My question is how much these phrases are formal and if we can use them in everyday speaking or not.

1. copy that
2. roger that

Thanks,

They are used in radio communications in the military/police. How were you planning to use them?

For example when my boss tells me to do something and I want to say I got your message. Can I say, roger that/copy that?
