Multi-window for chats and more
I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.
Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.

even just allowing the chat to be a separate window so I can navigate through files, calendar etc without losing the chat would be good
Help! we need it ASAP, thanks!

come on guys let's make this happen jeez :P
Do we have any updates on this, this is needed badly to make teams more functional for daily use.
100% necessary, I have multiple groups that I am in chats with, and it's super painful having to go back and forth

Any update on multiple camera chat windows i.e four - nine squares?
Last communication was 14 FEB 2020..
This is 1000% necessary. Working through revisions in chat on a file and can't collaborate while discussing without going back and forth. Hinders productivity.
The usefulness of teams is greatly hindered by the inability to have multiple windows open at the same time. How is the testing going and when do we expect this update to be pushed? Is there a beta available? When released, will it be released by region or for everyone? Alex, can you add any response information as an update to your response at the top of this page?

At this moment where many of us are working from Home and using TEAMS A LOT, a multi-window experience will be very welcome
What's the ETA for this?
when working in teams there is a loss of interaction if you are in a meeting and need to chat with a team outside of the meeting or another user. you do not see the notification that you have an unanswered chat or team message.

its been a month and a half when will we get an update for release of this feature.

It's April 1! So either the update with multi-window chat will start rolling out this month (please, make it today!) or we'll find out Microsoft has been playing a long game with this year's April Fool's joke.
Multi-window chat will help, and definitely better sooner rather than later, but professional users of Teams need to be able to work with multiple tasks, multiple files, multiple channels/teams, multiple documents/wiki pages - at the same time and rapidly cycling forward or back between different ones. It's an absolutely critical user experience which will only be partially addressed by 'Chat'. It would be a serious loss of momentum if the extensive voting here for all of the necessary productivity improvements is lost by declaring 'mission accomplished' just on multi-window chat. So really hoping for more in the future (and not so distant at that).
I've been waiting for this function to be implemented!!
Microsoft has been teasing us with this since Enterprise Connect. Glad to see it is finally being released this month!
What's the latest on this, please?
Can't wait. Having to switch between chat (with other people) and conference video instead of having top-level windows is needlessly tedious.
Multi-window chat for Teams is nice but multi-window for files is really necessary. When is it being released?

Good news ! Thank you
Multi-window chat with TEAMS would be great especially when I make courses in Higher Education with screen sharing.
