If you go to Appscribed’s blog section, you will realize that I have been a fan of Microsoft’s Copilot from the last couple of months, as I have covered more than 3 articles on it already.

While I don’t think Copilot is a great tool for content writing, you can count on it to provide you the right facts. I don’t trust Bard and ChatGPT on the facts they mention.

Recently, Microsoft launched Copilot Pro which offers some additional features on top of the basic Copilot. But is the Copilot Pro worth it for you?

Microsoft Copilot Pro is the advanced and most powerful version of Copilot that provides advanced AI assistance in various tasks such as writing, coding, designing, and researching. Copilot Pro offers exclusive features like access to cutting-edge OpenAI language models, including GPT-4 Turbo and Copilot GPT.

How much does Copilot Pro cost?

Copilot Pro is priced at $20 per month per user. This gives you access to all the features of Copilot Pro that we will discuss in detail later in the article. However, if you go for a yearly subscription of Copilot Pro, you can get it for $199.99.

How to access Copilot Pro for Free?

As of today, Copilot Pro is not available for free access. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy the advantages of GPT-4 through the free version of Copilot, which utilizes GPT-4 based on the complexity of the query.

But the free version won’t provide you the benefits of Copilot Pro that are mentioned below.

Copilot Pro Features

Who should use Copilot Pro?

Well, Copilot Pro offers advanced capabilities to help individuals with writing, coding, designing, and researching compared to the free version of the AI chatbot. Copilot Pro provides access to the latest OpenAI language models like GPT-4 Turbo and Copilot GPT, allowing users to create custom GPTs. Copilot Pro also offers new AI features, including access to AI tools within Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

Copilot Pro is just the advanced version of Copilot. I mostly use Copilot for research and content creation. And the free version of Copilot does a great job at that.

However, if you are someone who uses Microsoft Office 365 very frequently, Copilot Pro would increase your productivity a lot.

Conclusion

While Copilot has made me its fan, I am not very impressed with Copilot Pro. While the features like access to cutting-edge language models, AI integration with Office apps, enhanced image generation, and personalized AI assistance, Copilot Pro elevates productivity and creativity for Microsoft 365 users, it doesn’t cater much to creators like me. However, with time, Copilot Pro will get even better with more powerful LLM and new features. Maybe then it will become an essential tool for everyone.
