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.

Have performance issues as well, mainly when in a video call. If you try to open chat in video call, it takes a long time to open and moving/resizing the teams window is pretty unresponsive. I don't think it is my hardware either, I have new dell xps i7.
It is is just too slow :/
Lazy loading for chat history is implemented quite bad and without any local cache. It's quite challanging to search among older conversations.

When i load Teams, it takes a long time to load the app. Once the app has loaded switching between the wiki, chat, and other tabs is very slow. I think it would be great if the Teams team spent some time and resources just improving the overall experience for its users. Teams is an important part of the O365, so I think before you add any more features then take a few updates and clean up some of the mess. Let's make it more stable and speedy.
@MF is right. Switching between the 'Chat' to 'Teams' tabs is pitifully slow even on 13 month old hardware it's actually mad that this software isn't more optimized running on the flagship OS made by the same manufacturer of the software AKA MS.
They should hire people from VS Code team. Both VS Code and Teams are electron based apps but VS Code is so much more optimized...

The performance of Teams on video calls is really bad. It slows up, becomes unresponsive and I've had 2 blue screen of deaths (one from 5 minutes ago attached).
Myself and 3 others have been using Teams for the last few months and all of us are experiencing similar issues on video calls. It seems to be worst on 1 on 1 video calls versus group calls.
Once a video call is started, trying to use the buttons in Teams to share your screen or change your device settings are also very slow to respond. The problems may be worst when sharing your screen with video, but it's sluggish even with just video and no screen sharing.
You're web app is way more responsive. The bar at the top saying to download the desktop app for an even faster experience is a complete crock at this point.
Once the web app has the call functionality (hopefully with screen sharing) I see no reason to even download the app.
I see the same behaviour. It is really bad!
Also, even if I do manage to get the app to actually set the availability status to what I want, it doesn't sync to other devices (e.g. setting on desktop is not reflected on mobile and vice versa), so it is impossible to know whether the backend system has actually picked up on the change or not...

As a test of the difference between <PgUp>, scrolling up, and holding <Ctrl> + <Home> I noticed that the farther back you go the longer the load time is as it loads from the bottom up if you're simply going off of the current thread. I managed to go far enough back that it took nearly a minute to load the section I was looking at which was pretty egregious.
It's mid April so I figured I'd ask for another update since we haven't seen one in a while.

On Windows 10, the Teams Client is slow and actually slows down the overall performance of my entire system. This is on a Surface Pro 3 iCore 7. The Slack client runs about twice as fast and does not affect the overall performance on my system
Teams is amazing, but it feels like the Teams Client needs to be 'fatter'. Changing between chat, activity, Teams seems to have some transitional jutter.
Preload the interfaces perhaps?

The teams app has become extremely slow lately. Everything takes time - starting a new chat, navigating to a channel, opening a tab etc.

Known issue, another duplicate for you admin :)
Your desktop version is too slow and consume a lot memory and drag my system
My team mates and I try to change our status regularly manually. It does not work 90% of the time.
When we select a status and try to make the change, the status stays the same.

Yeah, this performance is awful. Look at Slack or Discord or similar chat programs for an example of how this *should* work.
Takes like 3 seconds to switch from Chat to Activities, feels like molasses
Any update on this?
