Key notes

  • Microsoft’s free Copilot lifts daily chat limit but retains a 30-image cap.
  • 300 chat daily limit does not apply anymore on the free version of Copilot.
  • The paid one, Copilot Pro, was recently announced.

Microsoft has recently announced that the free Copilot has lifted its daily limit. Previously, the Copilot daily limit was capped at 300 chats each day, and for some users, it can be too limiting.

Michael Schechter, Microsoft’s VP for Bing department, told a user on X (fka Twitter) that the free plan of Copilot doesn’t have a daily limit anymore. Though, folks over at Redmond still “do watch for scraping and other inauthentic behavior.”

However, this still doesn’t apply to images. And while the limit per chat for images (30) remains in effect, you will no longer receive the “You have reached your daily chat limit” message since the 300 chat daily limit does not apply anymore.

Copilot is a powerful AI tool that can help users be more productive. There are a few subscription plans: the free one works on all Windows desktops like a chatbot on the right side of your screen. 

The new Copilot Pro plan, which costs the same as ChatGPT Plus ($20), is the expansion of it: you get AI features in popular apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, early access to OpenAI’s latest models, and custom Copilot GPTs.

There’s also another thing called Copilot for Microsoft 365, designed for small and large businesses and organizations.
