High Memory/RAM Usage
Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my computer
Thank you for your recent votes on the individual performance items. High memory and RAM usage is something we are continuously working to improve, and the team is hard at work on fixes.
If interested, you can find more details on how Teams currently uses Memory at https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/teams-memory-usage-perf.
Absolutely pathetic lack of progress on this. Instead of closing of the root issue (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17219609-teams-uses-600mb-and-is-super-slow) to try and get it off the "Top ideas" list, please put in the work to address the MANY MANY issues with Teams' performance on every platform. It has been YEARS.
"we are continuously working to improve" WTF ?!
The original post is dated 2018, and it actually got (far) worst since then !
Not sure how it works at M$ but most other (decent) software company would probably have replaced the whole developer team for such bad results...
If teams consumes more memory on systems with more memory, that explains a lot..
Still going to ask the question. WHY is an idle app in the background actively consuming more memory than MOST of the productivity apps in the foreground?
If teams in in the foreground, in a call, opening a document sure, the memory use makes sense.
But WHY is the idle use so high?
In a Terminal Services / WVD type setup where you have several users on the same box. Even with the WVD optimized version (some features stripped) of teams the relative memory use on the host vs other apps is horrible!
If I am lucky teams consumes 300-500MB of ram per WVD user (when idle) on the host, that is brutal if I am trying to maximize user density.. Goes well over a 1GB per user during a call.
1gb of RAM usage just for idling and some chatting may be the worst memory management of all time.
Starting up Teams fresh immediately starts using over 1GB in RAM. After about an hour using it, it is over 2GB!!!! It gets to the point of being unusable
The hige Memory consumption by Teams kills other processes!
The min 1 GB of Memory is far too much for this piece of software
The huge consumption let us evaluate changing from teams to other alternative in our organziation. The min 1 GB of Memory is far too much for this piece of software

FFS! I'm even using one of your Microsoft Surface Pro 6 devices....
Teams in long run crashes GFX driver and all connected monitors with internal (if it is a laptop) become black and unresponsive.

I have more the 2GB of RAM usage in Win10. That has started recently, probably with the new version. on Could be a bug?

This is a top priority for me
This is a top priority for me, especially on a pro ussage

I have only 4 Gb memory and when I uses Teams my system hangs. Teams uses 1.5gb. Have no choice but to use google meet now.
We consistently find that Teams uses huge amount of memory slowing computers (Apple & PC) - we are using Zoom now for external calls and internal calls as a backup - we are considering going to Zoom if this continues sadly
Teams uses so much local power - we are using Zoom instead which seems a shame!
Jealous of all these other comments with ~500 MB of usage. I'm sitting at 1.6 GB of RAM currently used with a single Teams window open.
I vote this is a priority!
Teams usually takes my PC 350-500 MB, much higher than the other communication service.

Pretty awful that the original thread gaining ALOT of steam (Teams is using 600+ Mb RAM) is now somewhat "censored" in a way. This application is an absolute resource hog/monster. My work computer is rendered useless by this application. Electron as a framework MUST be stopped, I expect more attention/sophistication from a company like Microsoft!
