Logitech wants you to press its new AI button

Tomorrow’s AI PCs may not just have a Copilot key on their keyboard: Logitech is also introducing its own way of invoking ChatGPT. It’s called Logi AI Prompt Builder and will use a dedicated button on your mouse or keyboard.

The Logi AI Prompt Builder doesn’t just show you a chatbot, it offers you predefined “recipes” to help you launch it too. After assigning an AI button to a Logitech mouse, I could ask it to “rephrase” paragraphs of text, turning them into bullet points, making them shorter and more concise, or tailoring them to a specific word count. Another recipe helped me summarize press releases. And since I pay for ChatGPT Plus, I customized another recipe to generate an image.

Prompt Builder looks like it could be useful. But I had to get a new Logitech mouse to use it, because my personal Logitech M557 that I purchased in 2022 was deemed too old to work with the software. Also, strangely, it only launched when I wasn’t on either of my two browser windows. (I found myself using a ChatGPT tab in my web browser, because that way I wouldn’t have to click out of my browser.)

Logitech will also sell at least one mouse with a dedicated AI button that you won’t need to map to its prompt generator: an AI edition of its M750 mouse with a teal-colored button to launch it instantly. It will only be available in the US and UK for $49.99 or £54.99 respectively. You don’t need the special edition AI mouse, but you do need a Logitech device, as the prompt generator is part of the Logi Options+ software provided by the company.

For now, Logi AI Prompt Builder only works with ChatGPT and only understands English at launch. Logitech said it was working on linking it to other chatbots.

Ultimately, this seems like a way for Logitech to sell more Logitech peripherals, and it probably won’t be the only company with such an idea. When the time comes when all PCs have AI duel buttons, which one will you press to ask your chatbots a question?
