Microsoft has announced that its OpenAI’s DALL-E-powered AI image generator is now available on desktops for Edge users around the world.
The company introduced the feature to the new Bing and Edge preview in March 2023.
This feature will help the users to create images which do not exist yet, right from the Microsoft Edge sidebar, the company stated.
“If you’ve ever found yourself in need of a very specific vision for a social post or even a PowerPoint, Image Creator can help you find exactly what you need,” Microsoft said in a blog post.
To use the feature, users need to simply navigate to the sidebar on the right side of their browser, and then tap on the Image Creator icon, enter their prompt, and then they will see four different image options to choose from.
After selecting the one that fits their needs, they can download it and add to their document or upload it to social media.
When using Image Creator in Microsoft Edge for the first time, they will need to enable it in the Edge sidebar by clicking the “+” icon and turning on the toggle key for Image Creator, the company explained.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has started testing the new block feature with Edge testers in the Canary channel, allowing users to fully block web videos from automatically playing in the Edge browser.
“We have heard your requests for strict blocking of media autoplay, and we are excited to share that it is now available!
Edge Canary now has a new autoplay setting, Block, this allows you to stop all media on a site from automatically playing,” Microsoft said.
