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 Any way to get access to this feature early??
Any update after Ignite ?
Apparently it is coming soon. The Android app now has the ability to add multiple accounts to the app. This seems to have been with the most recent update. The desktop app, however, lags behind in functionality and that's where it needs to work like Discord or Slack. It's the only feature missing for me in an otherwise exceptional experience. For no, the android app is more capable than the Windows app and the web site.
Updates @Microsoft? Especially as a guest...This is a productivity killer for so many right now.
I agree that this will make me turn back to Slack.

Same comment as a lot of other users. When is this feature available? Fast switching is not the solution.
Mitch Labrador commented
Any updates on the availability of this feature?
Waiting for collaboration with our partners

Thanks for the update on iOS and Android apps! Any updates on desktop?
Luke Miller commented
Any updates Microsoft? I have multiple companies running Office 365/Teams etc. Would love to be able to run multiple companies from my desktop!

I can confirm Haider Ali's finding. Account switching works on Android. Still waiting on desktop though.
Haider Ali commented
Just noticed that it has been rolled out to iOS and Android apps. Go to settings and Add Account.
This one feature is what is keeping me on Slack for now.
Where is the update? Can we at least get an update about the update? Justin King exactly describes what we all want. Not to mention that notifications are completely broken in MacOS and I only get notified about other org chats after I get an email notification that I haven't seen a chat from an hour ago. This is horrifically broken when compared to Slack.
We are halfway into the fall and there are still no signs of this being rolled out when it's something that's already in place for a lot of other platforms like people have mentioned. When is this coming?
So why is Org account available on mobile app version of Teams but not on desktop app?Any word on whether Tenant and Org switching will be available for DESKTOP App?
@alex. Amy new update on this? I see there are >12k people waiting for this feature that was requested over 2.5 years ago and has been worked on for about a year. Can you send some updates on the status every now and then? Thanx so much

@Pandurangarao Bavala : sorry, but what do you do with this ZIP file exactly ?
Josh Thompson commented
Agree with Justin King also. We are not asking for fast user switching. Need to be able to see all alerts without having to switch. Slacks approach works well.
Mike Zachry commented
I agree with Justin King, fast tenant switching is not the ask. I need to see alerts and messages from all my teams real-time and not be required to switch tenancy to stay up to date.
Justin King commented
and to drive it home: fast tenant switching is not the ask. At all. Not one of the consolidated complaints is saying "i want to logout faster". We want to either:
1. login everywhere at once, bypassing the speed problem
2. have one login receive all information so multiple accounts aren't necessary.
Ether of those work. Faster logout/login is not the ask.
