Windows 10 Preview Build 17063 for PC brings an improved My People experience to Windows 10 Insiders on the Fast Ring.
My People lets you pin a contact to the taskbar to let you interact with them easily. So for example, if you have pinned your close friend to the taskbar, you will be able to share files with them easily simply by dragging-and-dropping a file. In addition to that, when you click on their profile from the taskbar, a flyout will open up where you can interact with them via a couple of different apps such as Outlook Mail or Skype. When you click on the Outlook Mail app, My People will start a new draft email with that contact, and when you click on the Skype tile, it will simply start a conversation with that person on Skype.
The new improvements, based on user feedback include, include the ability to re-arrange contacts via drag and drop (above), the ability to set up to 10 contacts in the taskbar and animations for the rest which overflowed which looks like below.
The My People flyout now also includes fluent design.
Microsoft is working to increase app discoverability and will now suggest apps to users (this can be switched off.)
Insiders can download Build 17063 now.
