Integrating GitHub Copilot into Visual Studio 17.10 from Installation: A Fee Required

Microsoft has released Visual Studio 17.10 Preview 3 with a new feature that enhances the functionality of GitHub Copilot. This update combines two packages, Copilot for code completion and Copilot Chat for answering questions, into a single package. Users only need to install one package, eliminating the need to install two separate packages as before.

These changes only affect the packages that need to be installed within Visual Studio. The user experience remains the same, with GitHub Copilot being a package that Microsoft installs alongside Visual Studio 17.10, eliminating the need for separate installation. While there is a subscription fee for GitHub Copilot starting at $10 (with a free 30-day trial and free access for students and open source project maintainers).

TLDR: Microsoft updates Visual Studio 17.10 Preview 3 with improved GitHub Copilot integration, combining Copilot and Copilot Chat into a single package for easier installation. Subscription fees apply.
