Copilot, Microsoft’s virtual assistant powered by artificial intelligence, will soon arrive on Windows 10. The Redmond firm has just confirmed it, indicating that it will initially be deployed in Preview to Insiders.
It’s now official, Microsoft will deploy its Copilot on Windows 10. The rumor that has been circulating for a few days has just been confirmed by the Redmond company itself, through a blog post intended for members of its Insider program.
Microsoft has obviously chosen security by finally deciding to offer its artificial intelligence-boosted assistant on its old operating system, support for which is supposed to end on October 14, 2025. It must be said that it seemed very It’s difficult for Microsoft to do without this gigantic pool, with Windows 10 currently counting more than a billion active users, compared to 400 million for Windows 11.

Copilot soon available in Preview on Windows 10
While Microsoft has not yet given any availability date, the company has indicated that it will launch its “Copilot in Windows (in preview) for devices running Windows 10 22H2 in Home and Pro editions. The Copilot button will be displayed on the far right of the screen in the taskbar, and will open, as on Windows 10, in a side pane to the right of the screen.
To benefit from it, Insiders will need to have installed update KB5032278 in the Release Preview channel. Above all, they must have a compatible Windows 10 22H2 machine. To run its Copilot on Windows 10, Microsoft requires that you have at least 4 GB of RAM, and a screen supporting a minimum 720p HD definition.
Microsoft will begin rolling out Copilot to Windows 10 “in the near future.” To be sure to be among the first served, the company suggests activating the “Receive the latest updates as soon as they become available” in Windows Update. The deployment of Copilot will be done gradually over the coming months. The Redmond firm also indicates that it will inform all Insiders, on its dedicated blog, as soon as the deployment of the virtual assistant has started.
A reprieve for Windows 10?
If nothing is yet certain, the arrival of Copilot on Windows 10 could well allow the operating system to play overtime. While Microsoft had announced the end of its support for the end of 2025, the OS could ultimately continue to receive, in addition to Copilot, other major updates. Microsoft would indeed consider continuing to do its utmost to ensure that the billion active Windows 10 users benefit from an up-to-date operating system, with new features. The next few months are therefore likely to be decisive for the future of the OS.
