An Official Group can only be created by an Org admin or a Team admin in the Admin Console. These Official Groups have admins assigned to them, can have Broadcasts sent to them, have custom Clear settings, and are depicted as having a small blue checkmark above the group name in the group’s Settings page(link).

None of the aforementioned capabilities apply to an ad-hoc group created by an end user from within the Zinc app. Any user can create an ad-hoc group through the Zinc app by starting a new conversation with multiple other users.
