Feature update, User impact, Admin impact



Search based plugins for Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365 were rolled out in November 2023 to all tenants licensed for Microsoft Copilot for Microsoft 365. However, this feature was only activated after an initial tenant-wide opt-in had been secured.
This feature, currently accessible from within Microsoft Teams, will be moved into public preview in late February 2024. At that time, the opt-in requirements will be removed, and the feature will be available to all licensed Copilot for Microsoft 365 tenants.
The plugin capability will be enabled in all licensed tenants by default. Note, admins can disable this functionality on a user and group basis and control how individual plugins are approved for use, and which plugins are enabled.
Tenants that have set the opt-in flag or made any changes to associated plugin access or usage settings will not be impacted. Existing plugin-specific settings will be unchanged and will remain in force.
In the weeks following this initial update, plugins for Copilot for Microsoft 365 will also be made available within additional hubs including, and Bing.
[When this will happen:]
Default availability of plugins to all tenants licensed for Copilot for Microsoft 365 will begin in late February and expected to be completed before March 1, 2024.
Availability in other hubs such as, and Bing will begin within two to three weeks after the public preview has been fully released.
