Microsoft has announced that Copilot will gradually become available on Windows 10 Home and Pro computers through the Windows Insider Program. This confirmation aligns with earlier reports. Users opting for early access can enable the ‘Get the latest updates as soon as they are available’ option in Windows Update and install the preview update from November 2023.

Initially, the preview will only be offered in selected markets such as North America, Asia, and South America. Microsoft plans to expand availability to more regions over time, although it remains unclear whether the EU will be included.

Copilot was initially introduced in Windows 11, and Microsoft hasn’t disclosed plans for an update for Windows 10. Integrating Copilot into Windows 10 would significantly broaden its reach since many users continue to use the older operating system.

Chat-Based Interface

Within Windows 10, users will access Copilot by clicking on the icon in the taskbar, opening a docked chat window. They can input requests in natural language. The assistant can respond, accept voice commands, and execute tasks within applications.

While the Windows 10 version offers similar core functions, according to Microsoft, it lacks some capabilities present in Windows 11. For instance, Copilot on Windows 10 cannot yet open applications or customize user settings.

Enhancing Productivity

Microsoft positions Copilot as a means to enhance productivity on Windows. Leveraging artificial intelligence and natural language processing, Copilot aims to aid users in multitasking and completing more tasks by automating routine functions.

With support for Windows 10 extended until October 2025, Copilot’s introduction to the older platform will reach a substantial number of private and business customers.
