Unlocking a realm of possibilities, Microsoft is democratizing access to its AI-driven Office capabilities. The previously exclusive Copilot for Microsoft 365, initially launched in November with a hefty commitment of at least 300 users for enterprise customers, is now available for businesses of all sizes without any user minimums. The global head of marketing for search and AI at Microsoft stated that due to high demand from businesses varying in size, they have decided to uncap the minimum limit set at 300 seats. This move allows businesses to opt for the $30 option and integrate Copilot into their Microsoft 365 suite.
In a strategic shift, Microsoft has not only abolished the 300-seat purchase requirement but has also eliminated the necessity for Microsoft 365 plans. This opens up Copilot within Office apps to a broader audience, including Office 365 E3 and E5 customers. Subscribers of Microsoft 365 Business Standard or Business Premium can also embrace Copilot for Microsoft 365 plan at a reasonable cost of $30 per user per month.
Although the entry price remains steep, the availability of Copilot for Microsoft 365 signals a more inclusive approach. Leveraging the power of GPT-4 from OpenAI, Copilot is poised to revolutionize document creation and editing within Microsoft 365 apps. Acting as a collaborative assistant, it resides in a sidebar as a chatbot and can be summoned inline to facilitate text generation in documents, develop PowerPoint presentations from Word documents, and assist with advanced features like PivotTables in Excel.
Copilot’s Versatility: Seamlessly Enhancing Team Communication and Productivity
The scope of Copilot extends beyond individual apps, seamlessly integrating into Teams. This proves especially handy for summarizing meetings or extracting information from email threads in Outlook. Copilot’s prowess extends to drafting email responses with diverse tones and lengths, showcasing its versatility in enhancing communication.
Microsoft now offers three distinct versions of Copilot. The basic Copilot is freely accessible to both consumers and businesses, resembling a chatbot akin to ChatGPT. A step up, the Copilot Pro option, available to consumers for a $20 monthly premium, unlocks AI-powered Copilot features across Office apps and beyond. For businesses seeking enhanced capabilities, Copilot for Microsoft 365 is available at a competitive pricing of $30 per user per month.
