Multi-window for chats and more
I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.
Hooray! Multi-Window chat has been a long-awaited feature, and it is rolled out fully to the general public. Please be sure to “check for updates” and restart your client if you aren’t seeing it.

Nice, having multiple windows open at the same time was one of the features I liked most about Windows 1.0 :)
Don't force user to use a single window. allow option to pop-up chat window so that can multi-task properly.
@johanne, that's a separate issue from Multi-Window, and is here:
on "Free Zoom" I can have up to 100 people(50/screen) with a swipe option to go to the next screen - far more participants with the paid option!
Can we expect at least this on Teams Office365? Very very soon?
can you elaborate on the roll out plan, when will the UK O365 customers be expecting this?

if you want a separate window you can do /pop name of the person
How do we we know when we will received it?
Great to hear! :)

BRING IT TO WEB VERSION PLEASE!!!
Alex, your update doesn't correspond to the roadmap and what previously been announced in 'Message center'. What to expect?
Message center: We are pleased to announce that we will be enabling users to be able to view meetings and calls in separate windows along with the other recently announced features. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 57294. We will be rolling this out in June.
Great, now apply that tech to ALL parts of teams.
If I'm editing a document and need to look at another document. I can't do that !!
Please let us know in which version and OS we find this great feature.
In the macOS Microsoft Teams Version 1.3.00.9271 from 20.May.2020 I still miss the feature.
Thanks for the info. For all who can’t wait for the multi-window feature, just use this in the meantime... similar function with little effort. I think it’s also possible with Chrome but i used the new Chromium Edge. Works perfectly. Here is one example. There are more like it if you search for it..

Hello? Are you done yet? You're past due.
My Teams are going insane by not having multiple windows available!
This is long long overdue and has been more than three years in the making. Three years while all sorts of garbage like memes was obviously more important than basic usability. Hope it's going to be good.
WHEN IS THE END OF THE MONTH COMING?

I definitely need this ability
Can you please address the delay until June on the 365 Roadmap. This has been needed for years. I get there are reasons you can't rush things out, but just a month of using a bad interface is enough to turn users away. Now that our users are using other tools, it's going to be tough to get them back. End of April... it's now middle of May... and roadmap says June?!
