I switched from classic Hangouts to Chat in Gmail and the one issue I'm missing is that I no longer have the option to pop out the chat conversation into a new window. I know I can download the standalone app, but my favorite aspect of Hangouts was having it be its own window that could be small and separate from the tab/web page. I have looked everywhere for a setting or way to do this, and it seems to only allow a pop-up (small window, lower right side of Gmail inbox page) or full-screen. No pop *out*. Can we bring this feature back?

Agreed!  I need (ok want) to pop-out a couple of conversations while working on my desktop.  It's driving me crazy that both within Gmail and in the Chat extension there's no option to pop-out an individual conversation.  I can't even figure out where to leave feedback for google!  For the past couple of months in Hangouts my pop-outs kept unexpectedly closing when idle, I guess this was the beginning of the end?  Boo!  Google is taking these apps in the WRONG direction!

omg, I need these conversations to be pop-outs again. It's so annoying chatting to someone and having to write an emails. The chat windows get in the way of what you're working on! It was far easier to have my gmail window take up 75% of the screen and the chats outside the browser window. Who do you go to to get this back!?!?!?
