What is Microsoft 365 Copilot?
Microsoft Copilot is an add-on tool complementary to the Microsoft 365 suite. You can add Copilot to any existing user as long as they have Business Standard, Business Premium or an E3 or E5 license.
When Microsoft bought a $10bn, 49% stake in OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, it unlocked the possibility to embed prompt-style queries to all its productivity applications (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Teams, Outlook, etc.).

Using “prompts”, like you would in Chat GPT. Copilot users can now ask any Microsoft tool to help them out with a query, design idea, or data analysis. Once you have the license, the Copilot companion appears in the top sidebar across the Microsoft application stack. Here, you can upload documents for data analysis, extraction, and visualisation. It’s also possible to create summaries of inbound communications and even ask Copilot to create email responses and generate proposals off the back of meetings.
