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.

Receiving live notifications from different accounts is key.
this is sooo necessary.
There are so many things that could be improved but this is one of the key issues.

Looking forward to see this in production!

Can you please consider to add in seamless multi-tenancy as slack has. Remove the "switching" notification that reveals I can still only remain logged into one account at the same time, and allow for all teams accounts to be logged in at the same time.

Is there any update on this? It has been a year that I have been waiting on this feature. Since I have 2 accounts (2 separate tennants). It is a real pain to disconnect from an account to be able to connect to my second account.
I have two teams accounts in my one teams platform. But when I receive a message on the teams account that I am not currently on, there is no notification for that message. How to enable the notification?

Is there any update on this? It would be a really helpful feature!

A must-have for MSPs who support multiple O365 tenants.

How is this request 3 years old without resolution?
Am i able to switch between two accounts of MS Teams on desktop ?
Justin King commented
No updates sense December ... nearly 6 months ago and this still doesn't work well....
My university has Microsoft Teams for my classes and my office uses Teams also, so it would be amazing that it supports multiple accounts
Karl Kroneck commented
Multiple accounts support on desktop and mobile is a much needed feature for consultants!
David Van De Meer commented
any update for Mac? Its still not possible...
This is a fundamental issue - any updates?
It will be great, if anyone can provide updates on this issue.
I do voluntary work with two schools, a community land trust and a parish council as well as my own little company. All of them have O365 accounts and are all using Teams for meetings during the covid 19 pandemic. It is really difficult juggling between these and I agree with a previous post here: how can you treat the number of pictures on the screen as a higher priority than the basic ability to work with more than one MS365 account?
Can I please get the latest update on this issue?
Dec 2019 update says it is being rolled out in stages, now 6 months on no further update? This is critical failing of Teams and more regular updates are required please Microsoft.

We work with multiple team from different company to support our users. They all need to receive notifications from the follow up in the chat and they are force to switch tenant right now which is simply not efficient. We are force to use Slack right now to be able to work correctly.
Can we at least have a date or something to know when this will be implemented?
Is there any firm date for this working? Fast user tenant switching is useless if you have full accounts on both teams (it only works for guest accounts apparently). I've been using the workaround with the user profile environment variable hack, but that causes problems when you run other applications such as OneDrive (since it now thinks it's in a new user profile).
For the record, I was doing this with Slack in 2016....
