Chat with Copilot about your Word document

Note: This feature is available to customers with a Copilot for Microsoft 365 license or Copilot Pro license.

In addition to creating content, Copilot in Word has the ability to answer questions about the document you're reading. Once Copilot responds to your prompt, you can also view references with citations from where Copilot pulled information in your document.

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

Ask questions about this document

  • Summarize this document - Need to get to the essence of the document quickly? Type Summarize this document into the Copilot chat pane to get a bulleted summary of the document.

  • Is there a call to action? - Wondering if the document contains a meaningful call to action? Ask Copilot, and it'll attempt to tell you.

Ask open-ended questions

Want to add some content or context to your document? Ask Copilot general questions, and it'll try to give you answers. For example: 

  • How can I edit this document to make it sound more academic?

  • Is there a quote by a United States President about courage?

If those answers aren't in the document, Copilot will generate content for you using the underlying large language models. If you find something you like and want to add it to the document, just copy and paste from the Copilot pane to the document.
