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.
5 nov 2020 and still no update! Please make the change for the same mobile number.

Please Microsoft - show us some respect and give an update! - And if this is only one work and one personal account, it's useless for professionals. I'm a consultant and member of multiple organizations, so logging in and out is very annoying and a waste of time. Please allow for multiple organizational accounts in the desktop app, just like on the iOS app.
The pure blindness of Alex's "working on it" and linking it to an entirely separate functionality request is appalling here. This is basic functionality for this sort of App, and the lack of it makes Teams an entirely incomplete and unusable product for many orginizations.
This has been completed.
Check the description: ONE work account and ONE personal account. It is there, I can do that now, HOWEVER THIS IS NOT WHAT OP AND ALL OF US ASKED FOR.
We asked for SEVERAL, not ONE, work accounts. Something that Slack has had for ages. Come on Microsoft, that's BASIC functionality.

Please can you update when this is going to be available? CY2021 is almost half way through. This is a really essential capability for us too!
Hi just wondering if the 1 work/school account plus 1 personal account capability is now in place for Teams? If it is then will/can we use the same mobile (cellphone) for verification for both? I use the same mobile at work and at home.

We need multiple work accounts! This is a huge need for my organization, and I'm sure many others could use this ability.
I use teams desktop app for my client work and teams web for my consultancy practice. Using chromium profles i can have different teams accounts at the same time on the web.

Please share an update on Support for multiple work accounts
I am really looking forward for the ability to work in parallel with multiple tenants without the workaround of using a browser or "browser App" to have the second tenant going....
The (circus or horror, both comply) clowns from Redmond.
How much longer will we have to wait for the really important features like this?!!?!? Stop making EMOJIS and cosmetics.
Those who pay the bills, "MS TEAMS", etc, need really important features for their employees and co-workers, not bells and whistles:
- Multiple accounts
- Preventing constant meeting window minimization
- Configurable login window for more than 2 accounts
- Quick and simple account switching
- Reply to specific messages on conversations
- Ability to navigate (PREVIOUS / NEXT) between pictures on meeting conversation. It is awful having to open and close each picture individually.
Brothers in woe, any workaround for the workaround posted earlier with .cmd which is not working since a few days ago? I feel furious but trying to keep myself...

It is obvious for us in consulting for different companies that we need to be able to use all of our o365 accounts in teams jus as we do in outlook etc. This is a big disadvantage if this isn't implemented asap
When will this be done commented
If slack can do it, why can't you guys?
Please get this donw asap. Clients are staying / migrating to Slakc becasue the multi-workspace is not available.
Switching ORGs everytime is NOT a solution :)
Microsoft development team managed to work on removing fullscreen mode, then reverting it back, adding "together mode", because someone thought it will be fun, rearranging layouts many times, but not putting any effort into multiple accounts support. In my company, such useless developers/designers would be fired because of wasting time, but thats MS, and users are somewhere behind impenetrable Support wall. 4 years after first promise was given!!.. That definitely means that MS does not care if they fulfill their promises or not.

Is there any update on this topic? The "working on it" flag has been applied half a year ago and still there's no working implementation!
