If you want to use GitHub Copilot, you will need a subscription for your GitHub personal account. For more information about GitHub Copilot, see "About GitHub Copilot."
If you are a student, or a maintainer of a popular open source project on GitHub, you may be eligible for a free GitHub Copilot subscription. If you are not eligible for a free subscription, a paid subscription is available.
Before starting a paid subscription, you can set up a one-time 60-day trial to evaluate GitHub Copilot. To begin a trial, you will need to choose a monthly or yearly billing cycle, and provide a payment method. If you do not cancel the trial before the end of the 60 days, the trial will automatically convert to a paid subscription. You can cancel your GitHub Copilot trial at any time during the 60 days and you won't be charged. If you cancel before the end of the trial, you will continue to have access to GitHub Copilot until the 60-day trial period ends. For more information, see "Managing your GitHub Copilot subscription".
The GitHub Copilot subscription is available on a monthly or yearly cycle. If you choose a monthly billing cycle, you will be billed $10 per calendar month. If you choose a yearly billing cycle, you will be billed $100 per year. You can modify your billing cycle at any time, and the modification will be reflected from the start of your next billing cycle.
