Group chat without creating a room for it?

I am looking for a basic feature which many chat tools have, like Slack or Skype: The ability to chat with several people in a group without creating a room for that purpose.

Does HipChat have this feature? If not, is it planned to be implemented?

As a linked suggestion stated, people are using other platforms on the side so they can have group chats without creating rooms. Surely this is a threat to a goal of the product.

Thanks for you time,

Ben
