Home » Windows 10 My People feature won’t launch until after Creators Update rollout

For the past couple of months, Microsoft has been offering Windows 10 users glimpses of a slew of new features and enhancements coming with the Creators Update. The upcoming improvements to the desktop operating system include robust security features, 3D support, and the My People experience, which allows you to share things with others. However, the My People feature won’t be shipping until after the launch of the Windows 10 Creators Update in April.

Microsoft announced the delay of the My People experience in a new blog post that introduced the Windows Insider preview build 15014. The blog states:

“As we shared at our event in October, we’re excited to bring your people to the front and center of your computing experience in Windows with the My People experience. Our goal with Windows is to deliver experiences you’ll love and we’ve made the decision to hold this feature for the next major update to Windows.”

That means you won’t be able to get your hands on the My People experience until the release of Redstone 3, which will arrive by the end of 2017. If you are looking to share content directly with your contacts, you’ll have to wait a bit longer then.

With the My People feature, users will be able to connect with friends and family on the taskbar, streamline discussions in a single place inside Windows 10, and send content to others by adding contacts to the app-sharing dialogue. The feature also provides the ability to control the load of information through a set of filtering tools.

Right now, even Windows Insiders have not yet received the My People experience, which could mean the feature still has a long way to go before it rolls out to the Fast Ring. Will you be using My People as your default sharing tool once it rolls out later this year? Let us know!
