Windows 10 People app

The latest update for People app removes the hamburger menu

The update for People app will change its version to 10.1806.1821.0. It's biggest change is that it removes the much reviled hamburger menu, which when used expanded a list of actions such as the ability to add a new contact, filter the contact list, access settings, and see the existing contacts.  These actions have now been moved to the top right of the app for easier access.

Finally, the app has made changes to the back button.
