  • To get Copilot Pro, open your “Microsoft account” (web), then go to the “Account” page, click the “Get Copilot Pro” option, choose a payment method, and subscribe.
  • After signing up, you can access the service on the web, on Windows 11, and in the mobile apps.

Copilot Pro is now available as a premium subscription that anyone can get, and in this guide, I’ll outline the process to sign up for the more advanced version of the chatbot AI.

The pro version of the chatbot is built on the Copilot you already know, but the pay subscription offers some additional benefits, such as GPT-4 Turbo, custom GPTs, enhanced AI image creation, and Copilot access from Microsoft 365 (Office) apps. (A Personal or Family subscription is required to access the AI in the suite of Office apps.)

The subscription costs $20 per month, which you have to pay on a monthly basis since there aren’t yearly option plans at this time. Once you sign up for the service, you will be able to access the pro version and all the benefits in any place where Copilot (free) is available, including at, on Windows 11 and 10, through the Copilot mobile app for Android and iOS, and in Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

In this guide, I’ll explain how to subscribe to the Microsoft Copilot Pro service.

Here’s a breakdown of the Copilot Pro features available:

  • Commercial Data Protection: This only means that Microsoft provides enhanced privacy and security for users so that the company cannot see your code and data, and they are processed securely in compliance with regulations. (This is also available in the free version.)
  • Priority access: Allows you to get faster access to GPT-4 and GPT-4 Turbo during peak hours, whereas, for free users, the access is limited to GPT-3.5 during high traffic. Priority access also means early access to updates and release of the latest language models.
  • Copilot GPTs: In the near future, Microsoft will release Copilot GPT Builder, a feature that will allow pro users to create their own Copilot tailored to a specific topic.
  • Microsoft 365 apps with Copolit: The service provides access to the chatbot from Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote. This feature will help you create draft documents, summarize text, analyze data, compose emails, create presentations, and more.
  • Image Creator from Designer: The subscription also includes an enhanced version of the AI to create more accurate images using the DALL-E 3 language model. You’ll also get 100 boosts per day.

Copilot Pro is currently only available in the United States, Austria, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, France, the United Kingdom, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and New Zealand. Microsoft plans to expand in more regions in the future.
