If there are only 2 people in a chat conversation and you add a third person, there's no possibility for sharing the chat history. Is it possible to have that possibility?

@Maijala_Anu This is currently by design as we do not want to escalate a 1:1 conversation to a group chat and unintentionally share some personal communications in a 1:1 setting broadly. When a user tries to add a third member to a 1:1 chat it spins off a new group chat. We are looking into building a feature that allows users to bring over some of the chat history when escalating a 1:1 chat to group chat but we do not have an ETA for that. We intentionally do not want to add users to your personal 1:1 chat with someone and preserve it as a 1:1 chat forever.
