Custom message between peers in Azure Communication Services

I successfully created a working example of a group call using (Azure Communication Services).
But as I scroll through the pages, I can't find a way to emit/receive custom message (custom event) between clients...!

For example, in a group call of Bob, Alice, and Sia:

Bob emit "suggest-camera-on"
Alice & Sia would then receive the event and show a dialog asking "Do you want to turn on the camera"...!

How can I achieve this...?

    @Huy Hoàng Phan , To benefit the community summarizing our discussions from comments

    We do not currently support exchanging messages between peers in a group call.
    Once potential suggestion is to use ACS Chat SDK side by side with Calling, and exchange messages via that channel.
    -We discussed on this with our product engineering team internally- (thanks for creating the GitHub feedback item)

    Those are custom events (custom messages) as you mentioned, our product team is looking at adding such custom event in the near future. However, there is no ETA at this time. As soon as we have more information, we will update the GitHub feedback item.
