62:9Ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo itha noodiya lilssalati min yawmi aljumuAAati faisAAaw ila thikri Allahi watharoo albayAAa thalikum khayrun lakum in kuntum taAAlamoona

62:9 O You who have chosen to be graced with belief! When the call for Salaat (carrying out Divine commands) is announced on the Day of the Congregation, hasten to the remembrance of God (through the Qur‟an) and leave your commerce. That is for your own good if you use your knowledge to understand.
62:10 And when the commands have been understood, disperse freely in the land and seek to implement God‟s bounty (His commands). And remember God (His laws) often so that you may prosper. [62:4]
62:11 Yet when they see some bargain or entertainment, they rush to it, and leave you standing. Say, “What is with God is better than all entertainment and all bargain. God is the Best of providers.”

From the above we can see that instructions need to be given to people and for them to implement them when they leave. It is not a day of prayers.

My understanding is that the community can be called to a gathering so that matters that need to be discussed and debated/resolved can be addressed. It is not a specific day, but any day the community leader decides something is too important for him to implement himself.

The idea of a specific day, Friday, was copied from the Jews [Saturday] and Christians [Sunday] and has no authority from the Quran to make this a ‘special’ day.
