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.
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.

Electron 10? 12 is stable as we speak. Is Teams that far behind?

Anything based on Chromium is a massive resource hog. Remember when we used to complain about bloated MS frameworks? We were so innocent then. We had no idea how bad Google would make it.

Electron v10... You do realize they just rolled out v12, right? I miss the days of stable in-house foundation developers.
My Teams desktop (not web) app the messaging pane keeps telling me I need to refresh. I also face a continual issue where a gray bar goes across the top of the app and says "There's been a problem, trying to reconnect" . Once I restart Teams it works for a second but then does it again. I've been facing this issue since October or November and been through multiple helpdesk tickets, but to no avail.
Slow, resource hungry, and waaaaayyy bloated. With next to no options on how you want to enable/disable unused features.
Ohh, MS has known this for >3 years, and gotten >20000 votes about it, but it's just a 'to do' item.
I am using a Surface Pro 7 and when I'm using Teams with the camera it is ridiculously slow. My network cuts out and I am unable to use any other part of my PC without incurring extreme slowness. This only seems to be an issue on the Surface as we have numerous HP machines both desktops and laptops without issue. Please help!

guess what?after installing teams,i have to manually stop it from popping out from my pc everyday!now my pc takes forever to even start up discord,play roblox,or whatever the heck im doing!teams just made my pc lag and broken within' a year!thank you,Microsoft!you ruined my pc with this stupid app!and i can't uninstall it bc i have online class on your garbage useless 'higher rank workers spy on lower rank workers like a security camera app'!i hope you will throw your useless and annoying app asap!
In the space of 12 months the Teams client has gone from a (failry) nimble, focussed app to a bloated, plodding monster. Just basic tasks like moving between Calendar and Chat can take 5-10 seconds. In the age where users expect instant gratification this is simply not good enough.
I teach driver's ed through the local college. We must present the state certified curriculum without deviation. It is presented using power point with many embedded videos. The videos do not play through, visual and audio delivery does not sync. I experience many computer freezes, and crashes.

Makes it impossible to have a meeting and use your PC. I work at a law firm and this is a major issue for many users who are having meetings with judges and/or mediators and presenting evidence.

Teams is killing the processor when sharing screen in video meeting no matter how many people in the meeting. Happens after a couple of minute of high CPU usage then starts to overheat.

Outlook and Teams compete for memory hogs. Slack meanwhile does not and is very lightweight.

The forum admins even closed a 18000+ vote topic on performance issues:
absolutely unacceptable, Electron apps are an absolute nightmare!
fun fact: Teams in chrome is 10x quicker than the native app and uses 10% of ram as well. you sort of would expect the opposite, wouldn't you ?
Teams with video in a group of only 7 or 8 people burns 5 highly-overclocked i9-7900X CPU-cores, even with GPU-accleration enabled-by-default and a GTX 3090 available to do the lifting.
I have no idea how it even works at all on a standard low-mid-end "corporate laptop".
This is mindblowingly bad optimization.
Make the problematic code available on github. Maybe people will solve the problem.
