Table of Contents

Unless you’ve been under the rock, you may be aware of Microsoft’s Copilot AI Companion. Microsoft Copilot is basically a cross-platform AI assistant available for Windows, Android, iOS, and the web.

Windows users will also find Microsoft Copilot integration on apps like Edge and MS Office. We are discussing Copilot because Microsoft recently launched a premium version of its AI companion named Copilot Pro.

The pricing of Microsoft Copilot Pro starts at $20 per month per user. The premium version of Copilot, Copilot Pro, is receiving much hype lately; hence, we decided to share more about the subscription-based update to Microsoft Copilot – Copilot Pro.

What is Copilot Pro?

Copilot Pro is a paid version of Microsoft Copilot free that you find in Microsoft Edge Browser and Office apps. The Copilot app is also available for Android & iPhone users.

Since it’s an upgraded version of the free version, Copilot Pro offers some advanced AI capabilities that are missing in the free version. Also, it brings AI skills to Microsoft 365 Personal & Family subscribers.

Copilot Free is more popular than the recently launched Pro version, and the reason behind this is that users aren’t aware of how Copilot Pro is different from the free one.

Copilot vs. Copilot Pro – What are the Difference?

The Copilot Pro claims to supercharge your creativity & productivity with a premium Copilot experience. The pro version differs from the free one because it gives you priority access to GPT-4 and the latest model (GPT-4 Turbo).

You get many useful features with Copilot Pro, like unlocking the Copilot in Microsoft 365 apps, creating AI images with DALL-E 3 in landscape format even faster, and more.

Copilot vs. Copilot Pro - What are the Difference?

Below, we have summarized the key differences between Copilot and Copilot Pro. So, go through this summarization before you plan to purchase the premium version of Microsoft’s AI tool.

The Copilot Pro version adds AI features to your favorite Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. The AI features help you unlock your creativity, communicate with confidence & level up your digital skills.

You can also access Copilot in selected Microsoft 365 apps to draft documents, summarise emails, and create presentations.

Upgrading to the Copilot Pro will also give you priority access to GPT-4 and GPT-4 Turbo, even during peak times. With priority access, you can expect accelerated performance to get things done faster.

Copilot Pro Pricing Details

While the features of Copilot Pro are interesting, you may now question its pricing. Microsoft Copilot Pro is priced at $20 per month per user; anyone can purchase it now.

The pricing may look expensive to many, but it follows the same pricing structure that other AI models follow. Copilot Pro alternatives like Claude Pro and ChatGPT Plus is also priced at $20 per month per user.

Copilot Pro vs ChatGPT Plus – Which is the Best Option?

Before you compare the two AI chatbots, it’s important to understand that Microsoft Works closely with Open AI, and Copilot is powered by the same GPT mode that powers ChatGPT.

So, given both chatbots are powered by the same GPT Model, the responses are often similar. And both Copilot Pro and ChatGPT Plus give you access to GPT-4 and the newly launched GPT-4 Turbo models.

Both subscriptions will give you priority access to the AI chatbots, even during peak hours. However, the ChatGPT Plus subscription has one big advantage – The GPT Store, which allows you to add plugins.

On the other hand, Copilot Pro will benefit Microsoft app users as it’s supposed to supercharge apps like Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote with generative AI features.

Where Can I Buy Copilot Pro?

You can also purchase Copilot Pro from the Apple App Store (iPad and Mac). Microsoft also claimed they plan to add more ways to buy Copilot Pro soon.
