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.
Alex & the Teams team

This would be a really useful addition
This is so important for a broader acceptance of Teams not only within our organization, but for our partnering organizations as well. I keep hearing this complain every single time I am adding an external guest to a team!
Please push this issue forward!

We are in the middle of a decision process between Slack and Microsoft Teams. Lacking this feature is the most important decider at the moment. And it does not seem that they are able to solve this.
Needs to allow multiple accounts the same as Hangouts. It is necessary to allow users to be able to access business and personal account on same teams session
Need this asap
jeremi Vermette commented
Yes please, need this ASAP! This is really time consuming.
For service sel phones we need the possibility, that multiple user could log in. Also on the PC version some people have two resources ("service"@ and firstname.lastname@)
Without this MS Teams (and Skype for Business) is almost useless for consulting businesses!
This makes Teams un-usable for our organization. As a company that owns multiple other smaller companies on different domains Teams is useless without this feature. If there was some sort of indication as to when they were going to implement this we could hold off. I need to look for other solutions instead.
Once this is in place we can force our people to move over to Teams, instead of using WhatsApp.
It should be as easy as work with different accounts in Outlook.

Is this on the official roadmap website? Can you please update the status of this? It's really a must-have.
Update and ETA please. If this isn't going to happen please let us know.
Do we have an update on this yet? This has been on the wish list for months now...

So more SFB licensing will not be purchasable from 1st July 2019. (SFB Plan 2 standalone)
How does MS intend to fix the lack of voice/UC functionality when you're working in a guest tenant in MS Team?
At present, if you change to another Tenant's team as a guest, you become unavailable for people in your organisation.
When will Microsoft "Team" become Microsoft "Teams"?

Without this feature, it will be extremely difficult once Business Skype is phased out. I work with 4 different MSO365 accounts/companies. Even creating a "shell" that would allow the running of multiple Team sessions each logged into a different account would help. You have to make this feature available BEFORE you phase out Business Skype.

This taking ages...
It's not a long term fix, but I use the desktop Yammer app for one account and an Edge browser session to connect to my other account concurrently.

It is possible to use multiple Team Accounts at the same time with the right architecture.
I am Global Admin for 7 different Office 365 organisations and had to find a solution to use multiple Teams in multiple Organisations, with single login.

Use your primary Organisation account for the request.
