    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.

    This feature should be in the top 10 requirements as it puts Teams under nearly every other competing product. Is not 'important' is 'required'.

    I should say, one small work around is to log into Teams using Edge, but for each company account you belong to, use a different account on your computer. This way you can launch X Edge browsers, where each is running 'as' another user. This way you can have each browser represent your work for each company. Thus they can all have Teams running and logged into different accounts. One Edge browser will not auto log in/out while you use it with the associated company.

    Brief steps to launching Edge as another user, then log into Teams again using different credentials:

    1. Make a shortcut to:
    %windir%\explorer.exe shell:Appsfolder\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe!MicrosoftEdge

    2. Then you can run it as a different user by going to Application Tools -> Manage then clicking the dropdown and selecting "Run as another user".
    (Optional) If Shift + Right Clicking and selecting "Run as another user" works for you then you can do that instead.

    Not having this feature means some Microsoft apps have it, others don't. This means ultimately you can't use the full power of the apps unless you are someone who works for only one company. Another reason why Slack is worth billions, and Teams isn't being used by the larger community. How can something stopping Microsoft from gaining parity against competitors come down to a simple resource issue.... Teams, and for that matter all apps in 365 eco system, will never gain the usage it needs if they can't support users participating in multiple teams. 10 years ago this might have been OK, but not in today's world.
