Microsoft 365 Copilot is an artificial intelligence (AI) assistant that helps you work smarter in Microsoft 365 apps. It can help you create documents, presentations, spreadsheets, emails, chats, meetings, and more. Microsoft 365 Copilot is based on Bing Chat Enterprise but with more advanced features.
Made available to enterprise customers 1 November 2023 – Microsoft 365 Copilot is developed to streamline repetitive tasks, minimize manual workloads, and enhance productivity throughout various aspects of your business. By combining the power of large language models (LLMs) with your data in the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 app applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and others - it turns your words into the most powerful productivity tool on the planet. By delivering real-time intelligent assistance, Microsoft 365 Copilot empowers users to elevate their creativity, productivity, and skill set.
For example, using the Copilot in MS Teams helps you run effective meetings, get up to speed, organize key discussion points, and summarize actions. Another example is that Copilot can work with you in cleaning your Outlook inbox and messages, summarizing emails missed, drafting a response email, or creating an invitation. And, if you have ever felt low on creativity when using PowerPoint, you can use Copilot for inspiration in creating a slide deck or a presentation directly from your written documents, including graphics, speaker notes, and sources.
Understanding the difference between Microsoft Copilot and Microsoft 365 Copilot
Microsoft Copilot is a general-purpose AI assistant that can help you with various tasks across different platforms and domains. Microsoft 365 Copilot is a specialized AI assistant that can help you work smarter in specific Microsoft 365 apps and scenarios. Both of them are powered by LLMs that can understand natural language and generate relevant responses.
The LLMs used for Microsoft 365 Copilot are hosted in the Microsoft Cloud and are not trained on your organizational data. Copilot automatically inherits your organization’s security, compliance, and privacy policies set in Microsoft 365.
