Rewrite and adjust your messages with Copilot in Microsoft Teams

Use Copilot to polish your messages and improve your communication (and collaboration) with your team. The compose box now includes Copilot to help you rewrite and edit chat and channel messages, and adapt the tone and length, everywhere you communicate in Teams.

Note: Messages longer than about 75 words can’t be rewritten with Copilot.

Use Copilot before sending a message

To use Copilot in a chat or channel:

  1. Write your message in the box at the bottom of the chat or channel.

  2. Select Copilot beneath the message box.

    1. You can rewrite your message 10 times, each time generating another version. To go back to previous versions, select the left and right arrows below the text.

    2. You can rewrite and adjust a specific selection of your message (rather than the whole thing) by selecting that section once you’ve opened the compose Copilot, then selecting Rewrite and/or Adjust.

  4. Adjust lets you choose from the menu options to change the length and style of your message. Try these options:
    -Make it concise
    -Make it longer
    -Make it sound casual
    -Make it sound professional
    -Make it sound confident
    -Make it sound enthusiastic

  5. When you’re satisfied with the new message, select Replace. If you’ve selected a partial section of your message, only the selected text will be updated.
