Microsoft Designer Launches in Open Preview With New AI-Powered Features

Microsoft Designer, the company’s new AI-powered graphic design app is launching in open preview today. The app has been available in private preview since October, and it lets users create professional-looking graphics, social media posts, and more using the DALL∙E
technology from OpenAI.

“As we originally announced this past October, Microsoft Designer can help quickly create stunning visuals, social media posts, invitations, and more using cutting-edge generative AI technology. Since October, the AI models have steadily improved, and we’ve worked to weave these powerful capabilities throughout the Designer canvas in delightful ways,” Microsoft explained today.

To get started with Microsoft Designer, users can just describe what they want to create using natural language. As an example, if you want to create a social media post about a summer concert series, Microsoft Designer can draft it for you, suggest relevant hashtags, and create a unique image to promote your event.

If you want to publish your post on different social platforms, Microsoft Designer can now automatically resize your posts and images so they’ll be optimized for Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and more. The app is also now capable of creating visuals with animated backgrounds and text transitions.

In addition to the Microsoft Designer web app available on, Designer is also integrated into Microsoft’s Edge sidebar. This lets Edge users create graphics while browsing the web, and Designer Edge can also provide AI-powered suggestions when drafting a post on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Microsoft Designer will be free to use once it goes out of preview, though Microsoft is planning to make some premium features only available for Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscribers.
