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?"
"Make it less CPU heavy, 20% CPU on switch tabs? Really?"
"See attached picture."
Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
Please prioritize this work effort. Thanks!
Well, let's give up on the RAM usage, modern browsers also use gigs of RAM after browsing some pages.
But for CPU, I agree it is crazy, especially when you are in a meeting with a screen being shared, and you simply want to open the conversation tab : if takes more or less 2 or 3 seconds to show the pane, and 2 seconds to hide it (I have a 2019 laptop with 32GB of RAM, so it is not the PC...)
I don't believe that such delays for JS-based code probably, would be acceptable on a website selling some stuff...
Compared to VS Code, which is also an Electron app, the CPU usage is insane (even if you do not use any AV feature).
Teams is really annoying, it consumes a lot of memory on my laptop(700 Mb - 1000 Mb) but when I go over to my brothers laptop it uses 80-90% less memory on his laptop. What is the cause of this.
(This screenshot is on my laptop not my brothers)
Teams is using so much memory it crashes internet connection for the computer. Have to reboot to reconnect
8/4/2020 and we are still having resource usage issues with Teams. Any word on improvements?

Memory is inexpensive these days. Allow Teams to use multiple GB to increase performance if that is what it takes. CPU usage however is a different story. It regularly spikes CPU usage above 50% and that is unacceptable. It happens on hundreds of our machines.
Microsoft Team Crashing my Laptop frequently. The CPU utilization reach to 100 % and I observed it crashed my laptop. Today it crashed four times
In my humble opinion, Teams seems to me to be a Beta version of a software that shouldn't have been released to public. Teams software is slow, unresponsive, freezes my computer. When are we going to receive a decent software version release?

Can we have an update, please? You are coming up to 4 years and the problem has only increased, and responses for 4 years have say you are working on it.
Alex and Microsoft Teams team - any update on this?
Top 3 MS Teams problems in our environment
1) Performance - ram usage
2) Having to delete and reload MS Teams applications. We clear out the following folders
d) Run the "Teams_windows_x64.exe" to reload the program
3) When the user logs on their PC, they have to wait about a minute or so for Microsoft Teams to load. The process keeps their hard drive busy and make it seem "slow" to the users.
This definitely needs work Microsoft - Teams is SO slow compared to tools like Slack etc.
Perhaps consider switching to the same ultra-fast framework that tools like Airtable, Slack etc use that is lightening fast.

Teams development team already should have taken care of it while designing. And even after user base has increased so much, the team is still "working on it" ? Something is not right at Team's team. Time to change the person in charge of development?

Any update or response this issue issue? any work around?
As a large business this is costing $'s to support our customers with questions on why Teams is using so many resources and slowing production. Posts are well over a year old I hope MS can resolve this issue soon. For us we have an SLA of 7 days to resolve an issue so you would be way off that mark.
Teams is ****.
How is it possible to release such a piece of **** ? Did you really all by M$ think "oh well, it's taking 1 Gb of RAM by doing nothing, but this is perfectly acceptable ?"
MacOS is giving teams over 1.5GB of RAM when idle
So no Update from Microsoft since Feb 14?
1.4GB Memory... Wow!
My Teams consumes 1.2 GB RAM :-( .. Please do something
