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.

Teams processes sometimes uses over 600 MB of memory.

This string started over 18 months ago... is this UserVoice just to vent or is someone from MS actually paying attention????
Teams made my Windows 7 laptop unusable. I am new to Teams, and found it would arbitrarily take over my laptop. The last straw came when I was in the middle of a presentation, not using Teams, and my laptop froze due to Teams. Inexcusable! I uninstalled Teams, and am using the web-based version to take meetings. This is not a good solution because I am supposed to use it, but it is just too frustrating.
Teams does not work as it overloads physical memory and reduced usage.
Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my Windows 10 Professional Laptop with O365 Biz Premium. We would expect the improvement.
Or Workaround to fix
It seemed no way to tune the MS Teams on using the memory.
Just came back to my desk after late dinner. Teams was consuming more than 7GB
MS Teams is consuming way to much memory. Just after suggestion with cleaning cache for MS teams my memory consumption looks like below. MS Team is only running in a background, no chat open, no meeting running. It's unacceptable.
Windows 7 with all updates. Desktop Teams 1.2.00.21068 (64-bit) - the latest available for me at this moment. High CPU and memory usage (see attached image). Teams window is not active, no chats and other activity. It happens sometimes, I can't find any pattern. The only way is to kill processes. Closing the app just closes that process with high memory usage.
Installed Memory - 8 GB, Processor - Intel Core i5-2320

This is a huge problem for us. We are attempted to adopt MS Teams across the board and some of our field users have older laptops with soldered memory.
Microsoft Teams memory usage is too high. Even when not in use, the memory consumption is high. we will have to look elsewhere if this cannot be resolved..

In my case it uses more than 400Mb even when I'm not doing anything (just have few amount of teams).

Teams too much of a resource pig to be useful right now.
I'm using windows 10 is someone at Microsoft even looking at these posts and working with people ?
I see teams starting with 5 process for a total of 533mb of memory just for a chat session. even 500mb of memory is reasonable - look at google chrome or edge on many systems taking the same even with 1 page open. but 1gb or more is unreasonable. That's an obvious memory leak that jetbrains dotmemory would isolate in a few minutes. im using teams 1.2.21068 may be other users should at least get the latest version installed.

Same, Teams used 22.7 gigs of ram while not even being open...

Please allow for options to reduce memory usage.

I run hyper-v linux client and docker containers on a 16gb laptop computer. (Am I going to need 32gb in this pc?) By the time I run productivity software, and teams, I'm hard pressed to keep the ram usage below my ram limit, not to mention utilizing disk space usage. My company uses teams for communication, but its resource use is making my pc run slower.
This is a problem for me as well. Causing other applications, like Excel and Outlook, not to function properly.
fix this memory issue PLEASE!
Teams starts with about 500MB memory usage. By clicking callings (my app is in german), the mem-usage rises to 700MB. However it rises up to 2.3GB of RAM. My Surface with 8GB of RAM is at its limit if I start some further Applications.
CATASTROPHY, what about testing SW before it's been released !!!
