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.

People have been requesting for 2 years for this, and now Skype for business will not work any more, and yet you are still testing this , fall is almost over guys and we simply cannot be working like this. I have at least three accounts that I want to be able to monitor all the time. this is causing me a lot of inconvenience and missing work opportunities!!!!
When is this coming out???

Steve Cook commented
Any update on this?
Thanks Alex, please do let us know.
Would like to be able to receive notifications from 2 separate accounts in Android app. Currently, what ever account is selected gets notifications only.

Hi Alex, is there any update on switching teams account on desktop. You pointed it will be release in the Fall
Luis E. Diego commented
It will look something like this.
Any update on the multi-tenant feature for TEAMS ?
As a user that works with multiple organizations, I've ended up having to open the Teams native client, and then multiple different browsers with each of the different organizations to keep track of my conversations.
Can we please get an update on the timeline for the full, concurrent-use scenario that Slack has had since the beginning? I was hoping this would be announced at Ignite, but it was not. :/

Can't wait to see this feature. As I work with a stack of orgs, it is super frustrating having to sign in and out of multiple accounts.

What we need is for all tenants a user has access to to be consolidated into one screen view. No more need to switch.
work faster please. having to switch logins is a pain. maybe have it pop out into a separate pane now that pop-out is being GA soon?
Multiple Teams accounts- I am able to set up two accounts on my iPhone and relatively easy to switch accounts. Still on laptop I do not see this feature. Is it still in development?
Need an update on this feature. Something Microsoft may not realize is the more you adopt Teams, the larger this issue becomes. If you use Teams Calling and Audio Conferencing, you lose the ability to receive phone calls while in a different directory/tenant. Calls and meetings also abruptly drop if you are cleaning up email during a call and click a missed Teams message that happens to be in a separate tenant to switch over. No "are you sure" message or anything. Teams just logs you out, drops your call/meeting, and switches over.
