Teams Multi-window support and Call Me generally available on Windows 365

Microsoft

We are happy to announce that Teams Multi-window support and Call Me are now generally available on Windows 365.  

 

The Multi-window capability provides users the option to pop out chats, meetings, calls, or documents into separate windows to help streamline their workflow. It also brings new experiences to Windows 365 such as, Call Me. Previously, during a Teams meeting, if a user went to check their calendar, the meeting window would minimize to the corner of the screen. Now with Multi-window support, users can view full-sized, separate windows for meetings/calls and the main Teams client during a Teams meeting.  

 

Additionally, meeting and call controls such as mute, video, chat, leave, and more are now located at the top of the meeting window so that they are always available and never block the underlying content. 

Separate windows

View meetings and calls in separate windows from the main Microsoft Teams client.

Easier access to meeting controls now located at the top of the meeting screen, out of the way of content and video being shared.
