Multi-window for chats and more
I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.
As we announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019 this morning, we are excited to confirm that Multi-window capabilities are coming to Microsoft Teams, and will start rolling out to the public ring early next year!
Alex & the Teams team
We have been forced to move to teams and this is really annoying me. Please hurry!
Our company is waiting for this feature before we go full Teams only mode. Will this out Q1 or Q2 as we need to plan accordingly? Thanks.
I'm with David and others on this one, it is very disruptive. Any update on the release date please?
David Baker commented
Can we please know when you are planning to release this - ASAP would be great. We have just switched wholesale from Skype to Teams and the productivity drag of only being able to have one thing open at a time is insane. Every time someone messages me I have to stop work on documents shared in the Team channels until the chat ends. The current setup is a bit like having Outlook be only able to have one window open at a time.
We've used Lync then Skype for years and just started migrating. The amount of screen real estate taken up by this single window UI is absurd. Being able to pop-out chats to their own tabbed window a la Skype is a much much better UI decision. Teams now reminds me of Slack (which I also cannot stand to use because of this).
Just saw a new commercial on TV selling Teams this weekend - maybe stop running the add and divert the monies saved to getting this fixed? and then start running the ad again?
where is the Article on the roadmap? https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams&searchterms=multi#owRoadmapMainContent
PLease give us an update on this, currently it is not on the Microsoft 365 roadmap!
As a company, we have just migrated to Teams and it is frustrating that I have to keep going backwards and forwards to different, teams / chats etc and I can't open multiple tabs. I want to be working on a team and be able to have a chat with someone at the same time!

This is will be a game changer for how we use Teams. Having this functionality will provide a great improvement for privacy & information security when we're sharing a screen and presenting Teams Meeting and Chat content.
Anxiously awaiting this capability!
Hello - is there any update on this? I can't see it on the roadmap? Thanks
Where is the countdown, cant wait any more!! Please please release it now!
Hello - do you have an update on this? It's a very important capability.

Any update on a timeline for when this will be implemented?

This is really really really needed.
We need more transparency with this. MS you announced this almost a year ago. We are trying to plan a roll out of Teams to replace Skype; however, we cannot do this until this feature is available. Please give us more detail.
Gus Lopez commented
Thank goodness this is on the works because it's essential if MS is pushing for adoption of Teams. Users have to work around it use Chrome (A Google product) in order to emulate basic OOTB Windows functionality on this system.
Ability to pop out conversation and meeting windows
Great! Is there a date for this rollout and availability? We have several meetings that need this capability starting at the end of Jaruary 2020.
