Microsoft began rolling out its new AI assistant for Windows earlier this year with the Windows 11 version 23H2 release, which adds a new Microsoft Copilot button directly to the Taskbar.
Microsoft has been putting its Copilot in front of every user it can, but there's still a large chunk of PC users on the older Windows 10 OS which hasn't seen any of Microsoft's recent AI additions.
That may soon be changing.
It is problematic that so many people are sticking with Windows 10. So Microsoft may have no other choice now thant to put AI into Windows 10 in the form of surprise update. Otherwise people wouldn't be using the AI.
According to my sources, Microsoft is planning to bring the Microsoft Copilot to Windows 10 in an update coming soon. By the end of 2023 or early 2024.
Just like Windows 11, this update to Windows 10 will place a Copilot button directly on the Windows 10 taskbar, which will open the exact same Copilot sidebar experience found on Windows 11. There is no reason for the system to not work on Windows 10 so compatibility reasons are not the reason to not include it.
