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.

Better yet, have it so you only have one account, and when someone invites you (as guest) their guest account in linked to yours. So you only manage one account.
Can someone tell me HOW to create multiple accounts in Teams in IOS? Would be highly appreciated
Can you explain how to do that. It kicks me out each time I try to use two different office 365 accounts, true on the web and if using app. Also true if just using app and add a family account. Any suggestions?

We all know you can use the web app, yes we know we know we know... but if Microsoft really wants to make this viable they should allow us to do this directly in the application itself, just like Slack does. Also you can do this in the iOS app, I have 2 companies at the same time and just switch between the companies, so it is obviously possible for Microsoft to do this... so lets get this done!!!
ANd sometime it is not so easy to use the web app, cause if you have office 365 open for one company in your browser th eonly other way is to open another browser or use incognito, it is very annoying.

Here is a workaround. Thanks Daniel Šmon for taking the time to write a post for it:
As demo a few days ago on YouTube by Microsoft Mechanics, use the power of installing App via the browser. Works like a charm and yes stop using rich client instead.

i have 1 O365 business account for my own business. 1 other O365 business account as associate for another company and 1 O365 personal and would like to switch seamless between them.....

1. Need simultaneous login to multiple corporate paid accounts on Teams. A consistent solution that also applies to outlook and Office will be useful.
2. Also make any certificate deployment and selection automatic for seamless user experience, if you need multiple certificates for this.
3. Ability to login to personal O365 at the same time will also be useful, especially in these stressful times.
From MS top corporate customers trying to run their business with people working from home, simultaneous multiple account login to O365/Teams and improvements to Azure VDI management are likely to be among the top asks.
This should be fast-tracked now due to everyone working from home due to Covid-19 and having to communicate in different ways to keep in touch.
I'm logging in and out of Teams multiple times per day to switch between accounts. This is a miserable experience and I have no choice in the matter.
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. What a lie. IF YOU HAVE TO SIGN IN AND OUT BETWEEN THE ACCOUNTS TO SEE NOTIFICATIONS THEN YOU AREN'T USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS. Why is it so hard? Slack did this on like day 1 almost it seems....
I cannot accept this as follow-on product for skype without this.
Defintely a required function to be able to interact with multiple team accounts
What's the status of this issue?? It works in the mobile app, but not in the locally installed Teams application on my laptop.
Am I the only one who thinks Microsoft should scrap all of it disparate services and apps, stop trying to make things work through "integrations" (for lack of a better term), and just build Teams again from scratch with ALL of the top features requested by it's users? I realize they may be profiting from splitting everything up and charging separately for some functionality, but this could backfire if people get frustrated and stop using Teams. My two cents.
Any news from Microsoft yet?
We've got to be getting closer now, huh? At this point let me test out the beta. I don't care if it's insecure and buggy, just let me get notifications from all my accounts on one device!
We need this implemented as soon as possible, please. Last update in this thread was from 12/13/2019. Almost 4 months later, do we have any news?
My practice is part of a much larger group of individual practices. The larger group runs a Teams account with all of the heads of >100 clinics. My office has its own, separate O365 sub and is trying to use Teams as well. It is a hassle for me to get on the big account to see what the larger group is doing, then having to signout out to get back in to my clinic's teams O365 teams account.
While a switch account option would be better than the current desktop options, what would be best is if both accounts could be logged in at once.

URGENT please to sort the multiple accounts access. Thank you!
How has this feature been a request for so long and Microsoft has still not reacted to the request? The fact that you can't receive notifications from all connected Team accounts is so frustrating. Could someone please give an answer to if this feature will be released in the near future? @MicrosoftTeams
