I couldn't find the Copilot icon in my M365 office

Copper Contributor

I am using MS365 Nonprofit Business Standard edition, I couldn't find the Copilot icon.

Could you please let me know if our current version supports Copilot directly? If yes, how can I enable the Copilot icon? If not, how can I purchase it?

There are some requirements you need to meet to gain access to Copilot for M365. First of all, you need a Copilot license, available for $30/month. When you have this license, you should see Copilot in your Microsoft 365 environment, but there are some more reqs you need to meet. One important one is that you are on the correct update channel - Copilot is available in Current Channel and in Monthly Enterprise Channel.

If you meet the two, above mentioned reqs, can you see the icon in the web-apps for M365?


You already meet one of the requirement - M365 Business Standard Requirement

Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365 will follow the standard practice of deployment and updates for Microsoft 365 Apps, being available in all update channels, except for Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel. Preview channels (also known as Microsoft 365 Insider) include Current Channel (Preview) and Beta Channel. Production channels include Current Channel and Monthly Enterprise Channel.

Copilot is available in Current Channel and in Monthly Enterprise Channel.
For Copilot to work in Word Online, Excel Online, and PowerPoint Online, you need to have third-party cookies enabled.

So, once you have your Copilot for Microsoft 365 license assigned within 24-48 hours (Semantic Indexing) you should be able to see the Copilot icon in your apps .


Try updating your license too if it is not showing up within 24-48 hours (File --> Account --> Update License - from within a desktop office app).
