Contact Group Issue in TEAM Chat
I have created several contact lists for various groups. I cannot figure out how to start a chat / send a message to individual GROUPS / Contacts. Please fix this as I would think the point of creating a Contact list is to enable users to quickly and easily send messages to a select group of people.
Switch to Slack, Teams is terrible...

Pointless exercise, time wasted. Deadline missed.
Distribution lists (contacts) ate surely a basic function. Please pleasr sort out. We are an organisation of 2,500 staff and this is a blocker.
I have come across the same thing. so frustrating...

I agree... couldnt figure out how to do this and couldve sworn I had done it before... probably as in Skype for Business...
Skype contact group allows to interact/chat with all the users within a group but same thing is missing from the Chat contact groups.
I hope this is the most important feature which got misses as everyone will move from Skype to Teams and will prefer the chat option from a contact group.

I agree - I can't see the functionality in contact groups without being able to start a group chat with a few clicks - the current method of adding individuals one by one seems labour intensive.
There are many circumstances where the creation of a Team isn't appropriate but a simple contact group would be perfect for end users to quickly initiate a group chat.

I just came across this too. Such a strange thing to not be included.
