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 updates on this one?
I had SfB taken away from me over the weekend telling me that I have been switched to Teams - Thank you MS - I used both, one for one client and the other for the other client... As Teams does not yet support multiple accounts, I have to log in and log out. This is sh1t when a client calls me on the account that is not logged in! It must be lovely in your little singular bubble MS... Not happy....
Any progress updates on this?
Yes - Skype for Business has just been taken from us - now teams doesn't show my favourites from different organisations and I can't easily switch between accounts.
Need this feature ASAP!

As a consultant, this is a major source of difficulty for me, and I would highly value this additional feature.

Any idea when this will be released? Need this feature as well, as I run two companies both running 365 and Teams as our core communication medium....
Often admin and one organisation may have multiple office accounts.
There for able to login to multiple office team accounts very usual to manage different channel of organisation teams.

I'm so desperate for this feature!!! I have to use 3 different browser profile to get different TEAMS tenants running. its nightmare!
Hey @Alex... Can you speed that a little bit up? I am working with 3 Companys and this the workflow over 3 Accounts is horrible,.,

I have teammates that are a part of a different group within my organization. This individual is not able to share their screen during meetings and participate in some activities.
It would be helpful if in teams you are able to use multiple different accounts easily so that you can join from different organizations.

Any news on the ETA?
Agree with all the comments below - I need this urgently (IOS and Windows 10). In the interim, I have been using Franz which allows multiple TEAMS logons. I tried a couple of the other similar products but this is the most stable at the moment. In the short term it allows be to get round the issue BUT it's very memory hungry.
To allow access to and switching between different teams is a major feature requirement before MS Teams can claim to be a serious competition for Slack!
Happy to try Teams again once that's working

>Why, because SharePoint includes the name of your business in its URL: there was a cheer at some recent SP conference where they announced URLs could be changed. But I suspect that the URL of an Office 365 group, not the tenant...
We need this feature, it's very important to collaborate with external users. When I discovered that it wasn't possible, I thought... it's a big bug ****! I don't belive. Please develop it to help collaboration between the companies.
