Excitement Builds for Microsoft’s Launch of ChatGPT Features to the Public.
Microsoft has unveiled Copilot, a new AI-powered tool that’s designed to make it easier to do your job. This ChatGPT-powered system will upgrade the existing suite of Microsoft 365 applications. Can’t make your next Teams meeting? An AI can go in your place. It won’t make suggestions on your behalf, but it will take notes and can later give you a summary of what was discussed. Or, if you need help creating a report, Copilot can help draft the piece and convert data from other files for use in the report. It will even help make everything look nice, with images and splashes of color.Copilot also sounds like it has the potential to revolutionize more than just business processes. It could give us a hand at home too.The most obvious is school projects. While we don’t recommend getting an AI to do all the work for you, there are ways it could help you that aren’t cheating. It could provide prompts that help inspire your essays – though you still have to do the writing. You could have a few ideas of where to start and how to expand your work. If you’ve made a Powerpoint presentation, you could ask Copilot to liven it up with images and animations. The content is yours, but the AI tool has given it a fresh coat of paint.Another great personal use case is party planning, and this was shown off during Microsoft’s presentation. Copilot can help you create invites based on prompts you provide, including party details and even the tone of the invite. You can then quickly edit and send off to your guests. You can then use Word and more prompts to help you prepare a standout speech, or rely on AI-infused Excel to help ensure you aren’t blowing your whole budget on a massive cake before you’ve accounted for decorations and party favors.(Image credit: Microsoft)
We’ll be flying solo a while longer
Unfortunately, it sounds like we won’t get a consumer-focused version of copilot for a while. During the presentation, Microsft’s Chief Scientist, Jaime Teevan, explained that Copilot’s rollout is “starting with a small number of customers.” Pricing and licensing details aren’t yet public, but it sounds like only a handful of businesses will get access to Copilot at launch, so it’s unlikely that regular folk will be able to take advantage of the new AI.sThat said, we expect Copilot will make it to more Microsoft systems in the not-too-distant future. These AI abilities could give Microsoft’s 365 applications a huge boost over rivals like Google Workspace apps (Drive, Docs, Gmail, etc) and Apple’s selection of apps (Pages, Mail, Keynote, etc). Microsoft will likely want to make them widely available to convince people to use its services at home and at work.When Copilot or a similar service rolls out to a wider audience, we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop.

We can’t wait for Microsoft’s new ChatGPT features to roll out to everyone.
