High CPU/GPU/Power usage
For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.
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.
Sort it out.
Activity monitor suggesting 700%+ cpu utilisation... (6 core i7 MBP 2019 on Big Sur). Quit Teams and everything returns to normal operation.
It's an appalling implementation of a product that obviously has legs. You must be embarrassed with this surely?
Teams with video in a group of only 7 or 8 people burns 5 highly-overclocked i9-7900X CPU-cores, even with GPU-accleration enabled-by-default and a GTX 3090 available to do the lifting.
I have no idea how it even works at all on a standard low-mid-end "corporate laptop".
This is mindblowingly bad optimization.

Cpu usage, especially on older hardware while using video, is extreme and makes the pc unusable.
This must be fixed asap as these performance issues have been reported since the early days and thus is dragging on far far too long.

FFS, Slow as Molasses.
Who made the decision to use electron as core architecture?
For the teammate whom I've been using the chat function with the longest - since early 2019 - it's takes quite a long time for chat to load with this person specifically. Chat will stall or hang for a good 5-10 seconds before it'll let me begin to type. I suspect it's because there is a large cache of memory connected to our longstanding thread. This is not at all a problem with teammates whom I "chat" with less often.
I vote this is a priority!

resource usage is AWFUL
My Core 5-6200U constantly hits 100% when I have meetings with multiple people. Tried turning settings like hardware acceleration on/off, other drivers but nothing seems to help. When I also share the screen and use Chrome to demonstrate something everything becomes painfully slow.
I find MS Teams CPU usage far higher than those quoted above. Mostly during video calls/screen sharing - but even the idling can be high.

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)
It is extremely high

Really poor performance!

I have a 2017 macbook pro and it just destroys the CPU when I have even a couple of meeting participants using video.
When video is on, it takes ~2 minutes before it even displays the screen/app list for sharing. Then everything slows to a crawl, making presenting ponderously slow. This is on a 16 GB/i5-8350U/NVMe laptop, Win10 20H2.
Zoom is much faster when trying to do the same.
Surface Laptop 3, battery lasts maybe 2 hours in Teams video conference. Zoom video consumes much less.

this is really bad! Especially during a time with many folks working at home.
