Programmatically set channel in Channel List (v3 beta.2)

Currently using v3 beta.2 UI Kit.

Is there a way to programmatically set the channel that’s highlighted in the Channel List?

I had thought that assigning the channelUrl to a variable in the ChannelList component would change it but I’m not seeing any action.

It looks like internally the Channel List is using this dispatch action on user click of a channel from the list (sendbird-uikit-react/reducers.js at develop-v3 · sendbird/sendbird-uikit-react · GitHub) but I don’t see a clean way to do the same in my code.
