Microsoft Releases an Update to the Copilot Free Tier with the GPT-4 Turbo

By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 14 March 2024

Microsoft recently improved Copilot, its AI assistant, by adding the sophisticated GPT-4 Turbo model to its free service tier. This change makes it possible for free users to use GPT-4 Turbo by enabling Creative or Precise mode in Copilot, a functionality that was previously only available to Copilot Pro members. Users of Copilot Pro, however, may still flip between GPT-4 Turbo and previous AI models whenever they like. Microsoft's CEO of digital services and advertising, Mikhail Parakhin, announced this new feature on the social networking platform X.

Text-to-speech features and a maximum token processing capacity of 128,000 are two of GPT-4 Turbo's best-known features. Models from OpenAI have never been more capable thanks to training on data until April 2023. Microsoft hopes to smoothly integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into user experiences with the launch of Copilot and its integration across a number of platforms, including Windows 11, Bing, Microsoft 365, and the Edge browser. For $20 a month, Copilot's Pro subscription provides early access to new models and improved picture production capabilities, in addition to other AI-powered functionality in Office applications.

This development follows the success of OpenAI's ChatGPT and is part of a larger trend of tech businesses incorporating generative AI into their products. Rivals like as Google, Samsung, and maybe Apple are investigating AI features for their products or have already included them. Innovating further, OpenAI permits the development of specialized AI applications, while rivals are also improving their AI chatbots.

A blog post that was taken down from OpenAI's website, suggesting that GPT-4.5 Turbo will be faster, more accurate, and more scalable than GPT-4 Turbo, has stoked rumors regarding the next version of the model. This implies that Microsoft may save the future GPT-4.5 Turbo model for its Copilot Pro tier, therefore providing unique benefits to users who are willing to pay for it.
