Today, we are excited to introduce Microsoft 365 Copilot, an AI-powered assistant that is set to revolutionize the way we work. Copilot is designed to integrate seamlessly with your favorite Microsoft 365 apps, taking your productivity to new heights. Let’s dive into the world of Copilot and explore how it can help you work smarter, not harder.

How does Microsoft 365 Copilot work?

Microsoft 365 Copilot combines the power of large language models (LLMs) with your data from the Microsoft Graph, which includes your calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings, and more. It integrates with Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Teams to help you unleash your creativity, unlock productivity, and uplevel your skills.

Some of the ways Copilot can enhance your work experience include:

  1. Copilot in Word: With simple prompts, Copilot can draft documents, summarize text, and rewrite sections to make them more concise. It can also suggest different tones and help improve your writing with suggestions that strengthen your arguments or smooth inconsistencies.

  2. Copilot in Excel: Copilot assists in analyzing and exploring your data by answering questions in natural language and generating models based on your queries. It can identify trends, create visualizations, and provide recommendations for different outcomes.

  3. Copilot in PowerPoint: Copilot can transform your ideas into visually stunning presentations, complete with speaker notes and sources. It can condense lengthy presentations and adjust layouts, reformat text, and time animations with natural language commands.

  4. Copilot in Outlook: Copilot helps you manage your inbox more efficiently by summarizing lengthy email threads and drafting responses with simple prompts. It can also adjust the tone or length of your messages as needed.

  5. Copilot in Teams: Copilot makes collaboration easier by summarizing meetings, organizing key discussion points, and providing suggested next steps. It can also answer specific questions or catch you up on anything you’ve missed in your chat.

Introducing Business Chat

Microsoft is also introducing Business Chat, a new experience that works across all your data and apps. Business Chat uses the Microsoft Graph to bring together data from various sources, making collaboration more efficient and helping you focus on your most important work. Preview customers can access Business Chat in Microsoft Teams.

Data Security and Privacy

Microsoft 365 Copilot is designed with enterprise needs in mind and is guided by Microsoft’s AI principles and Responsible AI Standard. It builds on existing commitments to data security and privacy in the enterprise, ensuring that Copilot large language models are not trained on your tenant data.
