In my calendar app such at outlook, I click on a URL to join the a hangout. (Note that from my point of view there was a user click to start the call here). The calendar app does whatever they do to cause the browser to launch that URL. Then the browser joins the call to hangout with out any more clicks.

As I understand "engagement gestures", a popup would be blocked.  But
it's only the "popup" (i.e., the gUM prompt) that would be blocked in
this example.  With a persistent permission, that prompt doesn't get
triggered, so the site should be able to get media immediately.
