In Android KitKat's 'People' application I was able to access my contacts per group assigned, as shown below using my Nexus 5:

The new 'Contacts' application since the Android Lollipop upgrade does not appear to include this functionality. It's reported to Google in issue #79803 and it appears lots of people are affected by this change.

What is an alternative to this? I'd really like to access my contacts again by their group.

There is an alternative option for users which can be found on the Play Store: Contacts Groups for Lollipop

According to this https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=79803 the only workaround is to install a new Contacts app (like Contact+).

Hope Google will bring this feature back in a future update.
