Yes, I figured out how to create a group, but you cannot initiate a chat with that group. The prompt says you can enter the name of a group, but it does not recognize the saved group. There are many times where cross team members just need to check in on items, but aren't really working on a project together that would warrant a channel. Skype has this functionality.
We are now preparing for the roll out of Tasks in Teams which will integrate additional features integrating To-Do and Planner. This includes additional list views that also extend to tabs in teams. Further announcements about additional integration in our overall Tasks coherence effort will follow.
You can follow the rollout via our Roadmap item: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=57213. To see a preview of the experience, please visit https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.
