opening the files simultaneously while on the chat
When working on a file in a chat, we have to switch between file/chat back and forth....
I would like to have the chat on the right side like in a channel while working on a file like excel, so while one adds changes we can observe that and hang on chatting...
can't you just open your doc from Teams and select 'open in app' , which opens the doc in the app (word, excel, etc), once you do that you can chat and jump back and forth....seems to work ok for me.

Copy the excel file link and open in google chrome and continue chatting in the teams.
about to try this workaround but the fact I need to is shocking
This drives me crazy. please implement this. it's so difficult to work simultaneously on a file whilst chatting to someone (without a call).
You need to be able to work on a file and get chat notifications, read them fully and not be taken out of your file to do so.

I guess the best way is to use a browser, then you can have different tabs open in the same team.
Yes! This is so painful. I'm working on an Excel spreadsheet, and someone messages me something important. I go back to chat to answer them, but they don't respond right away, so I no sooner get back the Excel spreadsheet, and I get another message! This is ridiculous.
