What it means to users
Consumers and businesses alike can now use Copilot with all GPT-4 features and up-to-date citation information.
Commercial users receive commercial data protection at no additional cost. That is, prompts and responses are not saved. Microsoft does not monitor access, and the data is not used by the company to train the underlying large-scale language model (LLM).
Copilot helps users draft emails, summarize PDFs and articles, generate images with DALL-E 3, and get answers to complex questions.
Available in multiple browsers
Last month, Microsoft announced that Copilot would also be available on more platforms. For those interested, Copilot is available at https://copilot.microsoft.com in your favorite browser.
The company also announced that Bing.com will be available for users who want a combined search and chat experience. Copilot works in Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Safari browsers, and will soon be available on mobile.
