Please make Teams multi-window
From the company which invented Windows... a single-window productivity application. Really?
As multi-tasking is the accepted way of operating now, why does it need to take so long for me to switch from one task in Teams to another and back again? Please fix.

Someone below mentioned multi window chats. but This story is more than just that. the user experience for teams really makes it difficult to use the integrated features in a multi tasking capability.
e.g. I am using planner as a tab in Teams and i need to send a chat, i have to navigate away from the planner into chat to respond to a quick message or I am updating planner and asking someone a question about something in planner. The constant switing is distracting and highly unproductive as it breaks your train of through particularly when it take a second to reload each tab.
similarly i am in a video conference and i need to check planner or one note in one of my teams
another scenario, i am in screenshare meetring and i want to share the planner tab with everyone, when i share my screen, teams automatically minimises and i have to go back into my teams and select the planner or one note tab.
the whole one app experience might be ok for a tablet but majority of us are using a desktop and for some of us multi tasking is key to our work. Teams needs to better implement multi tasking.
as mentioned by the person that posted this idea, i keep telling everyone for a company that made windows i dont understand why teams is just "window" lol...

Please make chats within channels pop-out, like you did for non-channel chats. I would really like to migrate all of my chats into channels, but the lack of the pop-out capability hinders this.
Also, per the main topic of this chat... definitely need to be able to pop out each tab of teams.
Need to be able to pop out a document while working in it so I can get back other Teams/channels and chats
Agree.... the multi-window pop-out for chat is a small step in the right direction, but what about all the other conversations?
Please make all conversations able to be opened in their own window!
While you are at it, just make the entire teams window able to be duplicated as much as we want!

We need full multi-window not only for chat

It's actually coming out soon... this request originally started here (vote that one instead): https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chats-and-more
I fully agree. Not having multi-window support severely slows down my productivity. It is a complete disadvantage to have a Meeting screen minimize to something un-viewable when I check a post in a Teams channel or respond to a chat. I have the screen real estate (3 monitors) please let me use it effectively.
It's much more convient to have mulit-window option for Teams.
Having Video call in one window, chat in an other window.... today most people in office working with more than one monitors, therefore I can't understand that Teams is a single-window app

yes. I need multi-window
Really good point.
Not being able to edit a document and quickly reply to a chat message is going backwards!
