Pop out video conference to a separate window
Allow users to pop out the video conference to a separate window. This way I can continue all of my chats in a separate window.

with multiple monitors having the presentation full screen and video full screen on another would be greatly appreciated
I would like the option to see the shared content as though it were just another attendee. This way I can see the participants and shared content in one overview; or if I want to I can zoom in on the shared content just as I can any single participant.
During a meeting when a person is sharing his/her screen, the video becomes very small in bottom. Being able to pop-out the video in separate window from shared screen makes possible to see and talk TO person and see shared content.
I second this feature. Teams has been adding great new functionality like Together Mode, but I think for Together Mode to really shine you need to leverage it in a separate window so you can see shared screens in one window, video in the other. For folks with two separate monitors, this would be awesome!

Once a video conference has started, using the other features of Teams becomes difficult. Not just chat, but also looking up documents, calendar, anything really. Whether you are using multiple monitors or not, having the conference in a separate window would facilitate switching back and forth from the conference window to the Teams window, allowing the user to use all the features of Teams with greater ease.

Often the user has multiple monitors and with separate windows, so I will get “sharing” and list of video attendant one monitor and a variable pop up in other windows/ monitor. More control.
Exactly this is what idea I've got as soon as I start to use pop-out chat window. Better direction would be to pop-out video and be able to do chats, check meetings in the calendar etc. as they take less space in the app. Whilst when you are on video call it blocks other functionalities and when you try to do something else it's minimized to size of the matchbox and you cannot see anything ;)
