Fix unnecessary activation of discrete GPU on MacBook Pro again. Seems to be regression on version 1.2.00.13765

Just got a brand new 2019 MBP and wondering why my battery was constantly draining so fast compared to my 2015 MBP....Turned off discrete graphics in chrome only to find Teams to be using it by design....this needs to be fixed soon!
Please look at this. It's draining my battery all the time; only lasts half as long with Teams running.
Teams is meant to be on all the time especially because of chat feature.
But I constantly have to turn it off because I feel like it is hoggin my battery.
Is it absolutely necessary to use discrete GPU?
Doesn't it work fine on devices without discrete GPU?
This was fixed in 2017 and the problem is back.
I am sick of running electron apps, and pretty much avoid any app that is electron based. Teams is a necessity because its essential for work. For its high CPU usage and being a resource hog, I avoid using it as much as I can.
This issue pretty much makes it unusable and I have to quit the app once I am done with it, so it doesn't drive my battery down.
I hope you release a Catalyst app.
You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.2.00.13765. It was last updated on 2019/06/21.
Same thing, discrete GPU is activated as soon as I start Teams.
