allow multiple windows in teams or be able to "pop out" the chat window
Work on teams (conversation, files, tabs etc) but still have access to the chat function either as a pop out or be able to have multiple windows for teams open

The functionality to get a meeting "pop out" to full screen and allow interaction with other windows or main team windows will be helpful.
What's the point of having all these integrated apps within teams, if I can't chat and use the integrated apps at the same time!?!?!?! I want separate chat windows! I want separate windows! Hello Microsoft!!! Your operating platform is called WINDOWS. Please make this happen. I'm stuck using Teams thanks to a corporate decision but frankly, I find all the "extra" features useless without this basic functionality.
MS keeps having to learn that people want more than one thing one and don't want to go BACKWARDS... 5 chat windows in Skype for Business, no problem. Teams.. no way. This is the lesson from Windows8. The best feature of Windows, is, ah, separate WINDOWS! The taskbar already lets me select amongst windows, I don't need an app that takes over everything and only shows me one window at a time. Hey, MS, we work on more than one project and with more than one person at a time... hurry up with being able to pull team chats and meetings into separate Windows.
All of the following tickets (and I'm sure there are more) seem to be asking for the same thing: When chatting with multiple people at the same time, you have to keep switching back and forth in the left panel and it feels very clunky. We all want an easier way to have separate conversations with multiple people at once.

This is one of the most desired but missing features as this is currently very often slowing down our work.

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
They are apparently working on it. Your comment and votes may be more visible here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chats-and-more

This has been a serious disruption to my workflow- we use teams extensively, but the need to either "minimize" someones screen share and/or lose my place in a document navigation to chat with someone is maddening.
Jeff Jenkins commented
This is a must have - why isn't it standard? Most apps have this ability or at least a tabbed interface
Our company misses this feature from S4B. Please bring to MS Teams.

Please make this possible!

I agree. A pop out window would be better and allow people to do multiple things at once in 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.

Right now I have the native Teams application open to the chat mode. I have a second browser window open with the Teams web app so I can watch a chat in the Team mode.
Please allow me to do this all with the one app!
