What is Copilot? Here’s Everything You Must Know About It

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella endorsed Copilot and predicted that it would “fundamentally revolutionise the way we work and ignite a new era of productivity development.”

Copilot, a digital assistant driven by artificial intelligence (AI), was unveiled earlier this week by Microsoft. According to CEO Satya Nadella, Copilot will “fundamentally revolutionize the way we work and enable a new wave of productivity development.”

“Today represents the next significant development in our relationship with computing…With the help of our new copilot, we’re providing people more control over technology and increasing accessibility using the most pervasive interface possible: natural language,” according to Nadella.

What is Copilot?

According to the tech giant, Copilot combines data from a user’s Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps with large language models (LLMs). This makes words “the most potent productivity tool on the earth,” as the saying goes.

Microsoft has integrated Copilot into numerous frequently used applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, and more. One can choose what to keep, amend, or dismiss with this aid.


Microsoft claims that Copilot is now being tested for input from a small set of users and will be made available to all 365 apps in the coming months. The company claims that the update will increase staff productivity by freeing up time that would typically be spent in email or by making it simpler for them to look for trends in Excel.

Google, a direct rival of Microsoft, disclosed that it will soon integrate generative AI methods into its Workspace products, including Google Documents, Gmail, and Slides. According to Google, its “trusted testers on a rolling basis throughout the year” would have access to the capabilities of the AI approaches.

The copilot’s features are to unleash creativity, boost productivity, and develop useful skills.

Based on decades of study, Responsible AI Standard, and Microsoft’s current commitments to data security and privacy in the enterprise, Microsoft has developed Microsoft 365 Copilot. The language models used by Copilot are not trained on client content or specific requests. Enterprise-ready AI will be distributed at scale by Microsoft 365 Copilot.

Microsoft introduced Dynamics 365 Copilot earlier this month as the first AI Copilot in both CRM and ERP, bringing next-generation AI to every business sector. All of the Microsoft productivity products, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, Microsoft Viva, Power Platform, and more, will now support Copilot. Information on costs and licences will be released soon. A small number of users are already using Microsoft 365 Copilot in order to get the crucial feedback needed to enhance these models as they scale.
