People view

The People View in Lightroom for mobile (Android) recognizes and groups photos of the same person in a cluster. You can easily browse through the photos of any particular person using the People View. The People View in Lightroom for mobile (Android) is disabled by default, for new users.

When I access People view, why does Lightroom for mobile (Android) display 'No People Found Yet'?

The No People Found Yet screen message is displayed when Lightroom is still analyzing all your photos to find people or when there aren't any people in your photos.
