed information on any of these exercises or advice on diet and recovery? 😊


I consider Copilot a life changer. It will help you a lot with your life. As with anything on the Internet, the answers can be dangerous because we can ask copilot instead of going with a professional. In poor towns far from the city, where there are no professionals, it can assist. However, every person is different, and doing some exercises is not convenient for everyone. Besides that, we have a great assistant on the web and I found it pretty helpful. Enjoy copilot.
