Have you ever wished you had a smart assistant that could help you with your everyday tasks, such as writing an email, creating a presentation, or summarizing a meeting? If so, you might be interested in Microsoft 365 Copilot, a new AI-powered productivity tool that uses large language models (LLMs) and integrates your data with the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps and services. It works alongside popular Microsoft 365 apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more.
What is Microsoft 365 Copilot?
Microsoft 365 Copilot is not just another chatbot or voice assistant. It is a whole new way to work with AI that can help you achieve things like never before. Copilot can provide real-time intelligent assistance, enabling users to enhance their creativity, productivity, and skills. Copilot can help you:
– Generate text and images based on your prompts or queries
– Find relevant information from your organization or the web
– Simplify complex information using summaries or paraphrases
– Learn new skills faster using interactive tutorials and feedback
– Reduce tedious tasks using automation and suggestions
How does Microsoft 365 Copilot work?
Microsoft 365 Copilot uses the power of large language models (LLMs), which are trained on billions of words from various sources, such as books, websites, news articles, and more. LLMs can understand natural language and generate coherent and fluent text or images based on your input.
However, LLMs are not enough to provide the best possible assistance. That’s why Microsoft 365 Copilot also integrates your data with the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps and services. The Microsoft Graph is a secure and intelligent cloud platform that connects your data across Microsoft 365, such as emails, chats, documents, calendars, contacts, and more. By combining LLMs with your data, Copilot can provide personalized and contextual assistance that is relevant to your work.
For example, if you want to write an email to a colleague, Copilot can help you by:
– Suggesting a subject line based on the content of your email
– Generating a greeting based on your relationship with the recipient
– Finding relevant information from your previous emails or documents
– Offering feedback on your tone, style, and grammar
– Adding a signature based on your preferences

Once you access Copilot, you can interact with it using natural language conversations. You can ask questions, give commands, provide feedback, or request more information. Copilot will respond with text or images that you can use directly in your work or modify as needed.
