Microsoft Teams now supports the ability to pop out shared content (e.g., screen sharing, PowerPoint Live, Whiteboard) into a separate window while in meetings. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 86948.
Users can pop out shared meeting content in a separate window.
When this will happen
We will begin rolling out in early August and expect to complete rollout by the end of September.
How this will affect your organization
Once available, users will be able to pop out content from meeting stage and use more monitors/screens during their meetings.
The feature is only supported for devices with specific hardware capabilities. Majority of modern devices with medium and high-end hardware will support popping out content into a shared window while in meetings. As Microsoft continues to fine tune the experience, there may be more support in the future for other types of devices with less performant hardware.
What you need to do to prepare
You may want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
