Office 365 Contact Lists are lists of individual email addresses linked by a shared list name and allows you to pick this list name when sending an email, saving you the time of adding lots of separate individual email addresses. (In the past these might have been called personal distribution groups.)

The new Office 365 feature - Office 365 Groups are groups of users who want to share an email address, an electronic work space and a calendar.

Office 365 Groups are designed for groups of users who want to collaborate on projects.
