Copilot for M365 -> access local/network files - > Any other options?

I have a question regarding the access of Copilot for M365 to local and network files and what other options I might have.

I've noticed that Copilot for Teams has access to OneDrive, but Copilot for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, for example, can only access SharePoint links. Can you confirm this?

I have also found that Copilot does not have access to local files or network files.

I once heard from an IT service provider that Microsoft is working on a copilot that would have access to local/network files. Is this true?

Since the current Copilot for M365 does not have access to local/network files, I would like to ask the following question: Is there another AI tool from a third-party provider that has access to local files and network files?
