Ability to create custom contact lists
The ability to group contacts in custom lists such "Friends", "Family" etc, and be able to show those within the app.
Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request. We have thought this through and due to other high priority engineering that the product needs we decided to prioritize other user-requested items for now. Please keep continue supporting this Idea and we will review it again later. I’ll let you know if anything changes.

You're wasting your time. MS aren't interested in what people think about skype or even how popular it is. Teams is where they're looking to grow.
Buying skype was merely an excercise in eliminating the competition and they've never had any long-term goals for it, aside from moving users to a paid-for product.

Even Telegram can do this. It will be great if we can do it here too.
Yes to this one but as I get to know my contacts personally, It would also be able to say put them in a city or country folder so that I can easily ask them things about topics of issue in their country or city or possibly meet up with them if I'm nearby, or if I want start a group call with folks that are in that same group (whatever it is, see their status ie in the program, online or offline and decide to call them together.
It's an abomination that you acquire a perfectly working product that was growing with organic virality and destroy it by removing a core basic feature. Billions of dollars in revenue and completely tone-deaf to what users want. What a shame.

Add the possibility to separate and organize contacts by groups. It's an option that skype had before.
It used to be there. Why did you remove it, and now we have to beg you to bring it back? Even the Contacts app on my Android phone has it! Even regular, non-smart phones had it.
Exactly! Why this essential feature has been discontinued?
Now if I want to make a group call for my students I have to scroll down and choose them one by one among my personal friends, because everything is bundled up together.
No one give a flying **** on our request. For them organizing contact it's not important. Every chat app has the option to organize the contacts. Skype why doesn't ?
Unbelievable such a basic fuctionality is not supported. Managing contacts is extremely important, if not even critical for an everyday use. If I would be a program manager/developer it would be on a top of my priorities with a due date set up to yesterday, together with a heartfelt apology to all users.
Organizing my contacts in groups is an extremely useful and time saving function. Now I have to take time every morning to create this groups and manually add every contact. As an employer you are making your business customer pay an employee every day to set up the groups before actually being able to start work. If you add up approx 12mins every work day, its 1 hour a week. So 4 hours a month are wasted on doing this when a simple contact group and a click (4 secs) would do the same job. This is a vital business item.
MAKE CONTACT GROUPS SO YOU CAN INVITE A GROUP OF PEOPLE IN ONE SINGLE CLICK
I can't believe it's still not there
Wow, I can't believe it's still not there. How come a messenger doesn't allow to organize contacts? You made skype suck. Thanks Microsoft!
We could create group of the contacts, where I can name this group and include and remove contacts.
In the classic version of Skype, I had different groups in my contacts: WORK, SCHOOL, FRIENDS, and so on.
In the new Skype, all contacts are combined into one common group.
You can add the ability to sort contacts by groups as in the classic version ?

I wish you had folders so I can group my contacts better. for example, I have Centers, Vendors, Clients, Broker, Personal and if skype had folders I could go to
the folder I want and make contact with them easily
Please open the option to manage my contacts by groups.
For example: “work” “family” “friends” “company” etc

Hey, @"Petr at Skype", @Admin - listen to your customers! If you prioritize some weird UI instead of our needs, you will loose us!
