Pop Out Chat in Teams 

You can open Teams chats in separate windows. These windows can be resized, and repositioned and multiple windows can be opened at once. There are multiple options to pop out a chat in Teams.  

From the chat list 

Select Chat on the left sidebar of Teams. Find the chat that you want and select more options > Pop out chat. Additionally, you can double click the name of the chat and you will see a new pop out window.
