According to the Microsoft 365 roadmap, this feature will start rolling out to Windows users in early April, with Mac and Linux users to follow “in the coming weeks”.

Multi-Window Chat support for Microsoft Teams was first announced last year at Ignite, and it’s one of the big new features coming soon to Microsoft Teams this Spring, along with the ability to chat and call with Skype users. Teams' upcoming multiwindow capabilities will also allow users to pop out meetings, calls or documents into separate windows.
Microsoft Teams is one of the fastest-growing apps in the Office 365 ecosystem, and the software giant announced last week that it had reached 44 million daily active users. The app is seeing increased usage during the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, and it's good to see Microsoft focused on improving the messaging experience.
