Windows 8.1 People App

Microsoft announced at it’s annual BUILD developer conference that many of the core apps included in Windows 8.1 will receive an update which will be available in the RTM later this year. Today, screenshots of said update have leaked onto the web, revealing the new changes coming to the People and Calendar apps.

Update: It appears Microsoft have released official screenshots of these new apps, check them out here!<
