Poor performance on Windows
The system takes a lot of the computer resources and slows down the overall performance of the pc
Thank you for your feedback. Our performance team is working on improving the overall performance of the Windows client. We expect to see performance jumps in the latest version of Electron rolling out (Electron 10).
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?
Running in edge/chrome has disadvantages but improves on this item. Electron problems?
I must use MS Teams for daily working as it's main tool using in my company.
Truly say, MS Teams is great as it has all features we need (chat, call, attach files, image,..).
But, it seem it was base on a bad platform or a bad algorithm, it cause my laptop to freeze all the time, even I close all other applications.
After narrow down all cases, I am sure MS Teams is the only cause of laptop bad performance.
I only can back to work right after close Teams, and some times, I must hard shutdown laptop to make it work.
Hey Microsoft, let listen to us, MS Teams idea is good, but it has bad experience, the big company like MS can do it good, let action.

Why do you not using Microsoft native framework and ability to make great app for Microsoft teams instead of using electron and have many bad experience on Microsoft built-in OS platform (Windows)

Ever since the latest update, Microsoft Teams is single-handedly slowing my ENTIRE computer down to a halt. This is a Windows 10 Pro, fully updated to latest MS updates, with i7 3.5GHz CPU and 16GB RAM, with a PCIe based SSD. This is EXTREMELY unacceptable, and I have to constantly reboot my PC to get a few hours of decent performance until MS Teams boggs it down again.
I know it is caused my MS Teams, since I have tested regular use of PC, then when I get slow-down, I simply quit all MS Teams processes, and my PC is back to normal. I have also tested closing every single app that I have open, and only leaving MS Teams running and my PC continues to run slow.
This sucks as I LOVE MS Teams and use it all day to communicate with my IT Team that I manage! Please do something!!

It is better working when used from chrome or Edge

I suggest for all of you using ms teams to not installing it, instead open teams using edge or chrome and set teams as app

Congratulations on resetting issue 17219609 that was open for 4 years and was one of the highest voted issues. With no work to resolve the issue the votes have now reset. This strategic fudging of the figures a marvellous strategy.
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-windows-x64/1.4.00.12510/Teams_windows_x64.exe
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.
slow to search previous messages in the chat and high cpu usage while searching for the past maessages.

@Alex when is that electron 10 version starting to rollout?
Can you give us a bit more detail? Which version of Teams do you think will benefit from the planned performance increases?
I'm experiences multi-second delays (2-6 seconds) just to switch from tabs on the Nav bar (e.g. switch from Chat to Calendar, etc). This is very surprising that a MS app on Windows 10 has such a poor UI experience.

Problem started today - MS Teams occupying lot of memory & slowing down whole PC.

I am experiencing since End of Feb very bad performance. On my top spec Surface 3 (I7 CPU) I have on everage 60% CPU and 50-60% GPU usage in video calls.

I have to use many similar applications and now I have a meeting on Tuesday via Microsoft Teams. Decided to check this out and was very surprised - the loading of sharable applications pops up within 15-20 seconds. I have no idea when it actually responds to a click afterwards. In the meeting with me as only participant.
Hesus Mio, this is funny and sad at the same time.
Overall works slow as well.
I have no experience in creating such apps - will you hire me?
Always keep a phone to hand to show just how slow the UI is changing from chat to calendar for example. Take away the developer's high end PCs and let them suffer it on a 5 year old Celeron so that they get the full educational experience on a daily basis.
electron has been your problem since day 1. You’re hoping for a miracle coming from a 3rd party but it could as well go the other way around.
