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.

Can we get an update on this? Looks like it's been in dev for 6 months now. This is the current biggest gripe with Teams.
Daniel Tulloh commented
This would be really useful as the chat during a meeting and especially screen share is very small and squished to the right side of the screen. Trying to read long lines with code in the comments is difficult.

Any update on this? This is a must-have for our users also
Any progress on this one? Echoing other comments - this is a productivity killer and must be resolved before we can look to migrate our enterprise to Teams.

Want to be able to pop out the chat from teams. Want to be able to only have the chat open and not whole teams.
Want to be able to pin the chat notification as well.

Any update on this request?
My team is basically waiting on this feature before we start our planning stage of Teams adoption. It's got to be a feature or we will simply use Skype for Business until Microsoft inevitably automatically uninstalls it from our computers anyway.
this would make teams a whole lot better
Yes, we need variable sized windows. When I turn on chat, I'd like to see an option to have it on the side of the window, with the video still large.
Keep up the great work.
My company is moving from SfB to Teams, and the thought of having to switch between chats and other parts of the Teams interface to get work done, is a huge productivity killer. This needs to be taken more seriously.
If you are going to replace Skype for Business with Teams we absolutely NEED the ability to pop chats out!

The lack of this feature is making Teams chat completely unusable.
We need to be able to work in our Team Channels at the same time we're engaging in Chat conversations.
Switching back and forth is a huge waste of time.
For a business environment this is a critical feature. Do you have a projection when this feature will be released? -thanks

That is really a necessary function in TEAMs. We are working on multiple documents and need to open them simultaniously!
This is a must!! It will help adoption and reduce the frustration after it becomes our only option later in year

Yes please! I'm so used to ALT-TABbing my way around, and the inability to open multiple windows in Teams is my ONE BIG ASK of Teams.
Please update on this must have feature
I don't understand why this wouldn't be a standard feature; please roll it out ASAP!
Allison Rost commented
This is extremely important to our organization as well.

Would absolutely love to break out the Video Meeting window from the standard chat window - I hope this feature is rolled out soon.
