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.
The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop and web clients. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.
we really need to access teams from different organisations in the app without any login or switch.
Instant messaging in different teams form different organisation must be available

So now its the Fall, and no news?
Fast tenant switching is such a minor user requirement that I don't think any of us will use it.
What we all need NOW is the ability to interact with different teams over multiple organisations at the same time, and I mean at the same time. On a teams conf call with org A and someone in org B sends me a message that I can respond to without interrupting the call I am on.
No logging in/out etc - all my teams accounts work at the same time, and I now have four of them.
As the others a release date would be great.
Also I wonder about you said Alex : "Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching."
Does it means that while in a Teams call we will still not be able to switch to another tenant to check something without killing the call ?
Clearly this is mandatory. Uses cases : Internal company call & need to check a data on a customer teams. It happens everyday.

I work as a consultant with many companies and this is must needed feature for me. Most of my clients have moved to Teams from Slack. I constantly need to sign out and sign in with different teams account.

Any update on "Fall" Release? this is clearly a show stopper for the hundreds of users who have commented and the thousands who haven't.
As we are now essentially in Fall when can we expect to see some outcomes?
Thank you for supporting this in the mobile iOS app - just got the update and love how that shows all accounts and the tenants in each account. Much faster switching. Hope the Win10/web app does it in a similar manner!
It's urgent to have this feature, as it's one of the main pros of Slack that are still lacking on Teams!!
any update for this, please? microsoft?

Hi @Alex, Do we have any update on the testing? Is it being implemented anytime sooner?
Brad Sclar commented
This is a much needed feature and I am delighted it is in development. The sooner it is ready the better. Thank you, Brad Sclar
Martin Sebek commented
is somehow possible to join test team for this feature?
Hi, we would also be verry happy if this feature will be implemented.

At the moment it's useless if you work with more that one company. Please make a single screen with all my groups and notifications.

I found Team desktop app has multiple tenants support but it is inconvenience to switch between them. Furthermore, it takes time to switch.
I would suggest to have left icon with custom-able name in Teams. Such as Teams - TenantA, Teams -TenantB.
Any further update on release other then 'fall'? Looking forward to this!

I have some clients with that need, they have several projects (with different email accounts), and need an easy access to their teams/projects.

this is long overdue, I work for 2 different companies and each uses their own teams tenant. There is no way to login with 2 accounts and I ended up having to install VMware workstation and run teams inside logged to another server. What a messy work around!
I need to be able to be signed in to multiple users at once! It is frustrating that I need to sign out to acces my files from other teams when I need them.
The current multi tenant support is a very disappointing user experience. If I am logged into my company tenant then I miss notifications all the time in my other tenants as they are not displayed prominently. Maybe the Activity feed can display activity from all tenants? It needs to be much more integrated between tenants to be usable
I'm in agreeance with all the comments below. This feature is a must. It gets frustrating to have a few different browsers open and the app just so I don't miss messages. It's been 2-3 years now since this was raised, hopefully we can really get this soon!!
