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.
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.
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!

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

дебилы, верните группы, вообще чтоли без мозгов?
I have exactly the same case as most people here. I have hundreds of contacts for work and I need to be able to organize them. Please make it so.
If you google this, you'll actually find an old tutorial from Skype explaining how to set up contact lists. Why would you remove this feature?
It seems that MS people don't know for whom they intend Skype. Young people don't use it anymore having switched to other apps. Old people have up to 10 contacts and don't need this feature. But those who use Skype for business and have hundreds of contacts are left with the garbage that the current version is.
Ah, M$-speak for f@#k you, you're only the customer...
contact list or i am going discord

This really is a bonehead maneuver. Parity with pre-MS product and with the Windows version of the current product seems like a very basic MUST.

How was this not even carried over is beyond my imagination!
I'd like to be able to group them so that it's easier to see at a glance which are the contacts eg from a particular company that I want to have a group chat with

imam previse kontakta da bih pamtio koji je za sta.
zato imam vise kontakt listi koje sam koristio godinama da bi sada Skype to iskljucio.
Pisem kao budala svaki dan kao da trazim od skypa ubace ne znam nija sta komplikovano a ne opciju koju je imao jos pre 10 godina.
Niko ne odgvara vec kao budale glasamo za novu opciju.
