Microsoft meant to include its new My People sharing and communication app in the Windows 10 Creators Update, but had to postpone it because it simply stood no chance of being ready in time.

To let users access all of the contacts/people in Windows 10, Microsoft has added a button which makes it easier to start a conversation whenever needed.

View multiple communication apps together and filtered to each person on the taskbar.

To ensure that My People launches correctly, however, you'll need to download the most recent versions of the Skype, Mail, and People apps from the Store.

However the most striking thing is that this integration seems to be going well and along with the renewal of the user interface thanks to Project NEON, are perhaps the two most important new features of the Redstone 3 update of Windows 10.

When you first start using the feature, Microsoft will make a couple of suggestions regarding the people you should have on your taskbar, The number is limited to 3 at present, so you can have a maximum of three buddies sitting on your taskbar for now.

Windows 10 is a service, meaning it was built in a very different way from its predecessors so it can be regularly updated with not just fixes but new features, too.

Of course, build 16184 provides the usual list of changes, improvements, and fixes. The update for mobile is pretty modest and solves issues like an extra 20 second added to the shutdown process, when you tried to power off your device after switching from one network to another.

A small percentage of devices may experience text message backup loss related to backup and recovery of the messaging database.
