Microsoft Copilot Pro with GPT-4 Turbo launched for $20 per month
Microsoft has announced a new subscription called Copilot Pro for individual users. It will offer AI-powered features similar to those that are available in Copilot Pro for Microsoft 365.
The Redmond company introduced Bing Chat about a year ago, before rebranding it to Copilot. The AI-chatbot, which debuted as an assistant for web search. It rose to fame rapidly thanks to the Bing mobile apps, and the chatbot was added to Skype and SwiftKey. Copilot eventually evolved into a desktop app which was released for Windows 11 and Windows 10. Microsoft is going all in with AI, its new keyboard design replaces the menu key with a new Copilot key.
Copilot Pro with GPT-4 Turbo launches today
Microsoft brought Copilot to its office suite, specifically, for Microsoft Office 365 users, allowing them to use the AI to generate content to assist them in writing letters, draft mails, notes, essays, summarize content, coding, and other creative purposes, right from within Office apps. It also supports voice input.
Copilot Pro offers the same experience, but is designed for end users. You will need a Microsoft Office 365 subscription (Personal or Family) to access the AI-powered features in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. Microsoft Copilot Pro is available across devices on PC via Bing, Edge, Start, Mac, iPad, and on the web. The AI-assistant is also coming soon to phones.
Don't have an Office 365 subscription? You can still get Copilot Pro to get priority access to OpenAI's GPT-4 Turbo. The subscription will allow users to access the new language model even during peak times with faster performance. The Redmond company says it will soon bring an option to toggle between various language models.
Copilot Pro includes support for Image Creator from Designer (formerly called Bing Image Creator) that you can use to generate images using text commands. Microsoft says that it is faster (than the free tier), and supports 100 boosts (number of turns for image generation) per day with detailed image quality. Users will be able to customize the image with options such as selecting a landscape format.
