Thank you for your continued feedback. We have not forgotten about this ask. This feature remains on our backlog. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
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.
Thank you for your feedback! The team is hard at work on this highly requested feature. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

On my Mac, the real memory usage of all 9 Teams processes is 974MBytes (Real Mem) or 1716MB (Mem). While at the same time Microsoft Word only uses 59.7MB (Real Mem). AutoCAD 2020 uses 55,7MB. Adobe Illustrator uses 141,1MB.
Apple Messages, formerly known as iChat only uses 118.1MB. Adium, another (obsolete) native macOS chat client with multiple protocols uses 106.6MB.
We'd really like Teams to be an application, not a browser. If this trend continues with Outlook as well, we will have to reconsider Microsoft products.
Out of all the web engines available, Chrome is the heaviest in resource usage. Webkit uses a fraction of the resources for identical content.
Please understand that Teams needs to run next to 50 web browser tabs, a Mail Client, 2-3 office suite applications, and in most cases at least 2 other chat applications (WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage, etc.). And it needs to do that on machines that have 8GB of RAM, that are still sold today. And all without killing the performance and SSDs with swap usage.
