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.

Multi-Tenant support is critical, both for an IT consultant that supports multiple clients, and for my clients, who deal with multiple companies and/or colleges. PLEASE make this a priority!
well -- a workaround for whomever really needs it (like me )
install BlueStacks android emulator and Teams app from Google Play on it to login to customer's team. if you need more than one - install "parallels" :)

This is critical, can't express enough how important this feature is. Currently have multiple Clients with Teams and have 3 seperate internal business Teams instances for different Tenants in O365. This is a huge need. Also really critical that this be added to the Mobile App once it is done on the Desktop App.

Really waiting for this feature ... working with multiple Accounts is a pain in the A*** right now
Real keen on this feature as well please. Lots of login and outs again at the moment.
Please add this feature. It really is a must for consultants. The only workaround for 'multiple login' issue now is to open Teams in Firefox, Chrome and Edge (or private windows) under different accounts and not to use the app.
Ideally, having few active O365 accounts, I want to be able to join Teams with any without login off/on and see all the teams, channels, apps simultaneously. They can be labelled or grouped to be distinguished and have default account associated with each.
Please add this feature
I should be able to login in with multiple MSA/AAD accounts within the Teams desktop app or mobile app at one time. Disappointed this wasn't a part of the ability introduced to include multiple tenants associated with one a single MSA/AAD.
Going to add my voice to this. I'm a consultant, and I work with different clients that use Teams. Please include the capability to switch between accounts.
I too love teams and want to be all in. But have had to move three clients to Slack and telegram as it is necessary for us to have this functionality. Please let me know if there is a beta testing group or any way we can help this functionality move forward.
I have 3 Office 365 Accounts. I am a member/admin for teams on each account. How can teams from all three accounts be shown in a single instance of the team app?

Franz does this well. I think Teams can go on with similar way: create a multiple-container app. It should not be any difficulty.
Can't move any of my clients to teams or skype business until this exists.

This seems to be available now; I have a "Team Switch" option in the upper-right of the Teams window, next to the Profile button. Not sure if this is because the two tenants are B2B-interconnected and I use the same credentials for both...? This is on Teams 1.1.00.26352 on Mac and 1.1.00.25457 on Win10.
Hi, Teams's team!
I am a fan o Teams, Slack might have arrived first, but Teams display originality and also a nice clean style! It is not a failure multiple accounts are unavailable in first release. But it is a crucial requirement for a complete solution towards enterprise communication. Please have this a priority, don't let another Microsoft product die due to lack of critical improvements.

Totally idiotic this wasn't a first release feature.
I work at client sites a lot. So I need to have access to my company Teams account and also my client's Teams account. Having ability to connect via multiple Teams account will help us move out of Slack and into Teams.

We are also using Slack for 95% of our collaboration because multiple simultaneous accounts is still not supported in Teams.
