copilot studio license

Hello

I purchased the Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365 for $30.00 monthly. Do i have access to copilot studio based on the items included in the license below?

The license includes the following items: 

  • Integrated with Teams, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and other Microsoft 365 apps
  • AI-powered chat with Microsoft Copilot
  • Connect to your data in third-party apps using Copilot Studio
  • Enterprise-grade security, privacy, and compliance
     
    thanks

To the best of my knowledge, Copilot Studio is not included in the Copilot for Microsoft 365 license at this point. However, a specific license isn't a requirement for creating Copilot bots.  You can create a bot using a trial license and the trial license can be extended whenever it expires. A tenant license is required for users to consume the bots in production.  This article discusses the licensing required for Copilot Studio. Assign user licenses and manage access - Microsoft Copilot Studio | Microsoft Learn

Extending Copilot for Microsoft 365 with Copilot Studio is covered by the Copilot for Microsoft 365 license. However, this only covers the creation and use of conversational plugins (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-copilot-studio/copilot-conversational-plugins), not creating custom copilots and deploying them to

other channels. 

Hi! I'm trying to get the hang of the licensing for copilot studio. Is it correct that I only need a tenant license and user licenses for my developers to build for example a chatbot that will be embedded on a sharepoint site available for all users, or do all users need a copilot license to be able to use the chatbot? Thanks in advance, and please tell me if I should start a new subject regarding this instead!

So just to make sure the distinction is clear: if you want to build a custom copilot (e.g. a copilot that will be embedded in SharePoint), you will need the Copilot Studio standalone license (and not M365 Copilot). That is a message-based license, and yes, messages are pooled at the tenant level. End users conversing with the copilot do not need licenses assigned to them - that is covered by consuming messages. 

 

Copilot makers/builder do need per user licenses, but those do not incur additional costs.

Good morning,

 

I hope you are doing well. To my mind, copilot studio is a different offer and you will need a different license (a tenant license for your organizations and a free user license for each of the people building on copilot studio). However, if you want to try copilot studio and how it can expand the capabilities of copilot, there is a free trial of two months or so available.

Have a great day,

Hope it helps.

Once the chatbot is built, using it is covered by the tenant license. Individual users don't need a license to use the chatbot.

I was also expecting to have access to Copilot Studio on purchase of Copilot for Microsoft 365. The following article from Microsoft employee, Richard Riley, states "Copilot Studio provides a visual canvas to create plugins, publish and manage them centrally, and secure them with the right access, data controls, and analytics. This is included in your Copilot for Microsoft 365 subscription and available in public preview today."

Is this information incorrect, or just misleading (because it isn't actually Copilot Studio that is included)?

Thanks @Pstork1 - understood. I just wish the Microsoft article was more specific about this limitation rather than being somewhat general. I believe the problem lies in the fact that there are so many flavours and variations of Copilot Studio, and to say that Copilot for Microsoft 365 includes Copilot Studio is not entirely accurate.
