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.

Drains battery very heavily. Requires a lot of RAM usage.
Please reduce memory usage of the system. It reduces performance of the entire system by larger extent
High memory usage of teams needs resolving.
Please vote on this one so we can more votes on one issue, rather than spread across multiple issues that a re related: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/908686-bug-reports/suggestions/40432090-teams-desktop-high-cpu-and-memory

Yes. I also experienced the same thing. especially when today teams can display 3x3 participant videos.
My laptop specifications:
CPU: i7 Kaby Lake 2.7GHz
Disk: 500GB SSD
Win 10 Pro x64 build 1909. Fully patched. Teams devouring 451,6MB @ idle.
Absolutely not acceptable. Have uninstalled.
Fix or I will be forced to use a competitor.

Even when idle, Teams devours 300MB of memory on my Win10 up-to-date machine.
Never was so much memory owed to so many by so few....
Teams uses more memory than Visual Studio 2017 with a solution containing more than 25 projects. It does not happen on startup, but after using it for a bit. Surely this is excessive. Please look for the memory leaks and fix those. Otherwise, the application is not really usable.
On behalf of the CTO of the company for which I work: Please reduce memory utilization of Teams App or implement a memory utilization throttle that is available to the end -user and to administrators.
Reduce Memory Usage
Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my Windows 10 Enterprise Laptop. I would expect there is room for improvement.

Windows 10 fully patched, 10.7GB used by Teams!

I have uninstalled teams from my surface pro 4. It consistently drains up all the memory and CPU usage spikes to 100% If i hear the fan sounds on the surface pro.. and the machine heating up,I have no doubt teams is causing it. I merely use teams from my mobile phone.
win10 ...500 MB...
Hello, i got lastest win10 with latest patchs. Teams (corporate usage) is using a lot of memory in my PC. Please find screenshot of TEAMS memory usage, just after PC reboot. Thanks for your efforts. Emmanuel
same problem (small business admin, 10 stations with teams, all WIN10)
Windows 10... 894.9MB in use by Teams. Ridiculous. Fix the leaks.

Same problem here. Microsoft has to learn how to develop good software yet...
I shut down Teams completely from the Taskbar so that my laptop is able to perform its normal tasks. I see significant improvement in Laptop performance once I shut Teams. I restart Teams only to check conversations now and then.
Competing apps like Slack, Flock are not hogging memory that much. Microsoft needs to look into this issue soon.
Everyone in my company is having issues with memory on their computer since we have been moved to teams - both on Windows 10 and on Mac OS

Same for Windows 10
