Microsoft 365’s AI
Microsoft’s announcement of their new AI-powered Copilot feature for Microsoft 365 is a big deal. Here’s why.
First, some background. Copilot is basically an AI assistant that helps you with tasks within Office apps like Word, Excel, and Outlook. Think of it like an omniscient version of Clippy, Microsoft’s old Office helper.
Copilot has been in development for a while, but it’s only now that Microsoft is making it available to the general public. And they’re doing so with a few key features that make it worth your while.
To start, Copilot can help you with tasks like formatting text and inserting images into your documents. It’ll also help you with research by finding relevant information from the internet and adding it to your document.
But the real selling point of Copilot is its ability to help you with email. Copilot can read your emails and provide suggestions for replies. It can also help you keep track of your email conversations by summarizing them for you.
This is all very impressive, but it’s also important to remember thatCopilot is still in its early stages. Microsoft is clear that the feature is still in beta and that it will continue to evolve over time.
That said, if you’re a Office user, Copilot is definitely worth checking out. It has the potential to be a real game-changer when it comes to productivity.
