OneNote will get Microsoft 365 Copilot. Last month, Microsoft unveiled Copilot for Teams, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Now, it’s ready to show how an AI-powered assistant will change notetaking.
“As your notetaking companion, Copilot leverages your suggestions to develop plans, generate ideas, build lists, organize information, and more,” says OneNote product manager Greg Mace.
Like Word, the AI assistant may rewrite, format, or summarize the text in OneNote using sidebar prompts. The AI assistant can also arrange events and brainstorm meeting themes.
Microsoft hasn’t showcased OneNote’s integrated Copilot integration yet. For example, when you hover over a highlighted paragraph in Word, the Copilot assistant will automatically rewrite it.
Microsoft hasn’t indicated when OneNote will get Copilot. However, several Microsoft 365 corporate customers are testing a preview version of Copilot in Word and Outlook, and some of these early versions can be activated in Word beta.
I’ve been generating text with Word’s Copilot private preview. It’s early, so it requires a lot more features before it’s ready for public preview. However, Microsoft is testing Copilot extensively before releasing it.
