Bringing Copilot to more customers worldwide – across life and work

Copilot is your everyday AI companion, meant to bring the power of generative AI to everyone across work and life. We’re expanding availability and purchase options for individuals and organizations and bringing new value to Copilot Pro subscribers.

Since launching Copilot, it’s been exciting to see our customers bring AI into their lives—both personal and professional—creating stunning images, tackling their overflowing inboxes, jump-starting the writing process, catching up on missed meetings, and so much more. With Copilot, we’re committed to giving everyone the opportunity to supercharge their creativity and productivity. Available across devices, through web or through our Copilot mobile app on iOS or Android, it’s never been easier to get started with Microsoft Copilot.

The expansion of Copilot Pro offerings for individuals

We’re making Copilot in the free Microsoft 365 web apps part of your Copilot Pro subscription—no additional Microsoft 365 subscription required. While a Microsoft 365 Personal or Family subscription is still required to unlock Copilot in the desktop apps for PC and Mac, we’re excited to bring Copilot to Word, Outlook, and more free web apps to additional Pro subscribers.1 We’ll extend this benefit to our free mobile apps as well, including the Microsoft 365 app and Outlook for iOS and Android, in the coming months.

In January, we launched a curated set of Copilot GPTs that can be your personal trainer, travel agent, and sous chef. And now, the ability to build and share custom Copilot GPTs with Microsoft Copilot GPT Builder is available to all Copilot Pro subscribers. Copilot GPT Builder lets you create a personalized Copilot meant to assist you with specific tasks, based on your interests. You can make a Copilot GPT that acts as your career counselor, or a study buddy that helps you to learn a new skill—the possibilities are limitless, and you can do all this from within Copilot.

As part of our mission to empower every person on the planet to achieve more, we are making Copilot Pro available more broadly. Copilot Pro is now available in all 222 countries/regions where Copilot is available. We want all power users, creators, and anyone else to take their Copilot experience to the next level.

And to make it easier for anyone to get started and experience all the features and benefits of Copilot Pro, we’re offering a one-month free trial for those who install our Copilot mobile app on iOS or Android.

With a Copilot Pro subscription, individuals gain the most advanced features and capabilities of Microsoft Copilot to supercharge their Copilot experience. This includes priority access to top-of-the-line models, AI capabilities in Microsoft 365 apps (a Microsoft 365 Personal or Family subscription is required to access Copilot in desktop apps), better image generation and editing capabilities, and access to Microsoft Copilot GPT Builder.

Copilot for Microsoft 365: Available to organizations of all sizes

While Copilot Pro is our best experience for individuals, Copilot for Microsoft 365 is our best experience for organizations. To empower every organization to become AI-powered, we’re making Copilot for Microsoft 365 available to businesses of all types and sizes—including frontline worker plans. Customers that have Microsoft 365 F3 and F1, Office 365 E1, Business Basic, and more will be eligible to purchase Copilot for Microsoft 365 in the coming weeks.2 That’s in addition to previously announced availability on Microsoft 365 E3 and E5, Office 365 E3 and E5, Business Standard, and Business Premium plans.

Copilot for Microsoft 365 works across your entire universe of data at work and is integrated into the Microsoft 365 apps millions of people use every day—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and more—and the web. And with Copilot Studio, you can customize Copilot for Microsoft 365 using your business data or build your own copilot experiences. It’s built on the comprehensive approach of Microsoft to enterprise-grade security, privacy, identity, and compliance, and backed by the Microsoft Customer Copyright Commitment. 40% of the Fortune 100 have used Copilot for Microsoft 365 via our Early Access Program.3 That means tens of thousands of people at companies like Visa, BP, Honda, and Pfizer are already using Copilot to work in a new AI-powered way. As we said in January, we’ve seen faster adoption of Copilot for Microsoft 365 than our E3 or E5 suites.
