The Power of Copilot

Copilot stands out by providing users access to advanced AI models, including GPT-4, and delivering up-to-date information from credible sources. Eligible users, signing in with their work or school accounts (Microsoft Entra ID), benefit from commercial data protection at no additional cost. This ensures that prompts and responses are not stored, offering users privacy and security.


One of Copilot's key strengths lies in its ability to assist users with a variety of everyday tasks. From drafting emails and summarizing PDFs to generating images with DALL-E 3, learning new skills, and answering complex questions, Copilot streamlines and enhances daily workflows.



Confidence in Commercial Data Protection

With Copilot transitioning from preview to general availability, organizations, and users can now adopt it with even greater confidence. Copilot with commercial data protection is now governed by the Universal Commercial License Terms for Online Services, aligning it with other Microsoft commercial online services.


The inclusion of Microsoft's Customer Copyright Commitment (CCC) ensures that customers can leverage Copilot without concerns about copyright claims, enhancing the overall user experience.



Eligibility and Future Plans

Commercial data protection is free for users with eligible Microsoft 365 licenses, including Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Microsoft 365 A3, A5 (faculty only), Microsoft 365 F3, Business Standard, and Business Premium. Microsoft plans to extend the availability of Copilot with commercial data protection to all Entra ID users (excluding sovereign government cloud and student users), with specific timing to be announced in the future.



Renaming and User Experience Changes

To enhance accessibility and streamline the user experience, Bing Chat and Bing Chat Enterprise have been rebranded as Copilot. The new user interface, available at, provides a simplified and intuitive experience. Additional updates and renamings for Copilot with commercial data protection on various endpoints are gradually rolling out to customers.



Seamless Adoption and Transition

For organizations already utilizing Copilot, no further action is required. Users can seamlessly continue their Copilot experience. To facilitate user adoption and assist in transitioning from the old Bing Chat interface to the new Copilot interface, IT administrators can leverage the Copilot adoption kit. This comprehensive kit includes training materials, resources, and ready-to-use email templates, making the transition smooth and user-friendly.


For organizations previously hesitant due to rules against using preview products, Copilot's general availability presents a golden opportunity to introduce this powerful AI companion to your organization. Microsoft Copilot has evolved from a promising preview to a mature, reliable tool, ready to elevate your organization's productivity and creativity.
