Enhance Productivity in Microsoft Teams with Pop Out Apps and Tabs
These days It's normal for users to rely on multiple apps and windows to work through tasks.  Now Microsoft has added the capability to pop out multiple windows, originally with chats and meetings, and now with personal apps and tabs.
Here is an overview on how to pop out apps and tabs.
  1. Pop out your personal apps pinned in your app bar: You can easily pop out your personal apps from your app bar on the left rail. Simply ‘right click’ on the desired app and select the “Pop out app” field in the window or open the app and locate the ‘pop out’ symbol in the top right of the tab bar. Your personal app will then pop out in a separate window, enabling you with the ability to continue utilizing the app while using the main screen for chat or other apps.

  1. Pop out tabs pinned in your chats and channels: You can also pop out tabs pinned in your chats and channels by simply selecting the desired tab and then the “pop out tab” symbol to the right of the header. The tab will pop out in a separate window, enabling you to continue to have access to the tab while navigating elsewhere.
Microsoft Teams History Feature:
Microsoft Teams has a new feature that makes it easy to pick up where you left off.  Coming soon, there will be a new history menu that will allow users to jump to previous locations in the app.
When navigating around Microsoft Teams, you can use the forward or backward navigation arrows to jump back and forth between recent locations.  Additionally, when a user hovers over one of the arrows, they’ll see a history menu.  You can also bring up the history menu by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+H

Currently this feature is only available for desktop and web versions of Teams.
Microsoft Teams: Disable Chat During Teams Meetings
A highly requested feature for Microsoft Teams is rolling out soon and that is the ability to disable chats within meetings. There are now three options for chats during meetings:
  • Enabled (default):  Attendees can chat before, during, and after the meeting.
  • Disabled: No one, including the organizer, can send chat messages.
  • During the meeting only: Attendees can chat during the meeting.  The organizer can send messages at any time.
To swap between these settings, use the option next to Allow meeting chat
