In addition, now you can access image enhancement options directly in Copilot! Powered by the Designer tool, it offers a selection of different styles which can be applied to your prompt. Pixel Art looks really neat 🔥

It comes with a new animation and an undo option. The feature is not available in all countries yet (I had to use US VPN to give it a try).
