How to develop Microsoft Teams app for “App Bar and home screen”

I would like to create an application for Microsoft Teams but I don't understand what capability I have to exploit. I would like the application to be called up from the application bar and opened to full screen. The same behavior that occurs for the "App Studio" application. I need to bring something that is not accessible, either by chat or tea; the app should manage a flow in a personal window.

I looked at the manifest definition document but found nothing. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/resources/schema/manifest-schema

I would like to replicate the application behavior like AppStudio or Microsoft Planner, to name a few. For example App StudioApp Studio

 

A possible alternative, could be to insert a button in the chats and open a popup with the configuration page. I saw this behavior for the AzureDevOps extension. Unfortunately this also seems to be a capability not available. Azure DevOpsAzure DevOps

 

Do you have any idea how to do it?

Thanks a lot

You can achieve this by implementing the “staticTabs” property of the manifest, and setting its “scope” to “personal”.
