Rooms and Groups are one of the ways  that Windows Phone lets its users stay in touch with people that matter the most. You can add people to a Group and be in touch with all of them, at once. The main advantage of groups is that, you can gt to see the social updates of all the people you add in the groups, at once. Groups are a little different from ‘Rooms’ on Windows Phone and you don’t have to invite people to add to a group.
