Multi-window for chats and more
I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.
We acknowledge the demand for this capability and are exploring the best possible solutions to enable this.
Always need multi task and it is annoying when chat or apps not available to open from another pop up window. This is extremely difficult when working with the new amazing Shift app, have to keep jumping back and forth between the app, chats and emails ... etc.
being able to search for folders and not just file names
Much needed feature after transition from Skype to Teams, need multi-talking productivity back that Team has hurt
Multiple chat windows visible at the same time.
Ability to remove the large text bubbles.
The message should be to the right on the user name to fit more individual statements for the limited real estate available.
Ability to search text for keywords.
Ability to color code or highlight text for specific users.
Also if you are in a chat and need to go to files in some teams to bring up a document, you need to leave your chat window, lookup your document and then click back to your chat..

Hurry!! Our company is being migrated from Skype to Teams and the current configuration is very annoying during meetings.
Please fix asap!!
I've come from a SfB house to Teams, and although I like the app I am really missing the pop out window and the ability to hold multiple private chats - especially during a full screen meeting. Having the meeting window so small and chat so large is counter intuitive imo. Having the ability to dock and undock the various apps would also be a great addition for multi monitor environments.
Skype for Business is going away and being replaced by Microsoft Teams, and yet this extremely important, common sense, and lets be honest: simple-to-implement feature... STILL hasn't been rolled out to Teams. As others have said, at this point, it is just unacceptable. The fact you've found time to build in integration with platforms like Meekan, BlueJeans Meetings, and YeeFlow, but couldn't find the time to simply allow users to pop-out chats, is, quite honestly, embarrassing.

This is a deal-breaker for me to completely give up Skype for Business. I quite often have side chats with other meeting participants or need to answer a question from someone else during a meeting. If I cannot do that with Teams and my company takes away Skype for Business (as is their intention), I'll be looking for another chat/message service to take Skype for Business' place.

This would get Teams almost caught up to ICQ from the 90s
This would be a game changer for TEAMS adoption for Chat/IM

Please! or have chat be able to act like an IM that can exist in the taskbar and pop up when your receive a message.
Any updates on having Chat pop out or separate? Unacceptable that it is taking so long to make the chat feature useful. Using AOL chat rooms from 1998 is more beneficial than this wretched and pathetic app.
Hello, from my point of view the usage of Teams it's really annoying. It's an app that allows you to do a lot of things, but only one at the time!! If I'm in a meeting and I got a message, basically I have to minimize the meeting to see the chat, or if I need to check a document it's the same. In my office I have two monitors but with Teams they are useless since everything runs inside of the same window. Unfotunately, in the company where I work at, Teams will become the official app and skype will be removed very soon, so I really hope you are able to provide a solution for this

This would be a valuable addition - there is much demand here!

Agreed. Love the functionality and collaboration within each individual field in Teams, but the ability for mulit-windows/pop-outs would increase efficiency and engagement with my team.

PLEASE add this feature. We are getting rolling on Teams in my Org and away from Skype, and not having this feature slows down the flow, for sure. Loving much about Teams, but this would seem an easy fix, no?
yes pop out!
