I was just wondering, would it be that hard to add an option to pop out the chat instead of having to go all the way to the Chats section and replying to have a conversation, and then having to go back to whatever work you were doing, which could mean a lot of time lost. Having all chats popped out at the beginning isn't really the best thing, but I find myself adding more and more chats as the day goes by. PLease tell me I'm not the only one who would like a feature like this.

Hi @ArnavC 

 

This feature has been suggested by many users at Microsoft Teams UserVoice. I am pleased to inform you that it is now possible to pop out a chat in Teams.

 

Note: The Pop out chat feature is currently available in the desktop app for Windows and Mac only. It is not yet supported for Teams on the web, Linux, or mobile. 

 

Thanks
