OneNote is set to receive Microsoft’s new AI Copilot tool that will reportedly help users in writing their notes. Copilot in OneNote as you should know can format, rewrite or even summarize your existing notes and then help you to create plans and do many more.
Microsoft’s New AI Copilot Tool
Microsoft at the moment is planning to add its new Microsoft 365 Copilot assistant tool to OneNote. The software company initially announced the Copilot program for apps such as Teams, Excel, Word, as well as PowerPoint in the previous month. And the company is now ready to show just how note-taking will be impacted by an AI-powered assistant.
“As your notetaking partner, Copilot uses your prompts to draft plans, generate ideas, create lists, organize information, and more,” Greg Mace, a product manager for OneNote explains.
Features of the Copilot Assistance Tool
Very much like Copilot’s integration in Word, the AI assistant can rewrite, format, or even summarize your existing text in OneNote simply based on prompts in a sidebar interface. You can ask the AI assistant as well to help you create a plan for an event or generate topics and talking points for meetings.
Microsoft has not shown off Copilot’s inline integration in OneNote just yet, though. However, in the Word version, you can highlight paragraphs and the Copilot assistant will pop up or appear when you mouse over a section of the paragraph to automatically offer up rewritten text.
When Will the Copilot Be Available In OneNote
The software company also has not announced the time and when the Copilot will be available in OneNote. A handful of Microsoft 365 enterprise customers currently are testing a preview version of Copilot in apps such as Word and Outlook, and some of these early versions as you know can be enabled in beta copies of Word right about now.
Microsoft Is Still Testing the Tool
And just recently I have been playing around with the private preview of Copilot in Word, utilizing it to generate text. This is a very early implementation right now, so there are lots of missing functionality that needs to be sorted out before it’s ready for a public preview. Microsoft is at the moment testing this heavily before rolling it more broadly, and the firm has not committed to any dates for Copilot as of yet.
