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.

>Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully: can this comment be changed please as it's clearly not the case, i.e. it's not fully in the public ring as I don't have it yet!

It will be really helpful
For those interested in slightly more comprehensive instructions, I've expanded on Francois Hill‘s solution in the following blog post: https://danielsmon.com/2020/04/02/multiple-ms-teams-accounts-on-the-desktop/
We have our consulting staff currently needing to continually log out of our Teams instance and into client ones to be able to work effectively in the current "work from home" environment. Making multiple accounts work seamlessly would be a major productivity boost at the moment.
Its critical we get this one sorted out ASAP. Now in situation at home where everyone in our house is using Teams across different accounts... for school and work. MUST be resolved as critical priority.
When will the next update on this topic be forthcoming? I'd like to see this sooner rather than later.
Using it on IOS but need it on the Desktop for PC and MAC ASAP
Yes, this is becoming a major challenge for us. please expedite.
Just in case another +1 is needed.
Has this feature been added yet?
Really need to switch between two email accounts in Teams back and forth freely.

Can someone post a link on how to use multiple teams accounts at the same time. I am part of 3 customers one being microsoft but i have to switch tenants and can have only one session at a time.
I have one email for work and one for school.
It's very frustrating that I have to log out of one account and into the other to access the teams, especially since you only get notifications from the team you're logged into, and won't know when or what is being posted in the other team.
If you can have multiple different accounts on the same computer, you should be able to have multiple accounts on teams as well.
Please fix this ASAP!!
No we don't want account switching want to interact with different Team accounts at the same time with out account switching
Please implement multiple org sign on for Teams desktop!!.
I do have the iOS app but would be beneficial on desktop.
really, why is this not there yet. Cant it already be released on some insider channel? Especially in these times this is a critical feature. I need to work with multiple clients, and now I have to use a poor man solution with multiple browsers, teams client, etc. while in Slack this is no problem at all.. Please increase priority on this one...
Disaster - I've been sent an 'invite' to join a client organisation team - and it's completely logged me out of the other 'Team' I was in and disabled my entire work! Every time I sign out and back into teams, the NEW Invitation comes up and I am forced into this new client team. How can I get 'rid' of this new team and return to my original one?

As of today the feature is not present yet on desktop version. When can this be released to Desktop version ?
