Microsoft wants you to pay $300 per year for AI art in Word

AI art has existed within Microsoft's ecosystem since 2022, when Microsoft released its first beta of Microsoft Bing Image Creator. That later became Microsoft Designer, the design tool that Microsoft developed to compete against Canva. This week, Microsoft said that Designer's AI art capabilities would roll out in several of its apps and services, including Photos, Word, and PowerPoint.

There's a catch, though: Those capabilities don't come for free. Microsoft 365, of course, requires a subscription: A Personal user must pay $6.99 per month or $69.99 annually, while Family users pay $9.99 per month or $99.99 annually. (PCWorld sells discounted Microsoft 365 subscriptions.) That subscription unlocks Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and more, of course. But to generate AI art within Word, Microsoft charges an additional $20 per user per month for what it calls a Copilot Pro subscription.
