How to Get Pop-out Chat in Microsoft Teams

Unlike some chat apps like Skype, Microsoft Teams can be used in a multi-window mode. Microsoft allows team users to pop-out multiple chats, share documents, or make calls in those individual windows. There are a few different ways to open the chat list in separate windows. We have listed down all the ways to pop-out chat in Microsoft Teams. Please keep in mind that this feature doesn’t work with Teams on the web (browser). Furthermore, this feature does not support Microsoft Teams Channels.

Locate the chat/user with whom you want to initiate a chat or call in a separate window, and click on the ellipsis (…) for options. Then, click on the pop-out chat option to open the chat in a separate window. Or, you can simply double click on the chat to pop it out.
