The AI-equipped Microsoft Designer streamlines customers’ creative journeys by providing a simple beginning, enhancing their creative workflows, and, most crucially, assisting them in overcoming creative obstacles.

The blog post from Microsoft highlighted that “Designer” deploys state-of-the-art generative AI technology to assist and empower every person to start working on new ideas, generate distinct graphics instantly and uplevel content, with or without a background in design.

Microsoft claims that the Designer is built to help users at every level of the creative process. Microsoft stated that since the tool’s introduction in October, the AI models had been steadily becoming better, giving consumers more power. Microsoft also includes Designer in the sidebar of Microsoft Edge to help with inspiration when using the internet.

Currently, users can check out the preview of the Microsoft Designer visiting the website or log into their Microsoft account. Edge users can access the Designer preview by clicking the “+” symbol in the sidebar to enable it. This feature is now being rolled out to Edge users.
