Battery life on iOS & Android
According to iOS Battery report, Teams is responsible for 24% of my battery usage. I am not actively running or using the program, so I assume this is related to background tasks / notifications.
We are continually working on improving battery life. One thing that may help in the meantime is using Dark theme, which was a top mobile request added to Teams mobile in February.
Could you please stop working and start fixing it!
Prepare a lighter version for android. It takes too much battery.
My battery which used to be ok for more 24 hours
Is draining in 12-13 hours after installing teams.
I cannot uninstall it as my company is using it for official communication.But 5000 Mah is not enough. Then what can we do.
The desktop version is fine.
Sometimes screensharing is not working.
Unable give or take control.
I have not used Teams on my phone for last few days, and I had manually closed it. Regardless, Settings > Battery is showing it used 34% for “Background Activity” over the last 24 hours. I just turned off its notifications, so we’ll see what that does, otherwise I’ll just remove the app. Not worth it.

Running iOS 12.4.1, Teams was on screen 3 minutes, background 20 minutes, battery use 44%.
I have to force close Teams between messages for my phone to last the work day.

I'm suffering the same issue. Teams app drained my phone battery so quickly. I used to have 90% battery. Just one hour after I turned on Teams, my phone was flat. Please priorities this issue and get if fixed as soon as possible.
Also, the rendering of this page on mobile is horrendous
Teams is responsible for half my battery drain. So I disabled polling for new updates, but I wouldn’t mind a much lower rate of polling.
Are you guys calculating primes here? This is unusable battery consumption. How did qa miss this?

Teams drains battery in minutes, this is an critical issue to be fixed now - not "continually improve".
Using Samsung S9 with latest android.

Hi all. Yes - good idea... please add your vote to the 5.8k+ others in this thread to keep it top of the Microsoft list! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17219609-teams-uses-600mb-and-is-super-slow
Or search "Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!" to find it in user voice.
It consumes lots of CPU, kills phone battery
1.Teams utilize a phone battery too much 2.Participants’ statuses are not updating immediately 3. Impossible quote anyone 4. Impossible to see if participant read the msg
I am running iOS 12.2 on an iPhone 8. Just yesterday 4/29/19, Teams is suddenly draining my battery at an alarming rate. 45% yesterday, today so far at 3PM it's used 33% 6m screen - 1h 15min backgd. I have closed the app, rebooted the phone and still it is draining my battery.
This is a serious problem. Please advise.

4.6% background drain in 13 minutes on Galaxy Note 9 running Android P
Fix the Teams mobile apps to use minimal power when not being used in the foreground. Android presently identifies Teams as a battery hog when it is supposed to be idling in the background.
Draining battery a ridiculous amount. Almost to the point of unusable. Never had this problem with Skype for business which my company used internally until now we had to change to teams. Our whole company is considering deleting this and not using it any further because of this problem.
I'm experiencing significant battery usage during Teams calls. I just went from 90% battery down to 37% battery during 1.5 hour meeting. It also seems to use significant charge when running in background but i don't have conclusive evidence of that yet. Notifications are disabled.
My cellular connection was 2-3 bars out of 4, so I don't know if that had an impact. I will pay more attention to how standard calls affect battery charge but it really feels like more recent versions of Teams has been killing my charge more than it used to.
iPhone 7 iOS 12.1.4 (16D57)
Teams 1.0.69 build: 1.077.2019030803 (general)
i'm having the same issues with the iOS Apps. 15min Conference took 10 % of my battery
On my Samsung Galaxy S7, my battery life has been poor the last few days. I didn't associate it with the Teams install until I received the pop up Android notification: "an application is consuming a lot of power....would you like to fix?" It was Teams.
I was on a teams call and the battery drained from 100% to 13% on 45 minutes of Teams calls on iOS
