Microsoft has announced a new AI-powered "Copilot" feature for Microsoft 365's Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Teams applications. All of these programs will use Copilot for intelligent content generation. On March 16, the company hosted the "The Future of Work with AI" event, where all the announcements were made.
Copilot in Word
In the Word application, the Copilot function will be able to generate texts in natural language based on user requests. For example, you can ask Word to help you create a report on a specific topic, and even provide AI with data to analyze, including other documents from your computer.
Of course, the user will be able to manually edit the generated text. Or you can use the Copilot feature again to make AI rewrite certain fragments in a different style. In addition, AI will be able to format text, which means users will be able to create documents with more complex layouts.
The Copilot feature will also be able to check documents for spelling and punctuation, suggest text edits based on your likes and dislikes. Thus, artificial intelligence should significantly speed up the creation and editing of documents in Word.
Copilot in Excel
In Excel, the Copilot feature helps you analyze and explore data in tables. You will be able to ask questions in natural language, not just formulas. Artificial intelligence will be able to identify correlations, predict “what if” scenarios, and suggest new formulas based on your questions.
Copilot in PowerPoint
In the PowerPoint application, the Copilot function will allow you to generate presentations on a specific topic, including links to other documents used for information and inspiration. The artificial intelligence understands commands such as "add animation to this slide" and can also apply styles to each specific slide or the entire presentation based on a description from the user.
Copilot in Outlook
Copilot in Teams
Finally, in the Teams app, Copilot will be able to prepare a recap of the highlights of the meeting. Moreover, artificial intelligence will be able to answer questions, suggest those responsible for performing a particular task, and also determine a convenient time for the next conference.
