Windows 10 – Redstone 16184 early features for SEP-2017 release 

As documented below, some very early features have been announced for Microsoft Windows 10 Redstone currently scheduled for September 2017.

Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 ‘Redstone 3’ test build, No. 16184, adds back a feature that Microsoft cut from the Creators Update back in January 2017: My People.  My People allows users to pin specific people (current limit is three) to the taskbar; view multiple communication apps together; and choose apps that users prefer for chatting.

The Share capability is not yet ready for testing with My People, according to Microsoft’s April 28 blog post. To test My People, users need to have the latest Windows Store versions of Skype, Mail and People apps on their device.

Microsoft also is rolling out a new Windows 10 Mobile build for the handful of Windows Phone devices that are still in active support and can run Creators Update and beyond. That new Fast Ring test build is 15208. Today’s new test builds include changes and fixes in both versions. Microsoft officials said last week that Redstone 3 will begin rolling out in September 2017.
