Need to transform public channel into private group

Is there a way to make a channel private, i.e. transform it into a private group, retaining all chat history?
I found no way to do this, and creating a new private group would mean loosing the chat history of the old channel and requiring all members to subscribe to the new channel…

Also, I find the naming confusing, channel vs. group, why not just use one?
