M365 Changelog: Update to supported languages in Teams Meeting Copilot


Teams Meeting Copilot now supports 16 new languages, making a total of 27 supported languages. Unsupported language responses have been removed to avoid misuse. Rollout begins mid-May 2024, completing by late May. Organizations should prepare by informing users of the supported languages.

MC791459 – As Microsoft updated our architecture, Microsoft has officially added support for 16 new languages in Copilot across Microsoft. However, as part of this change Microsoft has also removed the ability for Copilot to generate responses in languages it does not fully support, as this can lead to uncontrolled responses which could cause potential Responsible AI concerns, or misuse of AI. Please advise your organization that Copilot will now only be able to respond in our list of supported languages. Microsoft will also further increase the number of languages supported over the coming months.

When this will happen:

Microsoft is starting rollout in mid-May 2024 and will complete by late May 2024. 

How this will affect your organization:

Once the change is rolled out, users may encounter issues if they try asking Copilot a question in a language Microsoft does not officially support.

What you need to do to prepare:
