At Build 2017, Microsoft announced the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. One of the features that was announced to be included in this update was the “Timeline and Pick up where you left off” feature. This feature allows users to sync their work across all of their Windows 10, Android and iPhone devices. It definitely one of the most interesting and exciting features of the Fall Creators Update.
While Insiders are already testing many of the new features of the Fall Creators Update, Timeline is not part of the Insider Builds yet. The reason for that is that the features has been postponed, as Joe Belfiore confirmed today via Twitter.
Correct. Timeline won't be in the Fall Creators Update. We're planning for it to be in early insider builds shortly after FCU is out.

Instead, Timeline will be part of Insider Build following the release of the Fall Creators Update. Non-Insiders will have to wait for the feature until the release of the Redstone 4 Windows 10 Update.
This is not the first time that Microsoft is delaying a major Windows 10 feature. The MyPeople experience was supposed to arrive with the Windows 10 Creators but has been delayed to the Fall Creators Update which will be released in September/October.
Microsoft really needs to learn that it is not good to announce features and then delay them. Instead, they should focus on features that will really be part of an update.
