The October 2023 non-security preview update is now available. These optional non-security previews are released only for Windows 10, version 22H2 and Windows 11, version 22H2. Information about the contents of this update is available from the release notes, which are accessible from the Windows 11 and Windows 10 update history pages.

Highlights for the Windows 11, version 22H2 update:
This update adds a preview of centralized AI assistance, called Copilot in Windows. This makes Windows 11 the first PC platform to add centralized AI assistance to help you get things done.
This update gives a richer preview when you hover over files under Recommended on the Start menu. For this first release, thumbnails will not be available for all files.
Starting in this update, desktop labels appear when you move between desktops in Task View (WIN + CTRL + left or right arrows). New sliding animations will also show when you change your desktops.
This update introduces the Windows Backup app. Use it to quickly get your current PC backed up and ready to move to a new PC.
Passkeys are a simple and more secure replacement for passwords when you sign in to a website or application that supports them. You can now go to any app or website that supports passkeys to create a passkey that uses Windows Hello.
