With Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709), Microsoft introduced a new feature called My People. The feature, which was supposed to ship with Creators Update for Windows 10, makes it easier for you to connect with your family and friends. Using the feature, you can chat with your important contacts and share photos with them right from the taskbar.
The My People feature adds a people bar to Windows 10 taskbar. When you click on the People icon or People bar on the taskbar, Windows 10 displays your important contacts. By default, Windows 10 displays most frequently interacted contacts in the people’s list.
The My People makes it easier to quickly connect with your contacts to have a chat or share a photo using your favorite communication apps for Windows 10. In short, the My People feature helps you to access your contacts and conversations quickly and easily.
