We are bringing Copilot and new Microsoft AI experiences to the Windows PC. Today, Microsoft took the first step to unify our AI capabilities as Microsoft Copilot, providing a consistent look and feel across our products. Available as a side pane in Microsoft applications like Microsoft 365 and Edge, and on your Windows taskbar, the Copilot icon will be a consistent experience and entry point.

When this will happen:

The new Copilot experience will start to show up in the coming weeks and months, and we will add more connections and capabilities over time. New AI experiences in Windows will roll out gradually, beginning with the preview of Copilot in Windows in the September 26th optional preview update for Windows 11, version 22H2.

What you need to do to prepare:

If you would like your end users to have access to new Windows 11, version 22H2 features as soon as possible, you can use the newly-announced policy to enable optional updates for managed devices.
