Multi-window for chats and more
I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.
It has been three months since the last update, so checking in here to let you know this is still being actively worked on. I really appreciate your patience as we work on this.
I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays, and have a very Happy New Year!

Hello. Do you have any update or an expected timeline? This is an important feature for us and the users we support.
Please add a separate popup window featuer for Chat instead of just another tab in main App. Extremely important for working efficiently on Teams platform.

Can we please get pop-out windows for Teams. I was forced to switch over and this is a serious shortcoming.
David Hernandez commented
I have 2 screens and with a active call going on if i switch to chats my call window becomes minimized, i want the ability to still have a call fullscreen with a screenshare session but still be able to chat with other team members without having a tiny screen.

I just want to say I too would like popup windows for Teams chat. The side panel is very inefficient and it is very easy to accidently send a message to another person if you have multiple chats with that person participating. For example, I might have a group chat with John and a separate private chat with John. I can see John's name in the panel twice but if I'm looking too quickly, I can send a message to John in the group chat accidentally that was meant privately. It really shouldn't be that easy to do.

Agreed that separate tabs/windows for each function (Activity, Chat, Teams, Meetings etc.) would be a great feature!
Hi Suphatra... updates please? Now best part of 6 months from your "it's actively being worked on" post... doesn't seem very active...

Hello, any update on if/when this will be released? Its hurting us in a Slack compete.

Would be nice to be able to detach MS Teams chat into a separate window and resize it and move around. Impossible to chat about things in other MS Teams tabs if you cannot access anything else in Teams while chatting. Come on, guys! and you want us to migrate from SkypeFB to this?

What is the timeline for this to be released?
Any update on this?
It has been 6 months since you're "it's been 3 months post"... I mean how long can this take, these are paid services and it certainly should have been including when it shipped. Updates say more than twice a year would be appreciated.

6 months and still no update, is this still being worked on?
This is such a basic feature I can't believe the product shipped without it, why do software designers make so many fundamental design errors, it's not rocket science?!!!
