Copilot in Power Apps is an AI companion that guides you through the app creation process, from creating and importing data tables, to designing your app screens, to publishing and sharing your app. Copilot uses generative AI and best practices to create suggestions based on your data and preferences. Copilot will also provide tips and feedback along the way, so you can learn how to build better apps, faster.

The early results we’ve observed through the preview of Copilot in Power Apps underscore the impact it’s already having for our makers;

  • Makers who are building apps using Copilots are 65% more satisfied in their overall experience. That’s because Copilot helps you unleash your creativity and innovation and empowers you to build apps that meet your unique needs and goals.
  • Copilot helps makers build apps over data from Excel 80% faster than before. That’s because Copilot can automatically detect your data, suggest app ideas for you, and help you customize and publish your app in minutes.
  • In addition to being more satisfied and faster, makers using Copilot have a success rate 60% higher than those who don’t incorporate Copilot.
