Microsoft’s Edge Copilot AI can’t really summarize every YouTube video

One feature added to Microsoft’s AI Copilot in the Edge browser

Edge browser this week is the ability to generate text summaries of videos.

But Edge Copilot’s time-saving feature is still fairly limited

and only works on pre-processed videos or those with subtitles

Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s CEO of advertising and web services, explained.

As spotted by MSPowerUser, Parakhin writes, “In order for it to work

we need to pre-process the video.

If the video has subtitles - we can always fallback on that

if it does not and we didn’t preprocess it yet - then it won’t work,” in response to a question.
