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 ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.
And we desperately need for desktop!
Hi Alex, not sure what you mean by "The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today." When I use Teams on my iPad, I still need to switch between different Teams instances to access. They are not shown in the one pane/instance.
Would like login into team with multiple accounts and join the meeting should popup which account to use and then allow user to join based on the account selected
Glad to see your working on it. It will help me a lot as I have different teams for different costumers!
The use case is very simple, We want teams client more like Outlook , user can add multiple mail accounts and working together , same way, we want Teams client can add multiple accounts in same GUI interface and working together, we can jump to each account and check msgs and other functions , not switch account.

Necessary for outside guest accounts we have invited but who already have another MS account. Thanks.

I am currently working for 2 different educational departments for which I both have to use Teams in order to be able to schedule and teach. Please make this possible without signig out all the time! As a guest user for one account this was possible but now I need more functionalities.
Hello @Alex what is been done about having the ability to use multiple teams account in the desktop app? It would great to have it.
Our company wants to move from Slack to Teams, but this is a prerequisite.
fast switching is not working when you need to look at something in another account when you in a teams meeting and info you need is in another account since it terminates any active calls/mtg. Also there is no real notifications for alerts in for other accounts, i'm missing things in the other non active accounts. Why can you have a single pane of glass with all the accounts without switching back in forth.
Microsoft, Please do something!!!
MS, Please bump this to high need. We run a multi tenant environment because of china data laws.
With the new ban coming into place with wechatt we need a real global solution that is unified. Not switching between tenants etc.
We love teams and want to use that but our other tenant doesn't have the visibility to see all the chats, teams, etc without switching between the two multiple times a day.
Like other users have stated. We need a unified single pane of glass experience.
List the different chats or teams in different colors per tenant or add a prefix/suffix to them to denote what tenant/domain that thread is tide to.
This is urgently needed. You've had the user request and have been "working on it" for OVER 3 YEARS now (Mar 12, 2017).
Make this happen. Even if is a half way solution with updates in the future. roll out something to bridge the issue the user base is having. You will loose customers to slack and others that offer these features.

Unless I am missing something the solution on the phones still does not solve the problem, as you need to effectively context switch between the accounts to actually see/respond to messages. What we are asking for, and require, is a single pane of glass that allows us to see all our accounts Teams and contacts in one place without having to toggle between them.
The phone solution, functionally, is the same behavior as the "Guest" experience - which is downright terrible.

If you are looking for a way to use multiple Teams account at the same time, you should check out Basaas. I am also using two accounts as well and my solution for this problem is Basaas. This works perfectly for me. You can add as many accounts as you need. And there's a free version. www.basaas.com

Yeah, this needs to get fixed ASAP. Highest priority.
Alex, I don't think this is correct?
"The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today"
The experience is broadly the same on mobile as on the desktop i.e. you have to switch account/organisation.

I stopped looking for a few months due to the pandemic ... then thought "surely with all the remote operations becoming norm Microsoft would put man hours into this ...."
What's going on here? I see claims that it works in IOS/Android ... but if so ... not how we need it to. Are we listening to feedback?
Please speed up this, I am trying to encourage others to use this and it is the ONLY thing that is stopping us - probably move to google if it’s not sorted soon.
