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 is a MAJOR function that is needed, I have several clients and it is difficult to keep hopping between them, Slack has this functionality !!!
Many other feedbacks are just too improve quality of use, this is, however, key deciding factor why my client doesn't way to embrace teams, even though they use 365E1, because it's paint to log out and in for different accounts.

This feature should be in the top 10 requirements as it puts Teams under nearly every other competing product. Is not 'important' is 'required'.
Also need alerts across multiple tenancys

This! We are testing Teams at the moment and this is one very crucial part and we are not switching without this function. Same for private chats. Come on Microsoft - if you want people to switch - make a competitor to Slack! We want to switch but we cannot downgrade in functions!
SO ANNOYING! I use different browsers for different Teams on desktop at the moment, but the web app won't work on mobile browsers. Wish I could move back to Slack 😭

Partners / Consults cannot reasonably sell teams to customers if they themselves cannot join the team within a customer's tenant. Multi-org collaboration within teams cannot happen as a result. It is frustrating to see how short sighted this omission is. Did you learn nothing from the Yammer cluster-F?
Agree this is seriously annoying. I am going to have to move back to slack.
Like the switch button for multiple Facebook accounts, it would be very great !
This is a daily issue
PLease merge this user voice I think it is asking for the same the https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/31925749-list-guest-teams-like-yammer
any update on this - would be a useful addition
A lot of time has passed since Feb 13th - any news?
Any updates on this topic?
Google Hangouts does this very gracefully and quickly for multiple accounts, as does Slack. This is a MUST HAVE for folks who are on the go. Very few people have just one account these days, and it’s very inconvnient to have to log out and re-authenticate as a different user.

Google Chat & Meet UI is just perfect in that sense - Please just copy paste, don't make something more ocmplicated.... :(
You've been mastering the same also on OneDrive (where personal coexist with Business)
I would like to see this up and running sooner! This was a function ~6 months ago and was sad to see it leave. This would make my job as an O365 administrator and project manager for clients much easier with way less transition time between clients. Bless!
I can't start using Teams (or other O365 apps missing multi-tenet functionality) until this feature is implemented. For now I will stick with Slack, Discord, and e-mail.
Outlook is a good example of how it should work. I use Outlook with multiple exchange servers for multiple different companies. (6 exchange accounts in total)

Please update on the status. Our company is deciding to go with Teams or other tools. The ability to connect to multiple teams from different tenant is crucial.
If the Outlook mobile app can handle email accounts from multiple tenancies (I have three on my Galaxy Note), why not Teams?
