Pop Out/Dedicated conference & meeting window for Teams Meeting
If would be good to have a pop out dedicated window during conference call, meetings and screen sharing session like Skype for business.
Currently it is very inconvenient to continue work on TEAMS without getting calls window minimized.
The Pop-out meeting feature has been rolled out to 100% of users. You can enable the feature by going to your profile picture at the top right of Teams > Settings > General > then select Turn on new meeting experience.

I still don't have this feature although I have updated to the latest version (1.3.00.30866 (64 bit). How long will it take MS to roll out?
BUGS! The share tray is not recognizing newly opened windows, one has to quite and relaunch teams and rejoin a meeting before a newly opened window can be shared.
This would be a fantastic addition to Teams.

Agreed, we've found that while you can do it in regular chats, that it's not possible for 'Meetings' chats. Would be very beneficial to have this ability. We've had several meeting lately working on projects where this would have been very useful.
Same as the previous comments: Love that meetings automatically open in separate window. Need this for Live events as well, please.
I love the auto pop-out for most meetings. Please add this feature for Team Live meetings.

Would popouts apply when someone is sharing a screen? I run two monitors & would love to see this ability. My job is monitoring classrooms and watching interaction between teachers and students. When the teacher shares his screen it would be nice to break it away and put it on a separate monitor while still engaging with the rest of the class on the primary monitor.

Hi, I think that when editing/setting up a meeting, it should open a new window.
When I am setting up large meetings and don't have all the information needed, I have to delete the meeting I am working on when I need to attend another meeting, or chat with someone.
I end up having to copy and paste the body into another app, and take screen shots of the invite list since I can't copy and paste that.
To quote Alice from Aug 19 "We need the multi-window feature for everything at Teams. Meetings, calendar, groups, channels...... "
I see in other areas that this has been requested for at least 2 years.
You need this for Live events too.
We still are not able to pop-out a "Conversation" into a new window!
Can we please have this added?
When will this roll out to all users? I am using version 1.3.00.21759 (64-bit) and the option is still not available to me. If I go to settings, the option to turn on New Experience is still not there. I'm attaching a screenshot of my settings. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled using the link in the article you shared to make sure I was not using a non-supported version of the app. Many users at my institution are seeing this but a few of us are not.
We had this feature and it has now disappeared
Team Meetings pop out is not working anymore after it was previously available. Is this something that will be brought back?
Maíra Miranda commented
Is that going to be expanded to meetings?

Can we also change the layout of the popped-out video view so that our little video feed does not sit on top of someone else? With no screen sharing, my video is covering a good 1/4 of someone else's video in the bottom right corner.

ok, i see, our tenant is not the only one who lost this feature :). Any news about this?

Experienced the same issue as others, after an update my teams lost the feature of pop ups. Is this something that can be resolved soon?
Tom Perkins commented
We also had this feature and then it was lost after a recent Teams update. Was this feature rolled back?
