GitHub announced this week the availability of GitHub Copilot Chat in December 2023, as well as new plans for GitHub Copilot Enterprise, new AI-powered security features, and the GitHub Copilot Partner Program.
The Microsoft-owned company unveiled these advancements during its annual GitHub Universe developer conference.
Copilot Chat, which sits inside the developer’s integrated development environment (IDE), allows them to ask questions about the code they’re currently working on, including getting it to identify and propose fixes to bugs in a particular program and even provide inline feedback about specific lines of code.
It is powered by the latest OpenAI large language model (LLM) GPT-4 and is available as part of the standard Copilot subscription ($10/month for individuals and $19/month for businesses.)
The GitHub Copilot Enterprise subscription will cost $39/month and will be available from February 2024. It will include the ability for companies to personalize it for their codebase and fine-tune the underlying models.
“Just as GitHub was founded on Git, today we are re-founded on Copilot,” said the company in a blog post.
