Copilot works within the Microsoft 365 apps ecosystem which includes Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and Teams. As Microsoft showed us in the announcement, it can generate ideas and create reports and documents in Word and PowerPoint by pulling information from your calendar, emails, and contact lists.
