Thank you!
I will check it out
Microsoft 365 Copilot will be available for enterprise customers on Nov. 1, 2023, along with Microsoft 365 Chat, a new AI assistant that will completely transform the way you work.

I have Copilot license activated, it is available in teams and web versions of Office, but not in desktop versions. What should I do to find the problem? I have various installations of m365 apps, channel current or monthly enterprise, but copilot is nowhere to be found.


I have the same issue, let me know if you find a solution @jr_bva1615 


It seems that the Copilot features are being rolled out gradually. This morning, it was only available in Teams, but now it’s also available in Word and PowerPoint. However, it’s not yet available in Excel. As I continue to work, I see that it’s now available in Outlook as well. The Copilot in Windows still has the PRE logo.

Like me, do you use 2 or more accounts like business and personal? Make sure that you login with the right account for each application.

Enjoy your journey with Copilot,



I discovered that the copilot appears as the 365 license is renewed. Does it work to log out and log in users, or maybe purge
Some users got the license update button, but among the 50 or so who have a license with us, it was 2.

No but you can clear Cache in the applications, but it will take time until it shows up in all applications as it will enable additional features and additonal configurations happening in the background when enabling license.
