Plugins for Microsoft Copilot now easier to manage and publish
At Microsoft Ignite we saw some changes and improvements to the way that Copilot plugins are handled within the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.
Firstly, developers will be able to submit apps that include Copilot plugins and Graph connectors to a new “Microsoft 365 and Copilot” program. This replaces the previous “Microsoft 365” program and reflects the fact the Teams messaging extensions and Graph connectors can be used to enhance Copilot as well.
Once published, admins will more easily be able to identity plugins for Microsoft Copilot in the Microsoft 365 Admin Center. Admins will be able to enable or disable selected plugins by user or group using the existing policy structure.
Users will then be able to discover Copilot plugins through the Teams App Store, the Outlook App Store or at microsoft365.com.
