A lot of those who are passionate about tech out there like to believe that Windows 10 is already dead and buried since Windows 11 became more popular and that it’s only a matter of time before Microsoft stops offering support for the operating system that came out way back in 2015. While they might be right with the latter part, the majority of Windows users out there are still not impressed by what Windows 11 can do and still prefer clinging to Windows 10.
Regardless of how convincing Microsoft spokesmen try to be in trying to make people upgrade to Windows 11, the fact cannot be neglected. As long as over a billion PCs out there still use Windows 10, it clearly means that Microsoft can’t ignore the 8-year-old operating system. In fact, it would be reasonable to assume at this point that the Redmond-based company will consider prolonging the support for Windows 10. Initially, Microsoft plans to stop the support after just two years, but Windows 11 has not conquered nearly as many hearts as its predecessor has.
As a result, what’s for sure is that Microsoft decided to add an AI feature to the good old Windows 10. It’s none other than the Copilot feature, which is also up and running for Windows 11.
Join the Windows Insider Program of Windows 10 to get Copilot
XDA reveals that if you’re using Windows 10, you will soon receive the Copilot AI feature, which is already available for Windows 11. Those Windows 10 users who are willing to benefit from the forthcoming feature will have to join the Release Preview channel of the Windows Insider Program.
To be more precise, Windows 10 version 22H2 devices are those receiving the Copilot feature. This feature in Planner has the power to enable the use of natural language to give life to various tasks, goals, and plans or answer questions about workload, progress, priorities, and more.
It is even possible to see a preview of the Copilot feature in Windows 10 without being a member of the Windows Insider Program. To do so, you need to install the November 2023 non-security preview update, and then go to Windows Update and mark the box that says Get the latest updates as soon as they’re available.
Microsoft is far from done when it comes to improving Windows 10, confirming that the company still wants to make the 8-year-old operating system better. Microsoft is also preparing to add a special toggle that says, “Get the latest updates as soon as they are available,” which means that Windows 10 users will have the chance to grab the latest features ASAP.
Windows 10 receiving an AI feature is probably the best indicator that Microsoft is determined to take the operating system seriously, even in the midst of trying to promote its successor, Windows 11. Nobody can ignore that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the latest trend in town for many, and that it will keep becoming better and better in the near future.
