Microsoft on Thursday announced its artificial intelligence-powered suite of productivity apps, the Microsoft 365 Copilot. The American software giant said it is currently testing the Copilot in Microsoft 365 with 20 customers, including 8 in Fortune 500 enterprises. The company will expand the access in preview to customers more broadly in the coming months.
“Copilot combines the power of large language models (LLMs) with your business data and context – across all your Microsoft 365 apps, documents, and conversations – to turn your words into the most powerful productivity tool on the planet,” said Colette Stallbaumer, General Manager, Microsoft 365 and Future of Work in a statement.
The Microsoft 365 Copilot is integrated in the productivity apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Teams.
Below is how it will work on each of these apps:

Copilot in Power Platform will help developers of all skill levels accelerate and streamline development with low-code tools with the introduction of two new capabilities within Power Apps and Power Virtual Agents.
Besides Microsoft 365 Copilot, Microsoft announced a new tool called Business Chat. Aimed at enterprises, the tool is said to tap into the power of the Microsoft Graph in real time to bring together data from across documents, presentations, email, calendar, notes and contacts to help summarise chats, write emails, find key dates or even write a plan based on other project files.
