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.

Slack has this for years and this will become a blocker for our whole Company.
External customers are using Teams and we HAVE TO USE their accounts. How is this possible without this Feature.

I absolutely understand, this might be not that easy to implement. On the desktop, we can use another Teams session with another tenant's account in a browser window. But there is no solution on the mobile device. It would be good to be able to launch the Teams website in major mobile browsers, even if we won't get the full Teams experience.
We tried our best to use Teams but recently had to move over to Slack because of this. This is definitely a huge issue with a few of your tools (Skype for Business being another) as logging in and out to use another account just doesn't work due to the lack of notifications coupled with the poor user experience. It would be great to see some movement here as Teams is a great tool and we would love to be able to use it.

Our company is shifting from Slack to Teams and this is a huge constraint for us. Kindly give this feature some much needed priority.
Any update on the development of this feature? We just switched to teams from slack and this is a major issue for our consulting company.
Yeah, this is super important. I have the same issue, and it's a big one. Teams is a great tool, but key features like this are needed to keep it competitive.
This would be an awesome feature. With the amount of multitasking we all now need to do in our day to day lives, this would be a great addition

Today we can easily switch between multiple tenant accounts in the OneDrive App without a long log off log on process. We need to be able to do the same with Teams, both for the App and for the Desktop.

This has become important for me now as well. My company has been using Teams for the last year, but now some of my university classes are wanting to use it as well. I can’t really take advantage of that because I have to be logged in for work and can’t have multiple accounts logged in.

Yesterday teams refreshed and this feature was added :), today teams refreshed again and it has gone away :(

Five months since the most recent admin update. Please give this feature some love.

This is a problem. A work around I found, while not optimal, is to open one team in the desktop clienet and the other in the web client. Clunky, but it worked for me,
I would also like to be notified when this goes live. I have the same issue.
Recently I came across this problem ... please add this functionality soon. It is a no go when it comes to collaboration between multiple corporations.
It is also a huge probelm for us belonging to different groups. We have to monitor 3 different messaging apps in a huge corporation. Multitenacy is the way to go and would help with our productivity.

This is such an important feature for anyone working with multiple clients - I can hardly understand the reasoning of placing this on a backlog...
This is a huge hindrance to adopting teams.
This should be a TOP priority. I can't recommend Teams to my client, because they are a volunteer group and many of their people already have to use Teams for their "main" job.
Antonio de la Iglesia commented
Huge problema for me also. Please, work on this.
