I have set up Google as an IDP in Azure AD . We have tested to invite gmail users to Sharepoint and it works wonders.
But when invited users try to open Teams in the browser. they get instantly logged out.
Here is a video of the problem https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrvDnyypDfI
Does someone know if its possible or has someone actually succeeded in to use google as an IDP for Guests in MIcrosoft Teams? or am i bashing my head into an impenetrable wall of my own creation?

So i have tested this thoroughly now.
If you have added Google as IDP in Azure AD then the following is true.
If you have enabled One-Time Passcode for guests (Preview)
So i have now removed the google IDP. The ones that has used google IDP to accept the invitations will have to be removed, and reinvited. Issues will occur probably..
Right now its set up as default... and the process is as following

Were you ever able to resolve this using the gmail federation rather than reverting back to using Microsoft accounts for Google users? We're seeing the same behavior and I'd hate to roll back the Google federation feature.

I'm curious, did you try using the teams app instead of the web client? I wonder if it would have behaved differently?

The MS support crew reported is as not working iirc, i believe that it will be changed during april. Contact MS support to get the correct answer.
We disabled it until its confirmed as working.

@Juan Carlos González Martín - Several users at my company are experiencing intermittent issues with Gmail accounts, specifically when a meeting request is sent (whether it was created in Teams or Outlook). When meeting request email is sent to users with Gmail accounts, often they are returned with the following error:
This is the mail delivery agent at Symantec Email Security.cloud. I was unable to deliver your message to the following addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org
Reason: 550-5.7.1 [126.96.36.199 14] Messages missing a valid address in From:
550 5.7.1 header, or having no From: header, are not accepted. m1si4208096qvb.184 - gsmtp
The screenshot is shown below.
This occurs more times than not yet it is intermittent. I have had no issues with emails going to Yahoo.com emails. Do we need to avoid Gmail user accounts for guest access moving forward?

@Jan Tibell I added my gmail account as a guest but it authorises access against the hotmail account used as a backup email address.
I keep going in circles with Teams re-authorising my access but never letting the gmail account in to either the web or Teams app.
Additional problems arise when the backup hotmail address is used in other MS contexts - the bleed through from one account to another is horribly confusing.
If the guest accounts don't work then Teams fails as a useful tool for many of our important collab cases.

@mikemq - Since I originally posted, I have noticed gmail accounts have behaved intermittently in regards to if the user receives the "You have been added to a Teams site" email. Lately it seems to have gotten better and I have not heard of one of my users who failed to get the invite email from Teams.
