Microsoft: Windows Autopatch now available for public preview

Microsoft said this week that Windows Autopatch, a service to automatically keep Windows and Microsoft 365 software up to date in enterprise environments, has now reached public preview.

Windows Autopatch automatically manages the deployment of Windows 10 and Windows 11 quality and feature updates, drivers, firmware, and Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise updates.

“The takeaway if you’re an IT admin? You can continue using the tools and processes you’re accustomed to for managing and deploying updates-or you can take a hands-off approach and let Windows Autopatch do it for you,” said Lior Bela, a Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft.

“Changing the way things get done, even when that change makes things easier, gives pause to most people who run large IT organizations. By joining the public preview, you’ll be able to get comfortable with Windows Autopatch and ready your organization to take advantage of the service at scale.”

Once set up for a tenant, the Windows Autopatch service will automatically break up the organization’s device fleet into four groups of devices described by Microsoft as testing rings.

Microsoft provides further info in the Windows Autopatch support documentation, including details on service eligibility, prerequisites, and features.
