Poor performance on Windows
The system takes a lot of the computer resources and slows down the overall performance of the pc
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.
It seems that it's getting worst actually.
I'm now reaching 15% CPU (8 processes), and 1Gb memory when teams starts !!
I'd also suggest to stop adding cosmetic and consuming features before this crucial issue is addressed seriously, as already mentioned several times.
This is definitely our experience and we regret very much closing a thread which had a considerable bow wave of relevant comments to this
Agree with Gordon - it's general UI responsiveness, not so much hogging resources and slowing down the pc. The whole app is incredibly sluggish, click, wait, click, wait, click, wait...
Gordon Tyler commented
General UI responsiveness is my main irritation.
- Clicking the Reply button below a conversation takes far too long before I can actually type.
- Clicking between Teams and Chat on the sidebar takes far too long before it actually displays the new view.
- When in a meeting, the main Teams window becomes even more unresponsive than before.
Stop adding features. Focus on the core user experience. Make it snappy!!!
Rafael Schiavoni commented
Maybe this is by design. On a teams meeting, you pc should be dedicated to that meeting window, or are you multitasking???
Thomas Kristensen commented
Teams consumes 10-15 times more ressources than Zoom - making it practically impossible to work in other apps (even in the Office suite)
Ryan Spooner commented
The app is overly slow on Windows, which is probably due to the huge amounts of resources it consumes. During a Teams meeting with screen sharing and several participants, RAM usage can balloon to nearly 1.5GB of memory usage, and you often see the whole CPU pegged at 100%, though task manager does seem to only show Teams using around 30% at that time. Still, 30% constantly is huge and is excessive when compared to similar services from other vendors.

MS Teams actually consuming x6 upper than Webex Teams, and x10 upper than Jabber on my thinkpad T490
MS Teams = 544.8Mb(11.6%CPU)
WebEx Teams = 84.1MB(1.6%CPU)
Cisco Jabber= 59.9MB(0.2%CPU)
and if i start a Visio meeting, MS Teams goes more than 1Go (21.6%CPU), Jabber only 117MB (1.6%CPU)and WebEx Teams 161,7 MB (4.2%CPU)
Also when not on a conference it is slow without doing anything. It just crawls.
When video is on, it takes ~2 minutes before it even displays the screen/app list for sharing. Then everything slows to a crawl, making presenting ponderously slow. This is on a 16 GB/i5-8350U/NVMe laptop, Win10 20H2.
Zoom is much faster when trying to do the same.
