Add Option to Display Status in Contacts List
In the settings, add an option which causes Status text to display adjacent to or beneath (maybe both) the name and picture of a Contact in your Favorites.
At the same time, it would be nice to show how long they've been at that status like Skype for Business showed: Out-of-office for 2 days, or Away for 15 minutes; there's a big difference: If it's lunchtime and their status says they've been away for 15 minutes, I know there's a good chance they'll be back soon. I know this information is available under their name if I hover over the contact's icon, but I want to be able to see this information immediately for all of my contacts as I visually scan down my contacts list like I could do with Skype for Business. Some people don't WANT a cleaner interface... some people WANT more information available without having to dig for it.

By "(maybe both)" I mean that the position of the Status text could also be determined by the user.
