    I believe this feature would be transformative for teams and remote work.

    Group Chats have chatrooms - ability to join and drop at will, chatroom never closes.

    Pinging someone for a call is disruptive.
    Calls and Scheduled meetings is not how natural conversations in the workplace always start. Often you join a group of people already talking or start a conversation and those interested join. This would give remote workers the ability to see someone hanging out and join them to talk or share ideas. This would remove the conversational friction remote work has injected.

    Use case:
    I'm a developer. We have a dev chat where we post issues and questions.
    Having the ability to naturally transition to a chatroom during a text conversation and have other devs see that and join if they wish would remove so much friction from conversation and allow us to pop in and out and get questions answered more quickly.

    Currently the only solution to this would starting a group call, this would include people not interested in the conversation (so it's not often done) making the barrier of entry to conversation much higher.
