Planning for Copilot in Windows 10
Today we start to roll out Copilot in Windows (in preview) to eligible* Windows 10 devices.
When will this happen:
Copilot in Windows (in preview) is available today for eligible devices running the Home or Pro editions of Windows 10, version 22H2 via the Release Preview Channel of the Windows Insider Program. Devices on version 22H2 of Windows 10 Enterprise or Education, or Pro devices managed by organizations, will be included in a later rollout phase.
How this will affect your organization:
If your organization is considering a rollout of Copilot in Windows to all or some employees, this will help you evaluate and extend that experience to any workers still using Windows 10 devices.
What you need to do to prepare:
We will roll out this experience in phases using Controlled Feature Rollout (CFR) technology over several months. When Copilot is rolled out to managed devices, you will be able to manage Copilot access in Windows 10 using your preferred mobile device management (MDM) solution (such as Microsoft Intune) or Group Policy. For more details, please see our documentation on how to manage Copilot in Windows
. (Note that when you remove access to Copilot for some users, they will not be able to use it and its icon will not appear on the taskbar.)
Note: Copilot in Windows is currently available in preview in select global markets. It is our intention to add additional markets over time.
*Devices require > 4GB RAM and Display adapter that supports +720p resolution. If we detect that devices in your organization may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we may put a safeguard hold in place and not offer Copilot in Windows until that issue is resolved.
