Last week, Microsoft released the first Windows 10 Insider Preview build (16170) from the Redstone 3 development branch. After spending some time with the new build, some people noticed there are hidden and disabled options in it, including the MyPeople feature which was first introduced back in October 2016 and was later cut from Windows 10 Creators Update.

It has some rough edges and the user experience is a bit ambiguous, which has possibly been the reason for its removal from Creators Update.
