Teams Meeting Causes My New MacBook Pro to Overheat
Only when I use Teams Meeting (not Live Event), my Macbook Pro runs very hot and forces the internal fans to run at maximum. This happens whether I'm connected with 1 other person or many. The only way to fix this is to minimize the window and I get a thumbnail size image of just the active speaker. Then, the Macbook stays cools and the fans run minimally. This just started happening with the latest major update of Teams. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but the problem persists. My Macbook is dual boot, so I'm able to check this inside of Windows 10 and there are no issues within that operating system. This is a problem with Teams Meeting operating inside of the Apple OS.
My Macbook Pro specs:
MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)
MacOS Catalina Ver. 10.15.6
2.4 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9
64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 8 GB
Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB
Yep - this is killing my M1 MacBook Air! Performance isn't badly affected but it gets super hot! I love Teams but honestly, I'm going to need to use a different solution if this doesn't get fixed quickly... And just to be clear, it's not Teams in general it's Teams being used for video-calls that's the problem...

Microsoft teams overheated my system and damaged my Macbook pro 13" 2017 display....
Same problem on a Pro 16' with i9 and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M 4 GB. Really bad.
I have the same overheating problem on my M1 MBA during my Teams meeting.
I have the same problem. (mbp 16). Additionally when I (and my friends on MacBooks) am changing (switching) my desks, the screen is shaking (artefacts) in the up right corner.
During live event Macbook Pro M1 13 slows down and video and audio choppy -- switch to iPad now that we can use live events as a speaker no issues

Me too. Anyone found a solution?
I'm having the same problems. My computer gets hot when I take classes all the time. I use Macbook pro 13. He hasn't recovered in two months. please help
Same here, but specially using Chrome instead of the full client. After several cashing clear sessions and then closing Chrome, fully shutting down and starting up again it is gone even in the client/app

I have the same issue. Have any of you managed to find a way to resolve this?
I have the same issue and it's so frustrating. I've taken it to Apple multiple times to confirm it's nothing with my hardware, I did a full system reset and slowly added back every application. Teams was the last I loaded and the problem started immediately thereafter. Today I had a 1 hr video call, and my fully charged (new MacBook) drained to 9% by the end. It's totally unacceptable.
I also have the same problem. I’m using a 2017 MacBook Pro 13 base model.
I'm noticing this too it's only on teams, zoom doesn't have this problem.
I'm also seeing this with a brand new macbook pro.
