if you asking about M365 Copilot than wait till first week of November.
for Dynamics 365 , Power Platform and Win 11 you can try now .
What about pricing?
price is separate for separate products like Sales Copilot , M365 Copilot .

for M365 copilot 30 USD /Per user/Per month on Top of your M365 E3/E5/Business standard /Business premium License.
And for M365 Education ?
Not clear as of now ... starting Nov 1 , 2023 it copilot will be available to Enterprise customers



Start using Bing Chat Enterprise today

Announcing Microsoft 365 Copilot general availability and Microsoft 365 Chat | Microsoft 365 Blog

These are additional explanations :) 


To summarize today’s announcements, here is the product line-up for commercial customers:

Microsoft Copilot in Windows will be available on September 26. It will empower you to create faster and complete tasks with ease and lessen your cognitive load—making once-complicated tasks simple. We’ve made accessing the power of Copilot seamless as it’s always right there for you on the taskbar or with the Win+C keyboard shortcut, providing assistance alongside all your apps. Copilot in Windows will feature the new Copilot icon, the new Copilot user experience, Bing Chat, and will be available to commercial customers for free."

This is an excerpt from a link I shared.


Enterprise customers should call their Microsoft account representative to purchase Microsoft 365 Copilot beginning on November 1. EAP customers will have the first opportunity to deploy Copilot across their organizations when it is generally available. In addition, we have expanded our EAP to a select group of consumers and small business customers, and are excited to learn more as we scale."


How about a trial version ? how can i start with a test for copilot for M365

Do you have a source for Business Standard/Business Premium being sufficient for SMB's @SharmaNeeraj

Earlier it was mentioned about Business Standard and Business Premium ... but it seems now from 1st nov it is for only Enterprise customer ( E3/E5) only
There will be no trial. Also, puchasing is only possible via Microsoft Account Executive. CSP and indirect CSP is not available at start. In addtion, customers need to purchase at lease 300 Seats.
Thank you @SharmaNeeraj :smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I've read and heard that from before, but this is my "issue" at hand. I expect to get more information about GA and licensing for SMB during Ignite, but for now the only thing I can find written down and published, not spoiled verbally by a MVP or similar sources, is that GA for Enterprise (E3/E5) is november 1st.

Business Standard/Premium, expected GA for SMB, 300 seat minimum for Enterprise at GA november 1st is nowhere to be found officially.
