The Microsoft Teams app can be used on Android and iOS devices. However it is not available for Windows devices.
In addition to the Teams app I recommend that you download the Microsoft Office app so you can edit any files on your mobile device. The Microsoft office app includes Word, PowerPoint and Excel all combined in the one app.

First select the three ellipses at the top of your mobile device to see all the Accounts and Orgs you are associated to. And second select the account and organisation you want to switch to. In summary it is seamless to switch between your accounts.
Is it possible to stop getting Teams notifications on my mobile device outside of work hours?
Yes the Teams mobile app has a Quiet hours feature which can block all Teams notifications.
I recommend that you set this up straight away if you don’t want to be interrupted outside office hours.
From your Team mobile App just select the hamburger menu and select ‘Notifications’ and then select your quiet hours (e.g. 18:00 to 09:00) and then your quiet days (e.g. Saturday and Sunday).
For instance this is particularly useful if working for a global company and stopping those alerts at 03:00 in the morning that wake you up.
