Introducing Copilot Pro: A Powerful AI Tool for Microsoft 365 Apps

Microsoft introduced its AI-powered features in Office for businesses back in November, but that wasn't a halt for the developers; in fact, it marked the beginning of advanced and improved cross-platform AI assistance in the coming years. Within just two months, Microsoft is already offering its Copilot services to consumers as a monthly subscription, available on Windows, Android, iOS, and the web—you name it! For $20, the company claims to enhance the user experience with improved performance, access to OpenAI’s GPT-4 Turbo, AI integration inside the Office suite, and the ability to build your personal Copilot GPT.

Why Upgrade to Copilot Pro?

We know that Microsoft Copilot, also known as Bing Chat, excels in assisting with web searches, content creation, answering questions, and generating images. The question arises: Is it truly worthwhile to invest in the additional features offered by the Pro version?

Microsoft Copilot will continue to be available as a free service, with the Pro version presenting itself as an optional subscription providing extra perks. Importantly, the release of the Pro version will not impose any limits on the free service or hinder users in any manner.

While the free version is adequate for those who wish to maintain independence and abstain from participating in the widespread AI race, there are certain areas where it is unavailable, such as in the Office suite. On the other hand, Copilot Pro offers subscribers priority access during peak times, faster performance rates, and the ability to generate more images per day.

But that's not all! Let's explore some more advantages of investing those extra bucks for the ultimate AI-powered experience.

  • A unified AI experience seamlessly connects across all your devices, seamlessly bridging the context from the web to your PC and across all apps, delivering the appropriate skills precisely when you need them.
  • For Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscribers, Copilot is accessible in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote across all their devices, including PC, Mac, and iPad.
  • Ability to create your unique Copilot GPT, tailoring it to a specific subject of your choice.
  • Access to the latest models, such as OpenAI's GPT-4 Turbo, is also provided. Soon, you'll have the flexibility to toggle between models, allowing you to optimize your experience according to your preferences.
  • The Integrated Image Creator (formerly Bing Image Creator) now boasts improved capabilities for enhanced image quality, a landscape image format, and increased speed, offering 100 boosts per day.

Copilot on Microsoft 365

For Microsoft 365 Personal or Home subscribers, an additional $20 monthly subscription unlocks all the perks that Copilot offers within Office apps. In the Office suite, Copilot goes beyond being a mere tool for content creation; it can also guide you on using specific functions within the apps. Whether you're uncertain about creating a formula in Excel or formatting your Word document, Copilot will assist you or even handle it for you.

In PowerPoint, Copilot enables the generation of entire slide decks. In Word, you can leverage AI assistance to rephrase paragraphs, summarize documents, or generate texts. In Outlook, it aids in responding to emails or composing new ones. In Excel, Copilot assists in data analysis, graph generation, and more. In OneNote, it helps draft ideas, plans, and even format and organize information within your Notebooks.

However, the feature where Copilot can generate a PowerPoint deck based on a Word document is currently exclusive to businesses. This means it will take some time for developers to make it available to the general public since the consumer version is yet to be powered by Microsoft's Graph technology.
