The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
The team is working on changes to the desktop client so recently opened tabs are kept in memory, as long as it doesn’t use too much memory.
I will keep you posted as we make further progress.

Absolutely need this feature. I think the best way to handle it would be to offer the user an option to "pin" or "keep loaded in background" in the tab settings. This way it's up to the user to manage memory. I can't see it being anymore demanding than having a ton of browser tabs open though and a lot of things I would usually have open in a browser could then be moved into Teams.
I think it would also be beneficial for tabs to be able to display notification badges/tab notifications for things like putting your Outlook into a tab.
Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:
- Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook
- Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams
- Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

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.
