Microsoft is launching a Microsoft 365 Copilot tool for employees that is looking to get more developers to use artificial intelligence, Business Insider reported Wednesday.
The company is conducting pilot tests to increase the use of AI tools among the developer community and is planning a wide release of Microsoft 365 to its teams for the first time, the report said, citing an internal message.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
The company's investment and partnership with OpenAI, the fast-growing cloud business thanks to customers looking to build AI applications, has made Microsoft the world's most valuable company, overtaking Apple.
The Copilot tool is Microsoft's generative AI assistant, built using OpenAI's large language models. The Microsoft 365 Copilot product is an iteration of the tool in the company's productivity suite that includes Word, Outlook and Teams.
In November, Microsoft began selling Copilot, an AI assistant that can capture an email inbox or create a slideshow, for $30 a month.
