– Microsoft is planning to bring its AI Copilot to Windows 10 in an upcoming update.
– Windows 10 still has a large user base of around a billion users worldwide.
– The functionalities of Copilot will be largely the same across Windows 10 and 11.
– The addition of Copilot to Windows 10 will help promote it to developers and expand its user base.
– There is no concrete release date for the Windows 10 Copilot release, but it is expected to be soon.
– Microsoft recently released Microsoft 365 Copilot, which integrates AI into popular office software tools.
– The launch of Microsoft 365 Copilot has been controversial due to the high cost for enterprises to use it.
Despite originally being released in July 2015, and supplanted by a newer version in October 2021, Windows 10 is still estimated to have around a billion users worldwide, making it a huge potential user base for Microsoft Copilot.
Windows 10 Copilot
Sources speaking to Windows Central reported that, similar to Windows 11, Microsoft Copilot will see a new button added to the taskbar in Windows 10. This will allow users to quickly launch the AI-powered tool, which can provide a huge range of services ranging from helping write emails to recommending a TV show to watch.
It’s expected that the functionalities of Copilot across Windows 10 and 11 will be largely the same, including plugin compatibility across both versions, which could be a huge boost for users upgrading their devices.
The move should also help promote Copilot to developers, with a potential user base of over a billion set to prove much more appealing that the estimated current 400 million on Windows 10.
There’s no concrete release date for the Windows 10 Copilot release, but we shouldn’t think users will have to wait too long, given the incredibly positive response initially seen by its Windows 11 launch.
However the launch has proved quite controversial, as in order to use Microsoft 365 Copilot, enterprises must commit to buying 300 seats at minimum, which will see them spending at least $9,000 per month just for generative AI, or $19,800 per month in conjunction with a Microsoft 365 E3 license.
