As we announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019 this morning, we are excited to confirm that Multi-window capabilities are coming to Microsoft Teams, and will start rolling out to the public ring early next year!
Alex & the Teams team
We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.
Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.
This request has been accepted by the feature team and is in the queue.
It isn’t the neatest, but as a workaround you can request control in order to do this.
I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.

Clippy is flattered by all the attention but plans to continue his retirement.

Seems like this worked for a while but my nose headphones quit working a week or 2 ago
Thank you so much for this feedback. I was actually sitting with a user yesterday who was struggling to add users to a channel because she was typing in names one by one, which is a normal inclination. I showed her that she can put any distribution list into the field (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org) and it would invite everyone who is on that email address. Try it out and let me know if you have any more questions. I’ve also routed this feedback to design so they can implement a sign or something to show people that they can do this.
Thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!

This needs more than a contact or distribution list, those are items controlled by admins. Also, it doesn't make sense to make a contact list of people outside your org for an ephemeral team.
