Ordering someone in the office to come to you may feel like you have authority but can damage their respect for you.
Instead, saying in a calm voice, "Would you mind if we chatted for a bit?" or "May I talk to you?" is more effective as people feel they can act of their free will.
Group chat is an important tool in the communications toolbox. It is valuable for special cases and less useful for general cases.
When used appropriately and sparingly, it's great. But it becomes a potential enemy when it systematically controls and diverts your attention away from doing great work.
