Microsoft has just rolled out a upgrade for its smart computer assistant, Copilot. They’re calling it Copilot Pro, and it’s like a VIP pass for people who want the coolest AI features right at their fingertips. In a blog post on Monday (Jan. 15), Microsoft spilled the beans on this new subscription that promises to make your AI experience smoother and more awesome across all your gadgets.
So, what’s the big deal with Copilot Pro? Well, it’s got some nifty perks. If you’re into Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote, Copilot Pro hooks you up with some extra goodies. If you’re a subscriber to Microsoft 365 Personal or Family, you get special access.
But wait, there’s more! Subscribers also get to be the cool kids in the AI world with priority access to the latest models, starting with the super cool-sounding GPT-4 Turbo from OpenAI. And there’s this new thing called Image Creator from Designer. It makes creating images faster and fancier, with some extra spice in the quality department.
In the near future, Copilot Pro users will have the power to build their very own customized Copilot GPT. It’s like having your own personal AI assistant tailor-made just for you.
But Microsoft isn’t leaving out the businesses. They’re spreading the Copilot love to all kinds of businesses, big or small. No need to buy a gazillion seats – you can get as few as one seat for $30 a month per person. That’s pretty sweet. And they’re tossing out the 300-seat minimum for the commercial plans.
Microsoft is also teaming up with their Cloud Solution Provider partners to help businesses become AI-powered. It’s like they’re saying, “Hey, let’s make the world more AI-friendly together!”
And there’s even more! Copilot is getting some extra cool features. They’re rolling out something called Copilot GPTs, which lets you boss around Copilot and make it do what you want on specific topics. It’s like teaching your AI buddy some new tricks.
Oh, and did I mention the Copilot mobile app? Yup, there’s an app for that! It works on Android and iOS, giving you all the Copilot goodness on your phone. You can even use it to cook up some images with GPT-4 and Dall-E 3. And if you’re a Microsoft 365 mobile app user, Copilot is sliding right into your app, making things super easy.
Just in case you missed it, Microsoft launched Copilot in September, saying it’s the next big thing in how we deal with technology. And guess what? It might even be a cash cow, with predictions that it could bring in over $10 billion every year by 2026 for Microsoft. Talk about a tech powerhouse!
