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
