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.
We are happy to announce that the Pop-out meetings feature has started to roll out and should complete over the next couple of weeks. Please check out the Tech Community blog for more information here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/new-meeting-and-calling-experience-in-microsoft-teams/ba-p/1537581.
Feature turned off automatically, not sure why. Had to turn on again and restart Teams.
Worked great, but now after 2 weeks the option ist not available anymore... :(
We need the multi-window feature for everything at Teams. Meetings, calendar, groups, channels......

I enabled the 'new Teams meeting separate windows' option weeks back and it was working flawlessly. now the option is no longer enabled and despite re-enabling and restarting Teams the option will not enable.
Anyone else seeing this today? I have reached out to other users in my ORG and they are not experiencing the same issue.
Thanks for providing the pop-out meeting window functionality, it's a nice improvement.
When people share presentation material, the participant videos are shown at the bottom / bottom right of the window. As participant cameras are normally above their screens, this means their eyes move away from their camera when they look at the participants, which is unfortunate. Would it be possible to make this configurable, to show participants above the material presented?
I tried the pop-out meeting feature. Now, I am ready to turn it off. Please, does anyone know how to turn it off?
Do you know what the timeline is for GCC? Currently we only have pop-outs in peer-to-peer or group chats. We don't have it in meeting chats & we don't have an option for "Turn on new meeting experience" in settings.

I hate how in the pop out windows, you cannot make the chat full screen like you could previously. Now it always takes a small area of the screen. What if you were reviewing a table in the chat. Etc.
What is missing is a way to reconnect after a connection issue. A history of attended meetings could solve this. Now when the meeting has a problem, the window can close and I loose th reference to the meeting.
At least in the old single-window design, the meeting I left remained open so I could click again on the join-buttons.
Why did we lose "enter full screen mode". Even in "Focus" mode there is too much screen real estate used by other non-essential things.
Hello, I can not seem to keep this feature enabled. I add the check restart Teams and it is unchecked. Has anyone experienced this or know how to fix this?
This feature doesn't work on the mac client. The docked control panel isn't docked at the top and the old floating version disappears never to return (hovering no longer works) once you start sharing a powerpoint. The floating controls to navigate forward and back in a powerpoint are now gone as well.

It's annoying that the control bar does not disappear fast and sometimes it stays forever blocking the content being presented or the face of a presenter.
It should float for user to drag it anywhere in the screen,
I hope popping out the contact list like you can in Skype is also being tested as part of this, it is making Teams unusable for me having it buried away whilst viewing other areas in Teams :-(
Any updates when this feature will be released?
Camilo Rodriguez commented
hide control bar or move control bar outside presentation screen.

Not having pop-out video is a big hindrance using teams after a meeting has started. I have 4 monitors! I'm sure I could work better if the video was full screen on one and I was able to navigate teams efficiently without trying to watch a stamp size video of the meeting.
In Skype - when a new message was sent to me I got a pop-up window from that person. With Teams, it just sits in a box like an email, except with an email I at least get a little message in my notification panel. What good is teams if I have to send an email to someone asking to get on chat with me? And the camera never works in the program, so video calling is relegated to zoom, and the audio quality we dealt with was horrendous when we did test it. I just want a pop-up window! Like in Skype - even AIM did this!
Please add this feature, SUPER ANNOYING.

Really would like to get this to roll out to my team and clients using Teams. Any new date of release?
