Anyway we can have Meeting and Chat screen displays separately or in different windows? Currently during meeting and chat displays in the same screen so during meeting we can see either of them in FULL screen mode.

Hi Hitesh V

Currently working on Multi-window for chats and more

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chat...

Hope that helps and answers your question

Best, Chris
You can have a big video and small chat on right by clicking the chat bubble during meeting or big chat with a small video window in top left by clicking your chat tab in teams and selecting the meeting chat.

As far as pop out windows it’s a uservoice item that Microsoft is looking into.

Thanks Chris, will follow the link

Something I do occasionally, is that I have a desktop client in the meeting and Chrome web Teams open in the same tenant. That way I can multi-task (bad, I know ;) ) to Teams while attending a meeting. But then I have a separate Team/chat window that is "popped out" of Teams.

@Chris Webb - that works for chats with the current meeting group.   But one of my bigger issues is to have a side chat with someone else while the meeting is occurring.  Since Teams has become our defacto messaging system, i might be in a meeting with one group while someone else informs me of a problem.  If i even see the notification, the minute i flip to that mode the meeting becomes this tiny one-inch screen that is completely unreadable.

@JosephA 

 

We hope that user voice is still in the works then! Go vote if you haven't already :)

No this doesn't help, actually read the threads you post please :)

@Christopher Hoard there has been no communication by microsoft over on that thread.

@ultrafab yes there has, at the top where they say they are 'Working on It' which is entirely accurate.

 

They let us know through the message centre when they have a plan to roll it out. In all these cases its not developed to a date, its developed to a quality standard. 

finding very frustrating the lack of multiple windows in teams when trying to use as a portal for IM, Meetings and share document workspace, the inability to either have multiple open windows or tabs is quite inefficient as it drives a very single threaded usage, although I can have multiple browser windows open..

Understood @linzph - this is definitely in development and is on its way.

Know how much the community want this so think that most are feeling a bit of frustration. It will be worth waiting for

Best, Chris

@Christopher Hoard - great! - any indication of timing/preview etc?

Not currently.

Would keep an eye on the Microsoft 365 roadmap for when it appears

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=

And this uservoice

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926739-multi-window-for-chat...

As you can see from the uservoice they are working on it last update July 3rd 2019

Best, Chris

Fully agree with @hiteshv!!!  I wish we can have 'tear out' chat windows and have as many as we have chats. Similar to how the old Skype use to be. Now unfortunately that's not possible in Skype either. I work with a team around the world and we live in Chat and I hate having to keep bouncing back into Chat in teams then go back to another and another... love to just put them on my second monitor and have them in small windows. 

Also bring that back to Skype (about 3 vers. ago) miss that too! 

Yup, they are working on pop out chats, but till then, I always have a web version of Teams open for chat on my 2nd monitor which works well.

@Balu N Ilag   they must be slowly rolling this out. I just did an update check and shut-down and reopened and still at last update 7/1/19.  No pop-out yet. Thanks for the info! Can't wait for full roll-out. 

@Balu N Ilag 

Hello All,

 

Just to clarify that I am part for ring 1.5, so this pop-out windows feature available as part of ring 1.5 but not general rollout. we need to wait to get this feature general rollout. 

Good thing is this feature will be coming to Teams.  I must say Teams is getting better day by day.

Thanks to Microsoft.

@Balu N Ilag  can't wait for full roll-out. Would love to see all functions of Teams be able to be tear-out windows. It would really make it an amazing tool. 

Yes, This is really a useful feature. I am sure that most of customers waiting for this feature and even Microsoft also putting lots of efforts to make this available as GA.
"developed to a quality standard" - I love your sense of humor!
It should have been in the initial implementation.
For a couple conversations - still nowhere near enough for what I do on a daily basis.
I'm curious how they thought this was a good business decision to remove the functionality that already existed in S4B - tells you the developers aren't actual real users of the software.
The difference is, one completely smashes the other when it comes to mobile workforce. The clients all use the same platform so they have to make them coexist, this obviously can hold some things back.

They tried to dumb things down for everyday users on the original release and it shows, but at the same time they pissed off the power users. They won't ever make both camps happy so they are tweaking and you can see it moving over to the power users side slowly but surely from the original design.

When they first made Teams I don't think they meant it to take over Skype till they saw the potential and the usage take off. Now that they are they have to retrofit a lot of the old features in. It's come a long way from what it was even a year ago. It'll get there just have to have some patients, by the time they actually force people off Skype I expect it to almost all be in the product.
Just wish my org hadn't forced us off it prematurely. It really lacks most of what Skype had going for it - maybe other users will get updates that make it better soon.
