Can i use Copilot chat along with Cursor Chat option?

Dear Cursor Team,
Thanks for this amazing tool. It’s helping me a lot to understand the codebase and docs. Now i am using my own open API key and it’s costing more for me. So i am thinking of using Github Copilot chat for generic queries and cursor chat for my codebase / doc and other project related queries. So i can keep the cost under control. Even though i imported all my extensions, copilot chat feature is not showing in cursor. How can i enable both cursor chat and copilot chat?

It is possible, but not for now.

Copilot Chat is in beta.

if you have access to it, it’s only available through VS Code Insiders.

So, we are using Cursor that forked the official VS Code, and can’t use the extension during the Copilot Chat beta.

… and Honestly, Copilot Chat is useless compared to what cursor is capable of.


Status Update

Copilot Chat is now available and working in Cursor.

How do you make it work? I still don’t see option for inline chat in Curosr (version 0.22.1, VScode version 1.85.1, Linux)

Inline chat/prompt unfortunately is still not working.

@mtf Regarding GitHub Copilot’s Inline Chat here:

Thanks! Yes I’ve seen that and I’m still hoping the user will get the choice whether to disable it or not :slight_smile: (some time in the future :slight_smile:

But isn’t this the same with the Chat of Copilot? What is the crucial difference here?

i have cursor on the left and vscode on the right… I been going back and forth letting @workspace copilot try to change code… then paste that query to cursor and give it a shot… cursor seems to win most of the time so then I need to copy the pieces from ther eto my vscode… then I close cursor ai … and repeat
