Description and Analysis
AI Copilot Pro is a powerful tool designed specifically for the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Similar to ChatGPT, it offers specialized assistance across various Microsoft 365 applications. By leveraging Copilot, you can streamline your workflow and improve productivity. If you want to learn more about Copilot's capabilities, you can find videos on it within this channel or simply search for "Microsoft Copilot" to explore it yourself. While Copilot offers some free features, to unlock the full potential of Copilot Pro, you will need to sign in using your Microsoft login and follow the checkout process. The subscription fee for Copilot Pro is $20 per month, providing you with advanced features and the ability to engage in chats and create images with Copilot.
Including Copilot in Your User Interface
To have Copilot readily available in your front-facing user interface, you need to add another subscription to your account. This subscription is either the Microsoft 365 Personal or the Microsoft 365 Family plan. By subscribing to either of these plans, you gain access to the entire suite of Microsoft 365 applications along with the ability to use Copilot. The cost for this additional subscription is approximately $7 per month, on top of the $20 for Copilot Pro. Therefore, to enjoy the complete library of Microsoft 365 applications and utilize Copilot, you will be looking at a monthly cost of $27.
Activating the Reference File Feature
If you are specifically interested in the reference file feature, which allows you to reference other data within your Microsoft 365 ecosystem, you will need the Microsoft 365 Business Standard plan. This plan, priced at $12.50 per user per month, provides access to additional features, including referencing files. To activate this plan, navigate to your business account settings, search for Copilot under the products, and select the Microsoft 365 Business Standard plan. However, it's worth noting that this plan comes at a higher cost, amounting to approximately $372 per year. In comparison, the $27 monthly subscription seems more attractive.
