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.

Any progress on this item for mac ?
+1 for an update given how important this feature is for business users.
I can do this in the Android app. It's not yet available in Windows?

Hi, this is a really important feature for me. I am a consultant in a small business. I have a MS Teams account for my own business, accounts for any client organisations that I am embedded within plus a university account for the business school where I am taking an MBA. Currently, I can only see updates across accounts when I check my phone and I need to switch accounts every time that I need to participate in a call. This is incredibly frustrating. This has caused many missed or delayed meetings and my peers and I keep being asked to use WebEx or Zoom instead as Teams is seen as being unreliable. Please fix this.
I am now asking people to use any other service than Teams for all my video calls. Very glad you are working on it but it is very frustrating in the mean time.

This is really needed for Students of school as well. So that they can have their own personal conference among kids and the teacher has a group from school to students.

Please, please, please make this a high priority. If Slack is able to do this, how is it so difficult for Microsoft to implement?
Christian Zehetner commented
We also need this feature very urgent
when is this feature rolling out?
working on it 7 months ago.. and still nothing. very frustrating..
I’m working for 3 several organisations, therefore I need it so urgent...:|
This is SUCH an important feature for me as a freelancer. Please, please, PLEASE front burner this.
I work for 3 different organisations with 3 different email addresses. Do I need to set up 3 different teams accounts
Guys - I echo many of the comments below - WE NEED MULTI-TENANTED Teams, please can you give an update. Slack or others beckon. Thank you
Is there an update on this request? It's good that we can use multiple accounts/tenants on iOS & Android, but we are doing most of our work on our Windows devices/Macs...

It's a bit scary this has been raised as far back as 2016, still isn't fixed in 2020, and is breaking for anyone who engages with multiple different groups at once. Even most IRC clients can manage this, for standards from two decades ago, yet Teams is still stuck in one org only.
Jim Shields commented
Ridiculous that this is not a standard use case that has been implemented.... essential for many businesses

i thought this was me being stupid, just spent an hour trying to set up another teams account on my mac.. :(

Hi @Microsoft. Slack can easily allow people to be a member of multiple channels at the same time. Microsoft makes this super difficult.
If Microsoft wants mid-sized businesses to use Teams, it needs to make it easy for people for different organisations to work together. At the moment Teams is really bad for cross-organisational collaboration
