The iOS app for Teams allows me to be logged onto multiple accounts simultaneously, but not the desktop App.

 

Do we know when this will be coming?

 

Thanks,

Craig

Hi,

 

The latest public information is that Microsoft is testing this internally and with some customers. It is listed as "working on it" in the uservoice request. A comment also says that they are planning to release it "this fall", but that I doubt.

Thanks Linus

 

For those of us that don't live in the US, when is "this fall"?

 

Thanks,

Craig

@Craig Bryden Since I don't live in US I don't know really :) But I guess that their plan was to release it during second half of 2019, but a major thing like this should been listed in the roadmap first and Microsoft should have mentioned it a Ignite, but I haven't heard anything. 

 

A guess from my side is H1 2020.

hello All,

we are now Q2 2020 .. do you have some news about this mandatory feature?

thanks

I represent 4 Office 365 accounts for 4 different companies and can't wait for this feature as it is a pain trying to manage this through different browsers.  Would be great to hear target release.

I don't understand the feature disparity between Teams Mobile vs. Desktop apps.

The multiple accounts is a big deal when collaborating between different organizations, family, friends, ...

 

Another funny one is that you can't reply to an email with the Teams Desktop App, whereas you can with the mobile apps.

 

I love MS Teams, it's awesome! but some of these feature disparities between devices are hard to explain... and very frustrating to use.

@Craig Bryden Thank you for asking this question, I have also had this question for about a year and am now just checking this community for answers. I see there is still no solution.
