Something I really miss from the MSN Messenger era was how conversations would be separate self-contained windows.

Over the last several years there's been a push towards mobile-first design, which has meant everything now takes place inside a single app window, even on desktop.


I'd love to be able to pop out individual DMs in Discord into their own minimal windows, so I can focus on the conversation and not have the giant sidebar taking up space and attention.

@luna they even have a pop-out view for video calls already! like, it couldn't be that hard, right? heck, the in-game overlay is even kinda similar, letting you separate a chat from your server/channel list and pinning it over your game
