The potential arrival of AI Copilot on Windows 10 could catalyze developers to create additional platform plugins. The report indicates that the AI Copilot is expected to offer comparable features to its Windows 11 counterpart. This aligns with Microsoft’s plan to enhance the functionality of Windows 10 by introducing additional features.
