Version 1.2.00.13765 on macOS is using Discrete graphics continuously
"You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.2.00.13765. It was last updated on 6/3/19."
After this update, my MacBook Pro (15", 2017) is now continuously using the Radeon graphics system instead of falling back to Intel graphics to conserve power. This is obviously a massive hit to battery. Please investigate ASAP... I'll be happy to provide any logs needed if you can point me in the correct direction.
See attached PNG from gfxCardStatus (menubar applet) showing that Teams is the app to blame.

Correct, this seems to have regressed in the one of the later versions but I'm on 1.2.00.17856 which seems to have resolved some of the issue.
I see one of the Teams Helper processes that requires discrete graphics still.
I am also experiencing the same issue on a MBP 15" 2018 Mojave 10.14.5. Same Teams version.

This seems to have been brought up as a bug in the past, and was fixed... but I guess it regressed?
