Use Copilot in Microsoft Teams chat and channels

Copilot in Microsoft Teams chat and channels helps you get up to speed on conversations by quickly reviewing the main points, action items, and decisions without having to scroll through long threads.

Note:  Copilot references information from the message thread in which it is opened, with a 30-day history. Copilot can't reference images, loop components, or files shared in the chat thread.

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