Accessing Copilot on Microsoft 365 Apps

Microsoft Copilot is already integrated into Microsoft 365 apps for some users. However, if you haven’t been able to access the features yet, you may need to update your Microsoft applications.

Once updated, you can switch Copilot in any Microsoft 365 apps mentioned above. Just look for the Copilot icon, usually in the ribbon menu for your app.

Updating Microsoft 365 Office apps is a straightforward process, and it can usually be done directly through the applications themselves. Here's a general guide on how to update these apps:

Open an Office Application: Start by opening any Office application like Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.

Access Account Information: Once the application is open, go to the "File" menu, which is typically located in the top left corner of the window. Then, select "Account" or "Office Account" from the list on the left side of the window.

Check for Updates: In the Account section, you should see an area labeled "Product Information" or similar. Here, look for an option that says “Update Options” or "Office Updates." Click on it to reveal a drop-down menu.
Choose to Update: From the drop-down menu, select “Update Now” or “Enable Updates” if updates are not set to be installed automatically. If you choose “Enable Updates,” the Office suite will automatically check for and install updates when they are available.

Wait for the Update to Complete: Once you select to update, the application will begin checking for and installing any available updates. This process may take some time, depending on the size of the update and the speed of your internet connection.
Restart the Application: After the update is complete, you may need to restart the application or your computer for the updates to take effect fully.
