We have been using Stride for couple of days now. I just noticed that I cannot send a direct message to multiple people. I want just to start a temporary discussion with specific persons and not go to the channel.
Are you planning to offer this feature?
So here's the update - I was confused before because this is a feature that we have internally, but not one that has been released yet because it requires more testing.

All good things come to an end - thanks to all our customers and partners who have been along the Hipchat and Stride journey with us. As of Feb 15th 2019, Hipchat Cloud and Stride have reached ...
