What are Microsoft's different Copilots? Here's what they are and how you can use them

At an overall level, Microsoft's Copilot represents a breakthrough technology in artificial intelligence (AI). Microsoft has launched several Copilots with different capabilities for different purposes and strives to make the Copilot technology available to all users.

“We are the Copilot company,” expressed Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella during the company's Ignite event. "We believe in a future where there will be a Copilot for everyone and everything you do."

Originally known as Bing Chat, Microsoft Copilot is an AI chatbot that can perform a variety of tasks, including coding, typing, generating images, and answering general questions. Microsoft has extended the Copilot concept to various applications and experiences, including Microsoft 365, and aims to offer AI assistance in all aspects of workflows.

Is Microsoft Copilot free?
