There’s nothing more frustrating than not finding a photo, email, or file from a few days ago on your device. Scrolling through tons of emails, clicking through all open tabs, and opening files can be time-consuming. Recall wants to solve this.

Microsoft says Recall lets you find anything you’ve seen or done on your PC with a simple search query, and is powered by next-generation large language models, which can understand various content on your PC, such as text and images. and videos. It works in any application so you can search your computer. It is not different from Ask for photos feature that Google recently announced at its developer conference, except it’s only available in Google Photos.

For example, if you’re looking for a blue dress you saw online, you can search for “blue dress” in Windows 11 and it will bring together all the options you saw on your device. If you’re looking for a specific one that was sent to you through a messaging app, you can search for “grandma’s blue sequin lace pantsuit” and Recall will find it for you so you don’t have to scroll through hundreds of messages.

Microsoft says the Recall index is stored locally on the device and will not be used to train any AI models, so the data is private. It’s also customizable, so you can exclude certain websites or apps, allowing you to prevent them from accessing private content.
