Pro users also gain access to advanced features like code completion for over 40 programming languages and personalized suggestions tailored to their work style.

According to Microsoft's blog that announced the news, some Copilot GPTs are already available. These GPTs allow the ability to fine-tune Copilot’s behavior for specific tasks like fitness, travel and cooking.

CoPilot GPT Builder, the tool for creating customized GPTs will be rolled out soon.

This level of customization makes Copilot Pro an invaluable asset for developers, data scientists and anyone who demands the best from their AI partner.

How Much Does CoPilot Pro Cost?

Copilot Pro for individual use joins Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscriptions for $19.99/month.

Meanwhile, large organizations can now subscribe to Copilot for Microsoft 365 without any seat limit for $30 per person a month.
