It’s too early to write off Windows 10, the operating system will get support for Copilot AI
Microsoft is still adding new features to Windows 10, announcing the integration of Copilot, an artificial intelligence assistant that was previously exclusive to Windows 11, ArsTechnica reports. The move is aimed at bringing Copilot to a wider audience, as Windows 10 remains the most used version of Windows worldwide. The update with Copilot will be available in the Windows Insider Release Preview channel for Windows 10 Home and Pro, but not for enterprise versions such as Enterprise and Education.
Copilot on Windows 10 requires a PC with at least 4GB of RAM and a 720p display. Initially, the rollout will target North American users, as well as users in parts of Asia and South America. However, it is planned to be released in other countries over time. With Copilot, Windows 10 users will be able to generate ChatGPT-based text and change system settings.
The November 10 preview update of Windows 10, which includes Copilot, also includes a number of bug fixes and the option to “Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available” in Windows Update. However, this update does not change the overall Windows 10 support schedule. Version 22H2 remains the last major release, and security updates for the operating system will end on October 14, 2025.
Despite the more demanding system requirements of Windows 11, a significant number of Windows 10 computers are unable to upgrade, making them obsolete. Yet Windows 10 still accounts for more than two-thirds of active Windows installations worldwide. By extending Copilot to Windows 10, Microsoft aims to make the service available to more users who might not otherwise use it, reflecting the company’s strategy to integrate artificial intelligence into all its products.
