See participants pane AND text chat at same time in meeting
Want to be able to see both the text chat window AND recipient list at the same time. Ability to un-dock and move them around would be nice too. Should work more like Skype meetings in this regard.
Needed, used all the time in Skype and WebEx.

Any update about this issue ?
Does anypone knows any alternative temporary solution for this ?
Still not available ?
Microsoft: Any ETA?
Absolutely! I frequently need to see both at the same time!
This is actually one of my biggest complaints after converting from Skype. As a Trainer, it is critical to be able to see participants and monitor chat at the same time. Skype had a split column. The real ideal scenario would be to allow panels to break out and drag to another monitor.

Agree on all points.
1. Skype allows both participants and chat to be visible and I find this very useful during meetings. I would like to see Teams enhanced similarly.
2. Likely a different request, but the ability to undock would also be valuable. I use 3 monitors at my desk and being able to have the meeting full-screen on my main with the chat panel and participants list open in seperate pop-outs in a second monitor would be very valuable. Especially as the number of participants grows (e.g. an org group meeting, or a cross-channel update).
