I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time
LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly. This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but a case where new O365 credentials have been created in another tenant for us. The app today only allows a single signed-in account at a time and that’s a blocker.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.

As of today the feature is not present yet on desktop version. When can this be released to Desktop version ?
Hello, working in different companies with multiple contracts, it becomes urgent and mandatory on Windows.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Dear Support, Like in mobile app we can add multiple account to access different org teams. Similarly I wanted to access multiple org teams on desktop app of teams.

It will be really helpful this feature
Absolutely vital to the continued use of Teams - I work in multiple organisations and it is embarrassing to 'appear' as an external member because Teams can only support one tenant. The work around of private browser session across multiple browsers seems to be ignored by video conferences.

Use Teams in the browser .... for each account you wish to log in with ... open a new incognito window and sign in with your separate accounts ...
There is your work around ... and ...
you are most welcome
I agree. Please add as soon as you can. Thanks for all you are doing.
Please add this feature. It is hampering our communications having several people making the choice that their other teams account is more important, which for the most part it is.

... we are in the middle of Corona Crisis and we need to work online all the time with all the other companies we work with outside our own. It makes Teams virtually unusable and certainly unfit for the purpose. Please get this done as soon as possible
I suggest as well that you allow partner companies to be included as such (and not the cumbersome way of guests). Anybody who outsources anything (and who does not) will need this
The sooner the better...

This should have been a feature since day 1

In these times working for more than one organisation and having a fully paid 365 account in both, it is a nuisance NOT to be able to have 2 multiple accounts open simultaneously.
Please make this happen asap!

Do it quick! You were working on it since Jan 2017?
This is so bad. It works on apple products but not on microsoft and they have been working on this functionality for months. Please hurry up with this.

Hello dear Microsoft Teams. Want to notify you, that community still waiting for this functionality.
Thank you for your work! Stay at home!

Why is Teams still so bad for this when Slack makes it so easy? 3 years on and they haven't got this really basic feature. How many companies really have only one customer they need to communicate with online?
Dear Microsoft Team,
Please make it fast. We are in dire need
There's just one snag with the workaround. If you start any application from Teams, it will run it with the fake profile. In particular, if you invoke "Sync" on some files, it will run another copy OneDrive.
@Francois Hill you are my hero. Your workaround works like a charm!

This is paintful. Not receiving notifications on those accounts not signed in. Have to sign out and sign in to check..... then miss a call on the previous account agggghhhhh!!!!
