Microsoft officially launches Microsoft 365 Copilot: AI fully embedded in Office

On the evening of 16 March, Microsoft officially announced the launch of Microsoft 365 Copilot. Copilot means co-pilot in civil aviation, and although the Chinese name has not yet been announced, it can actually be understood as an AI assistant, or ChatGPT for Office.

You can let Copilot help you fix Word documents, analyse Excel spreadsheets, quickly generate PPT slides, write an Outlook weekly work report and more through text commands and interaction.

Microsoft says it is currently testing the Copilot feature with customers through both Microsoft 365 and Business Chat, but has not set a specific go-live date.
