Manage Friends Using Groups

manage friends using groups.

Instead of just having followers / Friends / favourites we should be able to add custom groups/filters for friends.
So we could group friends based on games, location, family or clans.

for example, I have recently added a few people to play on Froza 5.

if i've not played on forza for a couple of weeks i will have forgotten why I've added these people. but if I could group them id always know what game I've added them for.

[Mod Edit: This idea was merged with similar ideas from AJ west, xDaNGLeSx x13x and others. Thanks, everyone!]

    It’s been almost 2 years since I commented on this feature request last. PLEASE DO THIS SOON!!!

    I’m so tired of going through my friends list and asking myself, “where did I meet this dude again?” Or “what game did I used to play with this person?”

    I need a place where i Can customize a group so I can see all the people I met on Halo at once. Or all the people I met on CoD at once.

    A clear option to turn this on, with it defaulted to off would be nice for obvious privacy reasons otherwise I like the idea.

    This feature would be a nice one, and very handy too, I would also like to see plenty of options as to how we group our friends, such as real life friends, friends of family members, work colleges, an option to set your favorite games, and sort your friends on this, and plenty of other filters as well.

    I would add: In a club with thousands of people, I would like to see my friends and followers up at the top, so I can see them.

    Upcoming Club feature is good one, but this idea is still good because I can manage on my own way. I can categorize some of my friends as Forza players even if they don't join these kind of Clubs.

    I am excited for the coming Groups function! Although 99% of my friends on Xbox are friends in real life, so it isn't too hard yet. :)

    YES!!! This is a pretty common thing for most online social sites. I'm really surprised that it has not been implemented on XBOX yet.

    With the friends limit so high, you almost need to have a way to group them. Being able to create a customized group list would be immensely helpful!
