One of the biggest missing features of the Windows 10 Creators Update is My People. Fortunately, the app is now available for Windows 10 Redstone 3 Insiders on the Fast Ring.

Windows 10’s My People app

My People was billed as an essential feature of the recently launched Creators Update. Unfortunately, when the Creators Update launched, the app was nowhere to be found. Now it’s slated to launched with the Redstone 3 update later this year. But with Microsoft’s release of Windows 10 Build 16184 to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring, Insiders can get a taste of My People right now.

While the My People experience in Windows 10 is still not ready, it includes the majority of the features Microsoft promised earlier this year. Currently, you can pin people to your taskbar and interact with them in an effective and easier way. Once someone is pinned, you can to start a conversation with them via Skype or even send them an email via the Outlook Mail app in Windows 10, among many other things.

Shoulder Taps is still missing

One of the most interesting features from My People is called Shoulder Taps and while it’s not available yet, it features a nice animation for emojis whenever someone sends you one in an app like Skype, for instance. This, and all its other cool features, will arrive sometime in the near future with a new build.
