Pop Out/Dedicated conference & meeting window for Teams Meeting
If would be good to have a pop out dedicated window during conference call, meetings and screen sharing session like Skype for business.
Currently it is very inconvenient to continue work on TEAMS without getting calls window minimized.
The Pop-out meeting feature has been rolled out to 100% of users. You can enable the feature by going to your profile picture at the top right of Teams > Settings > General > then select Turn on new meeting experience.

When you are in a meeting and you want to send an IM/chat that is not related to the meeting/channel that you are in, have Teams open a new window for that chat. Reason: It is difficult to chat with others and still participate in the meeting.
I would like to have the option to break out the meeting into a separate window rather than have the meeting shrink into the upper-left-hand corner of the Teams window.
Some times, I have a dual screen and I want to have my meeting on a full screen on one window and address issues through chat in another window.
I use two monitors as well. During meetings, I often need to see Files that are stored on Teams, and conduct conversations with other attendees or non-attendees.
Agreed - would be extremely useful!
This would really help.
I think this will be important when Microsoft sunsets Skype for Business. Today, we can effectively hold a meeting with shared desktop and show content in Teams. But when you meet in Teams and then click over to the other content for sharing, you can't see the people you're meeting with. The whole purpose of a video meeting is so you can see reactions, engagement, etc. You lose this by not having a separate window making it less effective.

This is closely related to the more general separate-windows idea here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chats-and-more

If all our team communications are in the same app as our Wiki and Notes, we really need to be able to have calls and meetings pop out in a separate window so that we can keep the call visible (e.g. full-screen on a secondary monitor) while still accessing our notes and conversations.
