What is Recall?

Recall is Microsoft’s new AI-powered search feature supported for Copilot Plus PCs which tracks and remembers user’s moves. With Recall features, users can search and retrieve any image, text, or documents they have surfaced on their PCs. In simple terms, it is an AI-powered search that keeps tabs on websites you've visited,  communications, documents, apps, etc, Users just have to “Recall” which will provide them with a screenshot of relevant visited pages to help give context to the memory. Microsoft said, “With Recall, you can access virtually what you have seen or done on your PC in a way that feels like having a photographic memory.”

How does the Recall feature work on Copilot Plus PCs?

During the event, Microsoft Product Manager Caroline Hernandez showcased a demo of Recall in which she searches for a blue dress which was earlier viewed on Pinterest from the Windows laptop.
