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.
The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.
You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.
Has this feature been updated yet for desktop? I need to add two different school accounts to one, so it's easier to manger on my laptop. I can do it from the phone, but I need to demo software, any suggestions?
is this working now?
scroll down to the next page, there is an answer from MS regarding ETA:
"currently we don't have an ETA on the release on this feature. We thank you for your patience in this matter."
all we can do is ask them in soc.networks and via corporate channels, not here..
Update on ETA?

Now more than ever!!! Please
It's embarassing that this isn't working yet. Switching is even slower with all the craziness happening and the product barely functions if you try to switch.
Time to go zoom or slack
Use Slack instead! MS has been "working" on this for 3 years.
Yup a much needed feature ... Skype for business didn't have this !!
I'm members of several organisations. It is increasingly frustrating to work with them as checking messages in one tenant and then swapping to the next makes you miss messages in another one. It is just unbearable to work with several organisations.
just bought an iPad to do this. Brilliant; to boost also sales of other companies

Hi. Do we have update on this? It's hard to switch accounts just to see check if you have a chat....
@alex admin What's the update on multiple teams account rollout on Mac?
I think with the mass move to home working this feature should get fast tracked. Many users will have multiple Teams accounts and need to have them accessible all the time.

Come one guys! How many years Microsoft needs to implement that? Everyone is asking for it... It's the top 1 item on the public request list...
I've been searching for this very specific function. I use three mail addresses (one professional, one private and one for my NGO), but would like to see all my channels in one desktop, or at least being able to pre-register several e-mail addresses to switch from one address to another.
Can confirm it is working as expected on iOS.

When will you add this futurs very important to all of us?
Just wanna tell you that I am also one of the persons that needs this functionality very urgently! Teams is great, but not being able to use it in multiple environments is crazy!
Even having more MS Office 365 accounts does not help you!
It's urgent for this tool (Teams & O365) to be aligned with competitors such as Slack.
And as several of other people have already mentioned - that will become more than helpful for consultants working with different clients.
Thank you !
Yep. Everyone wants this. I know this is not new news, and no it's not ideal.... but this does work, after a fashion.
