Microsoft Designer is almost a masterpiece, already

Why use Designer? Two reasons: AI art and templates. In Designer, you can combine apparently unlimited amounts of AI art with intelligently suggested templates that can generate finished projects in just seconds.

Microsoft announced Microsoft Designer in October, and it's currently locked to a small group of testers in preview mode. PCWorld obtained access via preview codes shared on Twitter, and that's the way Microsoft is slowly adding users—after you download your first creation, you'll be given a code for three additional Designer licenses that you can share with whomever you'd like. Microsoft Designer will eventually be part of Microsoft 365, though the AI art features will apparently be shared with Image Creator, a tool for Microsoft Edge.

Interestingly, though, Designer is very much not an enterprise tool, at least for now. The preview codes being shared do not work with enterprise or education accounts. Instead, only consumer versions of Microsoft accounts can use Microsoft Designer, which feels very much in keeping with the overall theme—this is a consumer tool, first and foremost.

In fact, Designer feels very much like the complement to Microsoft Clipchamp, the fantastic web-based video editor launched earlier this year. Microsoft bought Clipchamp, and it's not clear where Designer's resources were pulled from. But Designer's UI and layout feel reminiscent of Clipchamp

[Got Android? Get Android Intelligence in your inbox and get three new things to try every Friday.] Now, I didn't technically drop my phone, mind you. And I didn't technically break it myself, either. But it was definitely broken. And it happened on my watch.
