More Users of Windows 10 Can Now Experience Microsoft’s Copilot AI Assistant

Microsoft has begun expanding access to its Copilot assistant on Windows 10. The software giant initially made its new AI assistant accessible to Windows 10 Insiders on the Release Preview Channel last week. However, now, this feature is included in an optional update for Windows 10 (KB5032278) released by the company.

Despite Microsoft’s Cortana assistant being deprecated on Windows PCs, Copilot brings a more useful ChatGPT-like conversational AI to Windows 11 and Windows 10. Copilot appears as a Microsoft Edge window that opens on the right side of the screen and is built to be an everyday AI companion capable of answering questions, assisting in content creation, and enhancing productivity.

For Windows 10 users, Copilot shows up as a button on the right side of the taskbar. It has been mentioned that the AI assistant is currently missing the ability to customize preferences and settings or open Windows applications compared to Copilot on Windows 11.

In addition to Copilot, the optional Windows 10 update released by Microsoft yesterday adds the “Get the latest updates as soon as they are available” toggle in Windows Update, which was already available on Windows 11 for non-managed devices. Users will need to activate this toggle to access Copilot on Windows 10 early.

Microsoft has indicated that the AI assistant will only be available to a limited audience initially before being broadly deployed in the coming months. It is expected that the public release of Copilot on Windows 10 will continue later this month with the December Patch Tuesday update for the OS.
