The Copilot Pro upgrades will now close the gap between both chatbots. Microsoft has announced the availability of Copilot Pro, a supercharged subscription version of Copilot, meant for power users who could benefit from advanced help with writing, coding, designing, and more.
The Copilot Pro offerings include a single AI experience across all devices to provide better assistance, priority access to the latest models, including OpenAI’s GPT-4 Turbo, enhanced AI image creation, and the ability to create your own Copilot GPTs.
If you are a Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriber, you can use a Copilot Pro subscription to access Copliot in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote on PC, Mac, and iPad.
The Copilot Pro subscription costs $20 per month per user, which is the same price as ChatGPT’s premium subscription, ChatGPT Plus. Microsoft has also announced that the enterprise offering of Copilot for Microsoft 365 will no longer have a seat minimum, making it possible for businesses of all sizes to take advantage of Copilot’s assistance.
Copilot for Microsoft 365 is available for small businesses with Microsoft 365 Business Premium and Business Standard plans, which can be purchased for between one and 299 seats at $30 per person per month. Other plan updates include the removal of the 300-seat purchase minimum for commercial plans, the availability of Copilot for Office 365 E3 and E5 enterprise customers, and the availability of Copilot for Microsoft 365 for purchase for businesses through a network of Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider partners.
In addition to the Copilot Pro news, the standard Copilot will get a wave of upgrades, starting with Copilot GPTs. A handful of Copliot GPTs will start rolling out today, serving specific purposes for users such as fitness, travel, cooking, and more. Only Copilot Pro users will be able to create their own GPTs.
The Copilot app is now available for Android and iOS, and a Copilot to the Microsoft 365 mobile app for Android and iOS users with a Microsoft account will begin to roll out during the next month.
