At GitHub Universe, we announced that GitHub Copilot has expanded and evolved GitHub into the world’s leading AI-powered developer platform. A core piece of our AI-powered developer platform is GitHub Copilot Chat, which enables the rise of natural language as the new universal programming language.
GitHub Copilot Chat is now available to all GitHub Copilot individual users. Enterprise and organization administrators can grant their development teams access to Copilot Chat by enabling the Copilot Chat setting for their users. If you’ve been using Copilot Chat in beta or have already provided access to your development team, no additional actions are required.
Powered by GPT-4, available in any natural language
Powered by GPT-4, GitHub Copilot Chat is a contextually-aware AI assistant designed specifically for developer scenarios. Teams of developers and individuals alike can prompt Copilot Chat in the natural language of their choice–from German to Portuguese and beyond–and receive real-time guidance without ever leaving the IDE. From explaining complex coding concepts to detecting security vulnerabilities and writing unit tests, Copilot Chat can help every developer innovate at the speed of thought.
With so many capabilities, you might be wondering how to begin incorporating the magic of GitHub Copilot Chat into your day-to-day workflow. Copilot Chat is personalized to each developer and their unique coding practices, so it’s really up to you to decide where and when to use it. For some inspiration, we’re excited to share how developers here at GitHub are using it to stay in the flow, and build better, more secure software faster than ever.
