02:15 — With Copilot Pro, there’s an enhanced AI image creation with Image Creator and the ability to built your own Copilot GPT.
02:37 — The individual license for Copilot Pro is $20 per user, per month. For users that currently have a business subscription for any of the Microsoft Business Premium applications, they can add on Copilot Pro for $30 per user, per month.
03:12 — Aaron notes how Microsoft removed the 300-seat minimum.
“You don’t have to meet this threshold, in other words, to get Copilot added into your business applications… you can also purchase this through Microsoft Cloud solution providers, as well as these partners.”
03:48 — Individual users, SMBs, and smaller organizations can now take advantage of Copilot’s capabilities. Looking ahead, Aaron predicts a rise in examples of “Copilot in production.” Since the initial “splash” was made in 2023, 2024 will be the year of practical applications and real-world examples of Copilot’s capbilities.
