I would like to be able to open multiple instances of Teams so that I can work on documents or other things while being able to respond to Chats in the other window without having to lose my place in the document I was working on.
It kind of helps to be able to pop out specific messages, but if I then accidentally click on the pop up window to respond to a message it takes me to the chat in the main window instead of the pop out window. It is extremely frustrating to me to have the chat in the popout and the main window at the same time. If I pop it out it should no longer be in the main window until I close the pop out.
Please add the ability to open multiple Teams windows then I won't have to mess with pop out chats.

You can. Open new window browser and use the web version of Microsoft Teams https://www.office.com/?auth=2
You can have as many browser windows with Teams open as your system performance will handle.
I have 5 client teams sites and having to log in and out of them is really frustrating. I would like to be able to have more than one open at a time.
The feature would be extremely useful when using teams in multiple organizations. (e.g. Consulting company with a lot of customers)
Currently, the use of the Teams app for the own organization and the use via web browser for another organization is possible as a workaround.
I agree this would be extremely useful. I generally need to have windows open that I can refer to while I am composing in a different channel or on a different OneNote page. It's much more efficient to do this by running multiple windows on multiple screens (like I can in Word or Excel) than by switching back and forth.
It would help when multiple groups ping or otherwise interact with each of us at the same time.
Agree, we hand over to a new shift in remote offices and have to log out of teams in order for another staff member to log in elsewhere resulting in our telephone calls being missed.
