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.
Please add this feature

I would like to be able to open a meeting or other type of presentation in a separate window to enable use of other features without having to minimize or navigate away from the enlarged meeting window
Currently the chat does not pop up when you are in a meeting and sharing screen. Most of the other Software such as Zoom or Webex will have a pop up window which is not shared but the originator can see the chat. Also a private chat like webex would help

I was just formulating this same sentiment. It would be nice to be able to put people in break out groups for a period but then let everyone be able to join the big meeting again when they complete their workstream.

Please add this idea! It would me so convenient!
Agreed - we utilizing multiple features in Teams (sharing) and if someone is screen sharing their Teams UI and we need to collaborate on something within Teams, we have to minimize the screen share to a thumbnail. Popping screen share out to a separate resizable window would be useful.

We have two large screens in our conference room. When presenting we can see distant team members on one screen and the presentation on the other. However, when someone else is presenting it won't allow us to show their presentation on one screen and all the people on the other - the people become a small window in the corner. This doesn't make sense.
As usual for Microsoft, good idea, bad execution.
YES Please do this. Skype does this just fine, but our corporation is moving to Teams, so please, do this!!
There are a lot of posts with this same topic. Would be nice if they can be consolidated, so that we can track as one
It would be great to have an extra Window during a meeting. One window to see all members and the other one for Planner for example. Or you make an Planner App. :)
A lot of people brings his own laptop to a meeting (when they go to a meeting room), and they use it with a projector or a TV to share the meeting with the rest of the assistants. If the meeting can be opened in a new window, the user can interact with the different chats/teams that he receives in his own laptop (extending the screen, of course). Otherwise, this person needs the mobile with the app (something strange because you are in a meeting) or wait until the meeting ends, because he doesn't want to share all the chats with the assistants. This can enhance instant messaging even if you're in a meeting and you need to confirm or authorise something that is urgent.
I think this is also related with: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chats-and-more
Make meeting window detachable so that meeting window is separate and chats window is separate. Right now, every window is within teams. It makes difficult to see presentation and as well chat with some one else.
I utilize a dedicated portrait monitor for my chat applications. I would love not to have to drag teams to another monitor when a co-worker shares a screen with me via Teams and maintain the chat window in its original location. A "pop-out" option for the screen share would be ideal.
Would it be possible to include the "pop-out" feature for the screen-share/meeting window to be independent of the Chat window? This way, you are able to maximize the screen-share while still being able to address any pressing chat messages in a separate window.

Instead of voting for this one, I recommend to vote for this one which has the momentum:
The control bar that pops up from below once any key is pressed keeps popping up and hiding away. It is quite annoying when trying to take screen snapshots. Please provide an option to hide it.

There are some consequences to having this nested within Teams
1. As stated, it is difficult to use the application when also trying to participate in a screen share.
2. Participating in two screen shares at the same time is not functional.
3. There are many times where we are hosting a meeting and displaying the content of a screen share on a TV or projector. This removes any capacity to use the application while sharing and if you inadvertently click on a notification, then that is displayed to the people in the meeting.
The only workaround to these situations is a second machine or using the web client.
Hi, I just had first meeting via Teams and YES this is the feature I would like
