Copilot for Microsoft 365 adds Priority Access to GPT-4 Turbo and expanded image generation capabilities

  • Staff

 Microsoft 365 Blog:

With Microsoft Copilot, we are bringing the power of generative AI to everyone across work and life. And with Copilot for Microsoft 365, we are committed to making sure our commercial customers have access to the very best generative AI models and capabilities from Microsoft.

Today we are announcing two important updates for users of Copilot for Microsoft 365. First, we are bringing priority access to the GPT-4 Turbo model to work with both web and work data. We will also be removing limits on the number and length of conversations while increasing file uploads. Second, later this month we are bringing expanded image generation capabilities in Microsoft Designer to users of Copilot for Microsoft 365, including priority access during peak times.

Priority access to GPT-4 Turbo and unlimited conversations​

Starting today, all licensed commercial customers will have priority access to GPT-4 Turbo in Copilot for Microsoft 365. As part of this change, we are removing the limits on the total number of chats per day and the number of turns per conversation, along with additional updates.

Together, these changes mean that customers will receive faster, more comprehensive responses whether they are using Copilot in the web context or in the work context.

In the web context, Copilot users get the power of the latest foundation models grounded in the latest public information from the web. The web context includes commercial data protection, meaning Microsoft doesn’t retain your prompts or responses, doesn’t have eyes on your prompts or responses, and doesn’t use your chat data to train the underlying foundation models—ensuring a more secure alternative to using other public generative AI services.

The work context lets you go even further by grounding in your work data––that’s your calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings, contacts, and more––so you get contextually accurate responses. Copilot can help you quickly scan your email for important messages to prioritize, help you get ready for key meetings by pulling information from across your work, and help you ideate on the best path forward. The work context also benefits from enterprise-grade data protection, going further to ensure that your data remains within the Microsoft 365 service boundary.

Expanded image generation capabilities in Microsoft Designer​

Starting next month, we’ll increase the number of image generation boosts per day from 15 to 100. Powered by the DALL-E 3 model, Microsoft Designer image generation allows users to create custom images from text descriptions, transforming written ideas into visual art. Users will be able to initiate up to 100 rapid image generation requests daily, significantly reducing waiting times for image creation and unlocking new productivity.

Harnessing the full power of Copilot​

We are learning alongside our customers that AI is so much more than a new technology. It is a new way of work that gives organizations the opportunity to completely reinvent their business—rewiring everything from core processes and workflows to hiring and training the workforce of the future.

These new capabilities will be initially available in, followed by the Copilot mobile app, in Windows, and in Edge, as well as the places where users can access the work context directly, like in Microsoft 365. Additional details about these changes are available on the Copilot for Microsoft 365 documentation page.
