People + email

People Hub

The People Hub is more than just an address book on your phone. It's a one-stop shop that keeps you up to date with your social networks and helps you stay in touch with the people you care about most.

The People Hub is more than an address book

Here's a quick rundown of the different sections of your People Hub.

  • What's new – Here's where you can check out all your contacts' latest updates, pulled together from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Bracing for an avalanche of posts, tweets, and pics? No worries—you can filter the info you see in the People settings.
  • Recent – Here you'll see—and get quick access to—the contacts you've viewed or communicated with most recently.
  • Together – Get to your Rooms and Groups and create new ones from here. Tap into a room to start a chat or see what's new in the calendar, notes, and photo album. Or open up a group to see the members' latest posts and pics.
  • All – This is your contact list. Just tap a name to call, text, chat, email, write on the person's Facebook Wall, or see their latest social updates and photos. The History view shows your recent calls and conversations with a contact—handy!


If you pin a contact, room, or group to Start, its Live Tile will show new updates and messages.
