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.
It requires too many processes! How about only one or two??
Just got a new laptop with 16 GB memory, upgraded from 8 GB. At about the same time, my company migrated to Teams from Skype. My new laptop is slower than the old one! It is always running at about 75% memory utilization and is always paging data to disk. Teams shows as the top memory consumer in Task Manager. Thus, the PC is very slow. Teams should be LEAN to support a variety of devices. Does Teams have a memory leak?
Teams is killing my daughters laptop and stopping a lot of home learning. Please reduce the memory usage. Many home pcs have limited memory and to be using nearly 2Gb is absurd
Teams is taking the most memory usage on my desktop. I am using architectural programs that require high amounts of memory and graphics and teams is on par or more at times to these programs. Unacceptable.
CPU overutilization, RAM overutilization...is this an attempt by a foreign adversary to destroy us? If so, then it's working!
STOP ADDING *BS* FEATURES AND GET BEYONE TEXTING...FOR VIDEO TO WORK.
Teams is using over 1GB on my 16 GB laptop, unacceptable.
If Microsoft deprecates Skype with Teams then I will be forced to cancel my Skype subscriptions.
I don't understand why, after 4 years, Teams doesn't offer a way for home users/small companies to delete history (I do understand that some corporations may have a policy to prevent deletion).
I followed instructions at https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_o365admin-mso_teams-mso_o365b/teams-hogging-memory-running-slowly/3a5ddd1a-e4b0-41be-881d-c0d46b9abe23?page=1 to manually delete files but there was little improvement.
This kills my computer.
please fix this... this is so disappointing.
Just switched from a 16GB machine to a 8GB Surface. I live in Teams for work all day but it is becoming unbearable. I spend too much time trying to fight the memory issue.
It took me a while to work out why my 3 month old PC with 8gb of RAM was starting to slowdown, until I looked in task manager and found Teams was hogging all the memory, I have to kill it to get any work done which makes it the opposite of useful for its intended purpose. Although with less notifications I do seem to be getting more work done...

Teams is using more memory than my Chrome! It starts at the 250 MB but can go up to a whole gig during the day!

Teams running in the Background is a nightmare - I have to go on to the task manager to Kill it. I have 12GB of Memory and even in the Background it is using a huge amount and slowing the computer. If you want to be a serious contender to Zoom you need to do something about this!

Creating huge problems with the kids trying to do schooling at home!!!!
glad to see I'm not alone.
I don't care how it renders. i mostly just need it to chat since this is apparently replacing Skype. can i get a Lite version?
I have 16GB of RAM and this shouldn't be tying all of that up.
Fix it please.
For the most sacred you have: STOP adding features before making it leaner! Teams has downgraded from a decent, cool program to a bloated non-descript thing
Teams use nearly 1Go of RAM. That's more than any other.

Fixt it please.
Terrible engineering to have such a memory intensive application. Fixt it please.
Microsoft Teams now is almost at par with Google Chrome in eating up machine resources T_T please fix.
