It's not quite here, this is misadvertisement. After seeing something similar on Twitter I signed up and discovered Copilot Chat is an upcoming feature locked behind a waitlist

It's a tool which you need to have a solid understanding of. Otherwise it'll turn against you and produce snippets which you don't understand. After all, it'll turn back to fundamentals of coding anyway.

Nope. Github copilot isn't free unless you're a student or maintain a large opensource project.
