Ability to undock the "Chat" function in the Teams window
Would like to see the ability to undock the "Chat" function in the Teams window - like the Skype for Business interface, so that I can work in "Teams" and view documents while answering questions for folks. Too often, someone asks me a question, to answer it I have to leave the chat and find the document and then go back to the chat and then re-find the document. I also may want the chat up and visible while I'm working in other applications without wanting the heavier/larger total Teams UI on top.
@satish: the only way I know is, that you start teams in a browser. So you have opened the teams app and the browser as well. But early next year this feature is coming

A very much needed feature. It was great during the Skype days. did any one figured a non-standard ways to undock chat function ? or is there any ways we can start teams twice and have one for chat exclusively and other for additional activities?

main idea for this is here:
Please go vote there as well. I really want this as well and see it as the biggest hinderance to using Teams effectively

Must have feature!
Please put this in priority. It's very frustrating when chatting with more than 4 people to switch back and forth...

This is closely related to the more general separate-windows idea here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chats-and-more
Yes, Is very inneficient go back and re-find the team, the channel, and the document where i was working on. I think your idea will be fantastic.
