Poor performance on MacOS
I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.
I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.
I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2
Thank you for your feedback. We are continually looking to bring performance boosts to the Mac Client, including improvements with Electron 10 that are releasing. We are also aggressively addressing other areas of performance around the Mac client
Marginal difference on performance and subsequent heat and fan issues with those electron 10 builds. been using them for a couple of days. Nothing overly exciting just continuation of the same problems. Thanks for the link but i think its clear this is not going away until the entire application is re-architected.
Same for me. Takes a long time to show all 7 participants' videos; also stops other apps from running properly (no reponse to clicks) so screen sharing is not useful. Using MacBook Pro/Catalina.Bring on the performance update!
There currently isn't a M1 version because we're on Electron 10.4.5 (at least that is what the internal builds are currently on), and M1 support was added to Electron 11 and 12, so we've to wait for Microsoft to update to a newer Electron version first before a M1 version can appear.
It also looks like Electron 10.4.3 builds will be rolling out to Insiders in a couple of weeks, so we're not too far away, either mid-May or somewhere in April.
You can try out newer builds (which are on Electron 10) on a website someone had created at https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ItzLevvie/MicrosoftTeams-msinternal/master/defconfig
Any news on this front? I can't believe there still no M1 version, even a Beta one.
I think there is a queue to getting a working version of Teams on Mac. This appears to be....
1. Intel Macs - queue time 4years +
2. M1 based Macs - queue time starting 6 months
I think the M1 has approximately another 2 years to go before it hits the position where it will be reported as being addressed and then another 2 years before being fixed. That is aligning with the current timeline of experience for mac support.
Any news alex?
I’m sorry but nowadays with Covid-19 we are dependent on apps like teams. And trust me if it were our choice we would’ve rather use cups and some strings other than 3d photoshop blinder 8k movie you call teams!
If Microsoft soft doesn’t fix this while we are in need of it there’s no point fixing it after we don’t or if we are able to switch to other services. BTW I hope you’re fixes includes also pc and ios (i use mac pc and ios teams) and mostly all of them are unusable.
We absolutely need at least Electron 11 for Apple Silicon support, which will make a tremendous difference to performance for many of us.
@Alex How about Electron 11? Per Electron:
"Although we believe that x64 Electron apps will run under Rosetta 2, there are some important things to note (and reasons why you should ship a native arm64 binary).
You lose the benefit of new technology in Apple Silicon, such as the increased memory page size.
Did we mention that the performance will be significantly degraded?"
Version 1.4.00.7175 now randomly crashes on my MAC....never had that feature before just the ongoing last 4yrs of poor performance and high CPU use. I check with others using a mac and they are all suffering random crashes now as well. So nothing i can do to fix it. Now other than alot of fan noise, overheating killing my battery, i need to continually check if teams has died silently when in the middle of meetings. Seems the performance is just getting better and better each day. Can we go back to Skype? It worked.
I've been struggling to debug this to the point it is usable on a mac m1 and it hasnt been easy.
Teams is almost unusable with a bluetooth headset. If I'm on a video call and trying to use bluetooth performance stutters constantly. When I switch to a usb wired mic, no stuttering. I suspect the processor use is so high that it just cant keep up.
If I do get a bluetooth headset to work for a call, then try to make a call a few minutes later, the mic isnt working again.
Also, when I'm on a call and working with two monitors and have multiple windows open, I can never find a button to hang up the call at the end....The only way I've found is to quit the program.
very poor app. please fix this. I'm being forced by my IT dept to use Teams instead of zoom, and it's really awful.
Please, please, please!
Teams Web app on Microsoft Edge on Mac M1 is getting stuck while in a call as I am not able to see the screen for a while. If the other person is sharing a ppt then I am only able to see some of the slides as it gets stuck and then resumes after a while. Please check and if possible bring the arm version of the app soon. Even the insider build will do fine.
Thanks for the newest build link below ! And it still a nightmare with Electron 10 if that's the case ! :(
It seems like you can already download the latest exploration build which is currently on Electron 10.4.5 by downloading it from https://statics.teams.cdn.office.net/production-osx/1.4.00.12805/Teams_osx.pkg
I actually managed to grab this particular build from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ItzLevvie/MicrosoftTeams-msinternal/master/defconfig and the builds list is seemingly updated every day or so.
I can not attend my online class at a time because when I join my classes it's simply goes blank ..and I unable to see my screen...then I have switched off my phone and wait for screen to on......check this out....worst app....
It freaking terrible on big sur. cant even log in. please fix it, i need to go to school. please. i have no other way, and quite frankly web client sucks.

Arıca Microsoft Teams uygulamasında İphone telefonları için de BAS KONUŞ özelliğinin getirilmesini istiyorum. Teşekkür ederim.

Please... get off of Electron. The only people who like Electron are web developers. When a company like Microsoft goes the route of Electron, it is a user hostile decision. I don't know ANY end users that enjoy using Electron based apps. Seriously...

Teams crashes my Mac OS at least 3 times a day due to the mass amounts of Memory it uses.
I have a fresh install and it's just not stable. How can Zoom be so stable but Teams be just horrible on my Mac? I mean what are ya'll doing which takes up so much memory? I've shared my system info incase this helps in any way possible. I wanted to add, the crashes happen when the video is not always on, it just leaks so much memory and then takes a dump! Does anyone have any Flex Seal laying around so I can patch this leaky hole?
