We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
This is working today in the web client on Edge & Chrome. The team is actively investigating feasibility in the desktop client.
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.
Alex & the Teams team
If the design paradigm of voice services in Teams were not so entirely brain-damaged, by locking a single phone number to a user account or faux-user service object, the service would be more stable and prospective customers would not have to ask to have multiple user account active at the same time.
This refinement if properly implemented could provide Teams customers functionality equivalent to multi-line corporate phones.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
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

Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
This item remains on the backlog.
This continues to be on our backlog due to prioritization of other work items. We will update when there is more to share.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
The team continues to make progress on this. We will share more details as we have them.
We are continually working on improving battery life. One thing that may help in the meantime is using Dark theme, which was a top mobile request added to Teams mobile in February.
Fix the Teams mobile apps to use minimal power when not being used in the foreground. Android presently identifies Teams as a battery hog when it is supposed to be idling in the background.
The team has updated the default sound for Teams notifications so it is more noticeable. We are in final testing, with a goal to release the new sound by the end of this quarter.
