Pop out a chat in Teams

You can quickly pop out your one-on-one or group chat into a new window. Then, resize, reposition, or exit the window as you want. It’s a easy way to achieve much while you’re in a meeting or in a call.  FYI: You can pop out several conversations, but not the same chat twice.

Tip: To do other things (like scheduling meetings, attaching a OneDrive File, adding apps), just return to the main app to find those familiar features. You don’t need to close the pop out chat window.

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.
