In this week’s episode of “This Week in IT,” we dive into a significant update from Microsoft that promises to revolutionize team productivity. The episode, sponsored by Semperis, starts with an engaging introduction and an appeal for subscriptions to help the channel reach its goal of 6,700 subscribers.

The spotlight of the episode is on Microsoft’s announcement at the recent Build conference regarding Team Copilot. Currently, Copilot for Microsoft 365 serves as a personal AI assistant, keeping interactions private. However, the new Team Copilot is set to transform this by extending its capabilities to support entire teams, departments, or even whole companies.

Key Features of Team Copilot:

  • Meetings: Acts as a meeting facilitator, taking editable notes, creating follow-up tasks, managing agendas, and keeping discussions on track with timers.
  • Group Chats: Functions as a visible collaborator to the entire team, answering questions and interacting based on shared files.
  • Planner: Serves as an AI project manager, capable of creating and assigning tasks, notifying team members, and facilitating group collaboration.

Looking ahead, Team Copilot will be integrated into other Microsoft 365 apps like Loop, and organizations will have the ability to create custom Copilots for specific business processes. Additionally, the episode discusses the introduction of the Copilot Trust platform, which aims to enhance security and efficiency for enterprise customers.

Russell also addresses potential challenges, such as the high licensing costs and the need for comprehensive data integration into Microsoft 365, while emphasizing the significant ROI that Team Copilot could offer, especially for smaller companies.

The episode wraps up with a call to action, encouraging viewers to share their experiences and opinions on Copilot, and promoting additional content on the channel about new AI features and devices from Microsoft.
