Copilot 2024: You can now get ChatGPT Plus for free, Here’s how:

ChatGPT Plus costs $20 per month and now Microsoft is giving you ChatGPT Plus for free via copilot


Thank you, Microsoft.

Microsoft has secretly updated its Copilot artificial intelligence helpers with the most recent version of OpenAI’s large language model GPT-4-Turbo.

This version of the model was previously only available with a premium ChatGPT Plus subscription, which costs $20 per month. It supports more complicated queries and answers.

Copilot is now available across Microsoft’s products and services, including Windows 11, the 365 productivity suite, and as a standalone app for iOS and Android.


GPT-4-Turbo, with its more recent knowledge cutoff, improved processing capabilities, and increased RAM, is gradually being rolled out to Copilot users that have GPT-4 activated.


What makes GPT-4-Turbo different?

The most recent version of GPT-4, the most advanced model, features a new knowledge threshold compared to previous versions. It has information up to and including April 2023, as well as a significantly larger 128k context window, which is equivalent to 300 pages of text.

The prior data cutoff for the base GPT-4 model was September 2021, a year before ChatGPT’s introduction. It also had a 32,000-token context window, which meant it would forget what you taught it after about 100 pages of text.

Other notable upgrades to GPT-4-Turbo include better picture analysis and reasoning skills.

This implies it can better follow directions. In a blog post, OpenAI stated that “GPT-4 Turbo performs better than our previous models on tasks that require careful following of instructions”.

How to access GPT-4-Turbo in Copilot


Microsoft has not publicly confirmed that GPT-4-Turbo is available in Copilot, but they did state in December that the AI tool would receive regular updates.

Several people noted that the model listed in the source code of the Copilot website was the same name as the most recent OpenAI LLM.

The transition has been taking place silently in the background for service users. It is only available when GPT-4 is enabled, and the only way to determine — aside from inspecting the source code — is to see if it provides more up-to-date information.
