Microsoft 365 Copilot AI Tool Will Cost $30 Per Month, Launching Nov. 1

From CNET: Microsoft has revealed its pricing for Microsoft 365 Copilot, launching Nov. 1, which integrates the large language model tech from OpenAI's ChatGPT into Office applications, and it comes at a steep cost.

While it's still in early access, Microsoft said that 365 Copilot will cost $30 per user per month for E3, E5, Business Standard and Business Premium Customers when it becomes broadly available. In March, Microsoft brought its artificial intelligence-powered Bing into the Edge browser, calling it a "copilot" for the web.

Bing Chat is also coming to Microsoft 365 enterprise users in preview form, Microsoft said Tuesday. One key selling point is the price: If you're a Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard and Business Premium user, you'll get Bing Chat Enterprise at no additional cost. In the future, it will be available as a stand-alone product for $5 per month.

Microsoft is also pushing privacy as an important point, saying AI-powered chat data is protected and won't leak outside an organization.
