At Build 2017 in May, Microsoft announced that it’s bringing a new Timeline feature to Windows 10 which will make it much easier for users to keep track of their apps and documents across devices. Timeline was supposed to work with Windows 10’s Pick Up Where You Left Off feature to allow users to sync their work across all of their Windows 10 devices, as well as their Android and iPhone devices in some cases. It was one of the coolest demos Microsoft showed off at Build 2017, and it certainly was one of the most anticipated features of the Fall Creators Update.
Timeline was expected to arrive with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update later this year — sometime around September/October. Well, that’s no longer the case.
Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore today confirmed on Twitter that Redmond is delaying Timeline in Windows 10 and it’s no longer coming with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. The company is currently planning on releasing the feature to Windows Insiders “shortly after” the Fall Creators Update is released publicly.
Correct. Timeline won't be in the Fall Creators Update. We're planning for it to be in early insider builds shortly after FCU is out.

This isn’t the first time Microsoft is delaying a major Windows 10 feature. Earlier this year, the software maker delayed the new MyPeople experience in Windows 10 which was supposed to arrive with the Creators Update but it’s now coming with the Fall Creators Update instead.
