This article explains what Microsoft 365 Copilot is, how it will make work smarter on Microsoft 365 workspace, and how you can deploy it into your daily task for smarter work and enhanced productivity.
What Is Microsoft Copilot?
Copilot is an Artificial Intelligence-powered tool that integrates the capabilities of Larger Language Models (LLMs) with the data in the Microsoft Graph and Microsoft 365 apps using natural language to increase the productivity of M365 as an everyday business tool.
There are two ways that Copilot is integrated into Microsoft 365, and they are outlined below:
- It works with the user in the Microsoft 365 apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more) to unlock productivity, unleash creativity, and uplevel skills.
- It is available as an entirely new experience called Business Chat, which works across the LLM, Microsoft 365 apps, and the user’s data (Calendar, email, chats, documents, meetings, and contacts) to help you use your data across all apps and harmonize and generate multi-backed information for everyday use.
Copilot can generate a status update from emails, morning meetings, and chat threads. Copilot makes the user more creative in Word, more expressive in PowerPoint, more analytical in Excel, more productive in Outlook, and more collaborative in Teams. Copilot primarily changes how people work with AI and how AI works with people.
How Microsoft 365 Copilot Will Help Microsoft 365 Apps Get Smarter
Let’s look at how Copilot has harnessed the power of Artificial intelligence to improve the productivity of Microsoft 365 apps:
Improved Writing in Word
Microsoft 365 Copilot will help you write better. It uses natural language processing and machine learning to help improve all writing done on Microsoft Word.
By using Copilot in Word, you don’t have to start writing from scratch anymore. It helps you by suggesting some content as a starting point to work with, which you can then edit and rewrite to your taste. When developing content for your personal use, it can suggest relevant phrases, grammar corrections, and formatting options in real-time as you type.
This would save the time that you would have spent on writing, researching, and editing your documents and files.
Enhanced Presentations in PowerPoint
Microsoft 365 Copilot makes creating presentations easier and more engaging. It offers design suggestions and layout options and even recommends appropriate images based on the content that follows your presentation. Copilot will help you create visually appealing PowerPoint presentations that are both informative and engaging.
Quicker, More Readable Analysis in Excel
Excel can be a time-consuming and complex tool for analyzing data at times but Copilot makes it easier by suggesting formulas, functions, and even chart types based on the data. This helps you get insights from your data quickly and with consummate ease.
Efficient Email Management in Outlook
Outlook is an essential tool that can be overwhelming at times, but Microsoft 365 Copilot can help you manage your inbox by prioritizing important emails, composing quick replies and even scheduling meetings. This allows you to be more focused on important and productive tasks and reduce your email workload.
Better Collaboration in Teams
Teams is a popular collaboration tool on Microsoft 365 used by teams to communicate and collaborate on projects. With the Copilot feature now made available in Teams, you can obtain a real-time summary of important points during a meeting, including who said what, and areas of agreement and disagreement among participants.
Additionally, Microsoft 365 Copilot can propose actionable items based on the discussion, making it easier to follow up after the meeting.
