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.
Given that Skype for Business and logon script are competing for CPU, Teams is another that adds to the burden...It's not clear to me when Teams searches for updates (at launch or during use)?

Over a year after and it is now clear that this will never be fixed.. What a bummer, could have been a great product..
It's taking around 10 seconds just to start ... then it's slow everywhere.
I agree, the slow performance of this app on a brand new, top-of-the-line computer is unacceptable. This app needs to focus on doing its primary job well before getting into a bunch of useless-to-most-of-us add-ons. This app should start like lightning and clicking around in it should be blazing fast, I should not have issues starting the app three minutes ahead of a meeting and having to stress about how long it takes to initialize and get into the meeting.
Make it work without VPN

MacOS desktop app actually worked fine for me up until recently. Well, comparable to other versions (web/win) at least.
Now, for the last week or two, it is completely unusable. It works for a minute or so after a "cold" start or sign in, then goes into almost infinite "We ran into a problem. Reconnecting...".
It can clearly sometimes connect for a very brief moment, since some notifications/messages arrive, but it's like one second every minute (not actual measured values).

I agree. The video feed lag is very apparent in the 30 seconds to 1 minute. This makes it impossible for Webinars and else.
Although I only use this mandatory app for work, I have to say it is VERY slow. I do not get notifications right away as you would on a cell phone.

Though wiki on a group is a good ideia, editing there feels slow and becomes anoying. After that i noticed the hole package feels slow, thats why teams for me is odd.
When are Microsoft actually going to make a product that's better than before?
This is terrible.
Staff refuse to use it because it is clunky and slow. They use the competitor whatsapp instead because it frees them to actually be more productive.
Notifications are slow.
Switching channels is slow.
Adding attachments is slow.
Live chatting is slow.
Launching the app is slow.
Finding staff to add to a team is slow.
Hmmmm.... There's a theme here.
Just like the 100s of pages of User Voice search results for the word 'slow'.
... And you're going to kill Skype4B and drag them to this slow rubbish...?
Hey Microsoft devs, try using Whatsapp on your Websites client and see how fast it is!
That's what teams need to be like.
Our staff interact on collaborative documents over whatsapp because teams is sooooooo slow.
Adding an attachment is even worse.
Beyond slow. May be switching my recommendation on Teams today.

I have noticed that trying to scroll back and find earlier messages is very slow. The scrolling happens quickly but it takes several seconds for the messages to be retrieved and shown on the screen. In fact, I have a chat session on my screen right now that has not updated at all when I scrolled back to see earlier messages.
This is a real problem on fast moving chat windows. Trying to see what people said earlier in the conversation is very difficult and takes more time than it should. I don't know if this is a problem with the client or the server API not being performant.

It's slow everywhere. In fact it seems MS has designed "slow" into every product released in the last few years. It's just an awful experience all around.

More testing and stability please

Any plans for a Desktop (I mean, really desktop, not a web app) version of Teams? I think that would make Teams much faster, like the OneNote desktop!! Swapping tabs back/forth with the current desktop version is really unproductive.
The native Mac client is very slow compared to either Slack or Hipchat when switching between channels or replying to a conversation.
Please improve the performance of the application.

It's too slow even to switch from one private conversation to another its cloggy if you chat alot with the same user it can even reach high lags, we are forced to clear the cache in our user files for it to become fast again.
Maybe add a clear cache button until its fixed?
