  1. Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

    Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

    "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

    "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

    "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

    "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

      Hi everyone — just a heads up that I edited the description to include some of the most poignant comments from this thread. If you have any other info you can share about performance and speed, please keep adding them to the thread here. I’ll routing each to the Perf team, since that really helps for emphasizing urgency, demand, and user pain.

      THANK YOU for helping us make Teams better!

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • Delay navigating between views

      There is a noticeable delay navigating between channels as well as switching between the Chat and Teams tab. This accumulates when I have to frequently switch between individual chats and team chats.

      • Fix unnecessary activation of discrete GPU on MacBook Pro

        Currently, running the Teams app for Mac automatically enables the discrete GPU on MacBook Pro's. (Running the web version in Chrome for Mac also enables the GPU, so it's definitely something the Teams site/code is doing.) This reduces battery life by at least 2x and is a real bummer.

        • Giphy slow search and images load blank

          Improve performance of Giphy. Yes I know it isn't yours but it is so slow at times to load a search result or the gif doesn't load at all. Maybe provide them with free Azure hosting?

            • Make it load faster and load in the background.

              Right now it simply loads too slowly, and it has that massive in-your-face splash screen while doing it.

              • Keep tab content in memory

                Right now, switching between tabs is painfully slow since tab content is reloaded everytime you visit a tab. (Especially true for integrated web services like Wrike)

                • play video in teams

                  Please!! add video playback directly in teams!!
                  Is a nightmare to have to download it or open it in the browser and login every time, specially if you work in a lot of video projects

                  • Cache Something, Anything

                    My goodness, every time you start Teams it's as though it's the first time. Most or all history is gone until it pulls it down from the cloud again. If you want us to use it, make it start in less than 60 seconds.

                      • Teams should respect the Display scale of the display it is on, not only of Main screen (Windows)

                        Running Windows on a Retina MacBook with an external monitor I have the scale of the retina display set to 175% and the external (Main display) to 100%.

                        Now if the main screen (seemingly only on boot counts) is the external one, the teams interface is so small that it is basically illegible. If the external monitor is disconnected while booting the teams UI is normal on the Retina display, but gigantic on the external one, when connected. Other apps seem to handle this, it would be nice if Teams could, too!

                            • Adding attachments is super slow, it really need speedup

                              Addign attachments is very slow process. Something minuscule like 50kb sile adding takes 5-10 sec. Lager files naturally longer. It should be instantaneous.

                              And why I have to wait for the upload at first place before I can send an message. It should be background process.

                              • It takes far too long IMHO for MS Teams to load after a reboot or logging on as a new user.

                                And while it's loading, I can't really do anything else – even on a relatively new Dell laptop with i7 processor.

                                    • speed when opening tabs

                                      When I open a tab (a OneNote tab for instance) there is a 2 - 3 seconds delay while it loads.
                                      This even happens everytime I switch tabs, which is extremely annoyng. Maybe you could implement a cache or something to prevent this?

                                          The UI is very poorly responsive causing lot of negative feedback internally. We would like to move all our internal conversations to Teams but unable to progress because of the performance constraints.
