I had thought this should be enabled for everyone at this point... but I still don't see it in any of my accounts (one regular and two Apps)

I have disabled all the extensions that could have messed with Gmail, and a few Labs, just in case.

Even my non-techie wife, using a non-english configuration has it. Any ideas on getting it to work?

It's a phased roll-out; you'll just have to be patient. My Google Apps account (for work) got it within days of launch. My personal Gmail account only got it a couple of days ago. – Al E. Jul 8 '11 at 13:06
@AlEverett: that's a shame. Latest update from the official Gmail blog on June 10th said rollout should be complete "in the next couple weeks". It's been a month. – Diego Mijelshon Jul 8 '11 at 14:45
Apparently, I just have to keep waiting. – Diego Mijelshon Jul 9 '11 at 17:00

mail settings -> General -> people widget

Is where the setting for the people widget. Make sure Show the people widget is checked

@Diego Like @AL Everett says in his comment its a phased roll out (i didn't mention this before as I figured they'd of finished by now) – Matt Jul 8 '11 at 13:10
