In a blog post Microsoft executive vice president Yusuf Mehdi said it was a “transformative” moment and compared it to the addition of the Windows key nearly 30 years ago.

Microsoft Copilot is an AI assistant that helps you work smarter and faster using the power of Artificial Intelligence.

AI can help you with tasks like writing, summarising, creating presentations, hosting webinars, and more. It also provides enterprise-grade security, privacy, compliance, and responsible AI to protect your data.

 Copilot is available in three plans:

Microsoft Copilot AI in Windows: The first example is this free plan allows you to access Copilot on the taskbar or with the Win+C keyboard shortcut. It can answer simple questions and help you with web and mobile Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook versions.

Bing Chat Enterprise: This paid plan costs £5 per user per month. It adds commercial data protection to Copilot in Windows, so your chat data is not saved.

Microsoft states it has no eyes-on access, and your data is not used to train the large language models (LLM).

Microsoft 365 Copilot AI: This is the most advanced example that costs £30 per user per month. It builds on Bing Chat Enterprise and includes Microsoft 365 Chat, the new hero experience for Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Copilot will solve your most complex problems at work by using your data —all your emails, meetings, chats, documents, and more, plus the web.
