Microsoft works to polish its People app up on Windows 10 and makes the People app keeps all of your contacts together, rather than keeping a separate list of contacts for different apps— for example, email contacts and messaging contacts. Once you've added contacts to the People app, you'll use the same contact information to send emails, chat, and share files and photos. Hence, if we could sync our Android phone contacts to the Windows 10 People App, it would bring enormous convenient to our daily life.
