It is so slow on windows 10
Try to edit a message on "Team" X and put a ~300 KB image from a "Chat" Y.
The whole channel switch, image downloading, switch back, enter edit mode (even with keyboard shortcut (arrow up)), and inserting the image takes like 12 seconds in a 4000 dollar laptop with 60 Mbps connection.
If you just want to clarify or correct a message you just posted with a better image in a hot conversation, you won't make it. Half of the users will see the original/wrong one.
* Fix that lag between channel switch. It should be like 0.2 seconds
* Right clicking and copying a thumbnail should copy the original image, not the thumbnail (facepalm)
try resetting the Cryptographic services
Teams is frequently very frustratingly slow when typing text (Windows 10 desktop). I can barely type in the "Give feedback" box in Teams because it lags so badly. I type a word and then have to wait a couple of seconds before the word appears! Likewise it is slow to type text in the chat area. I think this awfully slow performance might be related to the fact that my colleague and I have a large number of messages in the chat area because we've been discussing work topics in detail for a long time. However, it is really essential for Teams to support a large number of chat messages because Teams is intended for companies to use.
Another frustrating problem is that whenever I reopen Teams, or whenever I move away from the chat area and then later return to the chat area, the chat is NOT scrolled to the most recent message at the bottom. I have to use the scrollbar every time in order to scroll down to the most recent message. Furthermore, it is slow to use the scrollbar to scroll to the bottom because it takes time to load the messages. It is also slow to switch between the "Chat" and "Teams" areas of Teams.

Another reason to turn me away from MS. Perhaps I am turning into a dinosaur but in the past i was able to decide what programmes opened on start up but now it seems impossible. I never asked for MS teams nor skype for business (at least not that I am aware of) but they are both there, right in my face everytime I start up.
It has slowed opening up my computer heaps I want to delete it
Given that Skype for Business and logon script are competing for CPU, Teams is another that adds to the burden...It's not clear to me when Teams searches for updates (at launch or during use)?

Over a year after and it is now clear that this will never be fixed.. What a bummer, could have been a great product..
It's taking around 10 seconds just to start ... then it's slow everywhere.
I agree, the slow performance of this app on a brand new, top-of-the-line computer is unacceptable. This app needs to focus on doing its primary job well before getting into a bunch of useless-to-most-of-us add-ons. This app should start like lightning and clicking around in it should be blazing fast, I should not have issues starting the app three minutes ahead of a meeting and having to stress about how long it takes to initialize and get into the meeting.

Though wiki on a group is a good ideia, editing there feels slow and becomes anoying. After that i noticed the hole package feels slow, thats why teams for me is odd.
When are Microsoft actually going to make a product that's better than before?
This is terrible.
Staff refuse to use it because it is clunky and slow. They use the competitor whatsapp instead because it frees them to actually be more productive.
Notifications are slow.
Switching channels is slow.
Adding attachments is slow.
Live chatting is slow.
Launching the app is slow.
Finding staff to add to a team is slow.
Hmmmm.... There's a theme here.
Just like the 100s of pages of User Voice search results for the word 'slow'.
... And you're going to kill Skype4B and drag them to this slow rubbish...?
Hey Microsoft devs, try using Whatsapp on your Websites client and see how fast it is!
That's what teams need to be like.
Our staff interact on collaborative documents over whatsapp because teams is sooooooo slow.
Adding an attachment is even worse.
Beyond slow. May be switching my recommendation on Teams today.

It's slow everywhere. In fact it seems MS has designed "slow" into every product released in the last few years. It's just an awful experience all around.

It's too slow even to switch from one private conversation to another its cloggy if you chat alot with the same user it can even reach high lags, we are forced to clear the cache in our user files for it to become fast again.
Maybe add a clear cache button until its fixed?

When i load Teams, it takes a long time to load the app. Once the app has loaded switching between the wiki, chat, and other tabs is very slow. I think it would be great if the Teams team spent some time and resources just improving the overall experience for its users. Teams is an important part of the O365, so I think before you add any more features then take a few updates and clean up some of the mess. Let's make it more stable and speedy.
@MF is right. Switching between the 'Chat' to 'Teams' tabs is pitifully slow even on 13 month old hardware it's actually mad that this software isn't more optimized running on the flagship OS made by the same manufacturer of the software AKA MS.
They should hire people from VS Code team. Both VS Code and Teams are electron based apps but VS Code is so much more optimized...
You're web app is way more responsive. The bar at the top saying to download the desktop app for an even faster experience is a complete crock at this point.
Once the web app has the call functionality (hopefully with screen sharing) I see no reason to even download the app.
