High Memory/RAM Usage
Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my computer
Thank you for your continued feedback. We are continuously improving the clients to use less memory and RAM.
The upgrade to Electron 10 has rolled out fully to the public at this point. Telemetry and testing has shown that this is helping to improve memory performance on the client.
We will continue to work on improvements, and will share more updates as they become available.

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!

resource usage is AWFUL

Currently using ~1GB of memory. The only other process using more memory is Edge at ~1.4GB with 9 windows and ~30-40 tabs open.
Not using Teams active at this moment, 744MB in use 9 processes
After a reboot a few minutes ago Teams is using 564MB in 9 processes.

In my computer Teams are using 1,2GB in 9 processes.
Due to high memory usage system performs slow which is not at all acceptable
1GB for a chat app is unacceptable.
640K ought to be enough for anybody.

you've got to sort this - it kills an I5 8GB RAM with an SSD hard drive. Zoom is nowhere near as memory intensive on a video call.
with teams open it means i can hardly work at times as just takes so much ram, whilst doing literally nothing. If you have to work on a VPN as well then totally forgot about teams as it will just stop you dead in your tracks

Teams is an extremely resource intensive application, and I can't really see why, other than for inefficient coding of course.

MS Teams actually consuming x6 upper than Webex Teams, and x10 upper than Jabber on my thinkpad T490
MS Teams = 544.8Mb(11.6%CPU)
WebEx Teams = 84.1MB(1.6%CPU)
Cisco Jabber= 59.9MB(0.2%CPU)
and if i start a Visio meeting, MS Teams goes more than 1Go (21.6%CPU), Jabber only 117MB (1.6%CPU)and WebEx Teams 161,7 MB (4.2%CPU)
Teams are using up to 1.1 GB of Memory by just switching between apps inside Teams

System are lagging some times when using Teams presenting another system like Power BI, Sharepoint and it really lags bad. When using without Teams, perfect.First I thought this was related to VPN, by have traced the trafic.
