  • Microsoft 365 Copilot is now open to early access, bringing the power of generative AI to Microsoft’s office suite.

    Microsoft has been leveraging its access to OpenAI’s ChatGPT AI across its services and platforms. The company introduced its AI-powered Copilot in Microsoft Dynamics 365, making it the first CRM/ERP AI copilot on the market.

    The company is following up on that success with Microsoft 365 Copilot early access, giving even more users the ability to use and benefit from Microsoft’s AI investment.

    “This new generation of AI will remove the drudgery of work and unleash creativity,” said Satya Nadella, chairman and CEO, Microsoft. “There’s an enormous opportunity for AI-powered tools to help alleviate digital debt, build AI aptitude and empower employees.”

    “The pace and volume of work have increased exponentially and are outpacing humans’ ability to keep up,” said Jared Spataro, CVP, Modern Work and Business Applications. “In a world where creativity is the new productivity, digital debt is more than an inconvenience — it’s a threat to innovation. Next-generation AI will lift the weight of work and free us all to focus on the work that matters.”

    Microsoft is rolling out Copilot in Whiteboard, giving users the ability to use natural language to ask the AI to generate ideas and designs.

    Powerpoint is also getting an upgrade, with OpenAI’s DALL-E image generator integrated with Copilot in Powerpoint. Users will be able to use the feature to generate images for their presentations.

    Copilot in Outlook will tap into the power of AI to help users generate emails and communicate more effectively.

    Copilot in OneNote will help users create lists, organize their ideas, get the most out of the note-taking app.

    Copilot in Viva Learning will help users create personalized learning courses.

    “The potential of Microsoft 365 Copilot is undeniable, and it’s energizing to explore the possibilities as we couple the ingenuity of our people with the functionality of the tool,” said Guy Moore, Workforce Enablement Lead, Chevron. “Early access has given us visibility into how it can further streamline processes, speed insights, spark ideas, enhance productivity and evolve the way we work. We’re proud to team with Microsoft as we continue to achieve new levels of innovation and advance the future of energy.”
