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.

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.

I‘m really looking forward to seeing this function of contacts grouping. It's will be more convenient to manage contacts. All my family and friends also expect for it.

I want to be able to categorize my contacts. Like friends and family and business partners.
Also in my business, i want to be able to categorize contacts like marketing, sales, or by different skills.

Final straw for me. Skype product has gone downhill since it was acquired by Microsoft. I concur with other Commenters, version 7 was the most useful version, garbage since.
sure doesn't feel as if we are being heard
quite regularly, people contact me on skype... and, because you've decided what's most important to me, i don't see their messages. what works best is the way it was in version 7. please restore that feature

Please bring back feature of creating and managing groups of contact
As user i want to create and manage separate groups of my Contacts
So i always will be able to display only needed group of contacts (e.g. friends, colleges from my Company or Project, etc)
You REMOVED this function, something I know existed considering I was FORCED to update from 7.36 just yesterday, but maybe just give us back the simple tool of separating contacts and group chats into different lists allowing us to easily and effectively limit what we see in our contacts to only what we need and find them without any form of difficulty.
Is this one too much to ask? To have the simple choice to keep my stuff organized and in lists so I can keep things easy to find and separate?
A lot of people use skype for Work / Project Communication. It would be much easier to be able to organize group chats & contacts under respective categories.
v Category 1: Company A
- GroupChat 1
- GroupChat 2
- GroupChat 3
v Category: Company Team
- Contact 1
- Contact 2
- Contact 3
You used to have a feature where you can categorize or group your contacts in a list. For example, if you have four contacts named Supplier 1, 2, 3, 4, in the past you can create a contact list and group all 4 suppliers under the name Suppliers.
However, there is no such feature on the latest Skype version.
This is such a basic and simple function that needs to be implemented as it was in the past to save time, free up clutter, and strengthen the manageability of voluminous contacts.
Please let me know when this option becomes available hopefully in the next update.
Thank you very much!
