The team is still reviewing this item. I hope to know of a decision soon.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.Derek Gabriel commented
This feature is holding up a 100 user deployment... would love an update...
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.

Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.
A fix for this is being worked on. We hope to have a fix in internal Microsoft rings soon for testing. I don’t have a timeline for release externally at this point, but will keep you posted.
The team is happy to announce that this functionality is now available through the Presence Graph API which is now in public Beta! We have additional functionality planned for the API so please keep checking back for updates.
Please note that this is a beta version of the API and may be subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

I’m happy to share that the team has started exploring designs for this feature.

I have a client that needs this functionality bad, because staff like to direct message the COO on the weekends, almost need some heiarchical control on who can message who, like group A can message everyone, group B can only message others in group B...
Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.
