To help address those needs, today we’re delighted to announce more options for power users, creators and anyone looking to take their Copilot experience to the next level. This begins with the introduction of Copilot Pro, a new premium subscription for individuals that provides a higher tier of service for AI capabilities, brings Copilot AI capabilities to Microsoft 365 Personal and Family subscribers, and new capabilities, such as the ability to create Copilot GPTs.

What's the difference between Free and Pro?​

Finally, Copilot Pro will soon let you build a custom Copilot GPT tailored to your specific need or topic. This feature is coming soon in Copilot GPT Builder. However, Microsoft is rolling out an initial set of Copilot GPTs with a focus on particular purposes, such as cooking, travel, fitness, and more. All Copilot users can access Copilot GPTs, while Pro subscribers will soon be able to create their own using simple prompts.

Microsoft Copilot is currently rolling out a new version called, Deucalion, on Edge, after some users noticed a shift in behavior which caused it to offer better solutions and answers to tasks.

Mikhail Parakhin, leader of the Windows and Web Experiences Team, which is responsible for Copilot, confirmed the improvement is due to a new Copilot version being rolled out.
We are continually improving Microsoft Copilot, testing a new version of the base model in a flight. Fun fact: its internal name is “Deucalion” (the son of Prometheus in Greek mythology).

The new version can provide complex and well-researched outputs even in the Balance mode, which is known to be a bit reserved. In a post made to X, it seems that some users are already on this new version, while others might have to wait.

When asked what is Deucalion capable of, Parakhin answered that the new Copilot version makes use of multiple AI models to provide users with the best outputs. Some of these models are coming from OpenAI, while others are trained in-house, by Microsoft.
