Poor performance on Windows
The system takes a lot of the computer resources and slows down the overall performance of the pc
We are happy to share that Electron 10 is rolling out to the public ring now, so you should notice improvements. We expect overall performance of Teams to improve even further with upcoming fixes around the calling and meeting features We will share another update as soon as we are able to.

Sharing screen on desktop version is very laggy to the extent it is not usable. However web version is giving instant sharing response. Hope the desktop version catches up as I like to have a background which is not available in web version.
Yes, I have to agree with many of the other comments, especially with regard to using electron. The Desktop version UI is horribly laggy. There is a lot of UI lag around chat and switching between channels.
I’m assuming this is related to being based on Electron. Maybe a .NET MAUI and/or WebASM application will eventually replace it, although that might be more problematic for Linux I guess.
Electron 10 has NOT reached end-of-life status.
Mine still runs terrible on i7 16GB RAM and NVMe drive. Adding my voice to the list of complaints after you closed the original 18k vote thread.
Well for me the performance has really increased. It's certainly not flawless, especially when viewing a shared screen from another meeting participant. Didn't try sharing myself yet.
Using a Surface Laptop 3 with Surface Dock 2 and two UWQHD monitors. Before the update it was rubbish every meeting. Using two normal HD screens and a SD1 there weren't issues. So this means the Teams app is buggy, but improved now. Next MS has to further optimize the app for screen sharing I guess.

electron 10 was released in august 2020, I guess there is a shed lot of regression testing Microsoft needs to do before they push a new release out so I would not expect electron 12 or 13 being used here straight away guys. I would hope to see a faster development pace with which version of electron they use eventually
Electron 10 ?
that's already end of life,11.4 is the lowest in support, seems a bit odd to be updating to something that is end of life and not 11.4 or 12 or 13.
or not using Electron at all.
Is this the version we need for Electron 10? Just got it by manually updating.
How to force update it to Electron 10? Please recommend the download link to test it. Does it support MacOS now?

Updating to Electron 10 is cool and all, but Teams shouldn't be built on Electron at all. Why not use .Net? You would be dogfooding your own crossplatform platform and it would be *far faster* and lower resource consumption than Electron every could be.
Microsoft Teams has now been updated to Electron 10 in the Public Preview Channel.
our Organization users feed back on a teams performance is very bad, its taking lot of memory consumption. users in our organization are frustrated with ms teams low performance,
requesting to Microsoft please look in to to sort out issue.
Microsoft, just push out a new app. You can rapidly develop and deploy an app to fix this. What are you doing !?!
If your fighting with Electron, don't use it.
Having a 'UserVoice', having release channels for Preview, releasing new features on a weekly basis.
It's all nonsense when the application doesn't work.
We are all waiting for you...

I think changing Teams platform to UWP or WFP is the player changer for performance, like https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18667423-go-native-for-desktop

Unfortunately, the performance didn't improve much, the experience is frustrating to that point that I'm forced to slow down my work due to the slowness of the application.
I have two surface devices:
Surface Book 2
Suface Laptop Go
Both get extremely slow when on video conferencing or desktop sharing. I have moved myself from doogfood to "normal" ring, but issues still persist. It takes a minute or so to click on to anything else on my PC when this occurs. Major productivity killer.
Hi guys. Nothing new but just to re-enforce the message, what use has to potentially be able to share the screen when it takes so much longer (with freezes in the middle) to navigate on the browser or simply scroll Word?
Functionality cannot impact usability as it becomes useless.
This is the kind of stuff that will kill Teams, to other competitors.
The memory usage is so high that Teams often freezes or crashes and slows down my entire computer so much that I can't work. At least I now know the problem and can turn it off when I need to work, but I shouldn't have to have a second device just to use your collaborative work tool! It works fine on my Surface tablet, but my desktop is unusable when Teams is open.

Any ETA on this rollout?
