Microsoft is, of course, already working on the next release for Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 2. There hasn’t been much information released about this yet, but people are still speculating. One guess centers around the team currently focusing on completely changing the structure of the OneCore feature of Windows 10. Also, it might be adding some new features to the Mobile SKU.

Windows Central reported some smaller changes Microsoft is planning to introduce. One of these is a feature called People Bar, which might see the light of the day along with the release of Redstone 2 in the beginning of 2017.

The People Bar looks like it an upgraded version of the old People Hub functionality. It also borrows something from the Windows Task Bar, so this feature will seem familiar to many users. The People Bar seems to be a revamped version of the Pinned Contacts found in Windows 10 on the Start Menu or on the Windows Phones.

The best part is that instead of keeping the contacts somewhere in the Start Menu, you will have it ready on the Task Bar whenever you need it. Moreover, you will enjoy support from various communication apps and services, such as Office, Skype or GroupMe, in order to get in touch with your contacts faster and easier.

All in all, the next update for Windows 10 seems to be a big hit. Besides the People Bar feature, it will also introduce a blue light functionality. Moreover, it seems that Redstone 2 will also come alongside a hardware update that will hit the stores in 2017.
