Microsoft will begin selling Microsoft 365 Copilot, its generative AI-powered add-on to its core enterprise software bundle, to companies in November.

Microsoft has been testing the new offering with a handful of corporate clients, including Visa, General Motors, KPMG and telecommunications company Lumen Technologies. The software will be made generally available to enterprise customers on Nov. 1.

The Copilot software is designed to help employees with building PowerPoint presentations, managing their Outlook inbox and creating Word documents, among other uses. Microsoft says the system integrates into the company's broader Office 365 suite, which means the AI system adapts to a company's business data.

Microsoft on Thursday also introduced new uses for its AI software, including Designer, which helps create visuals, social media posts and invitations. Microsoft said the Copilot offering will also include a Chat service that serves as something of a virtual assistant.

Microsoft revealed plans for Copilot in March. In July, the company said it would price Copilot at $30 a person per month, which comes on top of the price for the legacy Office 365 suite.
