Microsoft's AI Copilot Enhances OneNote in November

OneNote users are in for a treat as Microsoft prepares to launch its advanced AI assistant, Microsoft 365 Copilot, in the app this November. Unveiled earlier in the year, Copilot's integration into OneNote will offer users the ability to automatically generate lists, draft plans, rewrite notes, and provide numerous other AI-enhanced features.

Set to launch on November 1st for select Microsoft 365 business and enterprise plan customers, OneNote has been listed as one of the initial apps to benefit from this AI capability, as mentioned in a recent Microsoft 365 roadmap entry. Over the past half-year, a handful of Microsoft 365 Enterprise customers had the opportunity to test this promising system in applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Although the AI feature comes at a premium cost of $30 per user per month, Microsoft remains optimistic that Copilot will redefine the method of crafting Office documents.

OneNote users will easily spot the Copilot feature in the home ribbon of the app. Positioned as a side pane on the screen's right side, Copilot stands ready to condense pages or specific note sections, craft to-do lists, devise event plans, and even function as a chatbot to respond to user questions.

But Microsoft doesn't stop at the enterprise level. Plans are in the pipeline to extend Copilot to the consumer version of Microsoft 365 in the coming year. Given OneNote's massive student and consumer base, it's anticipated to be among the initial apps receiving the AI feature on the consumer end. Furthermore, OneDrive users can look forward to a major update as Copilot integration is on the horizon.
