Double tap stopped working on my 950XL

The firmware update a few months back allowed my 950XL to open with double tap, but eventually the phone's apps (like all of them) stopped working, so I had to do a hard reset (ugh). Even though I'm on the Fast Insider ring, double tap doesn't do anything. Any ideas how to get it back?

Got my answer from the 2nd answer below - I didn't know it was enablable! Turned it back on and boom, there it is. Thanks!

could be a potential bug that is affecting DTTW . if hard reset didn't help wait or future builds and post this bug or upvote on feedback app if necessary. As the feature was enabled through a Firmware update , the device may require future firmware update to make it more reliable and steady on redstone 2 update.

in any case you wish to go back to public build, you could use windows device recovery tool to do that.
