Microsoft Teams personal and work/school can now run side-by-side
People using Microsoft Teams on their PC can now have a personal and work/school account open at the same time. Previously, you’d have to toggle between accounts. The functionality makes it much easier to communicate through the personal and work/school versions of Teams at the same time.
I spotted the new functionality after an update to Teams on both of my PCs. The capability has been rolling out gradually since February, according to the Microsoft 365 roadmap.
The icons of the two instances of Microsoft Teams are slightly different to make them easy to differentiate. The personal version of Teams has its logo within a white circle, while the work/school version just shows the app’s logo.
At this time, there isn’t an option to run multiple instances of work/school accounts at the same time.
Microsoft appears to be pushing the personal version of Teams a bit harder these days. A “Chat” app powered by the personal version of Teams will ship with Windows 11.
