Android app flickers whe i open it
If i dont use the android app for a couple of days and then open it, it flickers uncontrollably. I think it is syncing up with my account activity since it stops after a couple of mins
It happens for me on my 5 sometimes right after I was using it successfully. Usually when I walked away from my computer and need to answer someone right away.
same issue on Nokia with android version 10 (android one)

Same issue here - Samsung Galaxy S20+. Makes the Teams app totally unusable.
Same here, pixel 3a, since the last system update.

Very frustrating ... uncontrollable flickering of Teams mobile app. Android 11 Pixel 3 XL
Same issue here, very disappointing as the Teams app was pretty good but now unusable. Constant flicker as it appears to be synchronizing with something constantly. Please fix soon
Same here, Samsung Note 10+ 5G
Teams has always been terrible for me though, it doesn't give notifications correctly, I have to reload conversations so I can see the latest message, constantly loses auth even though every other office app keeps it, etc. I found purging all the data from it and force stopping the app helped but only for a limited time.
How can apps from a company as big as Microsoft consistently be this poor?
I've got it in dark mode so it flashes up a white screen with the "please wait" spinning logo on it for half a second then disappears, repeat. The app is unusable until you kill it or turn off the network, you can't even swap to other apps correctly as it keeps trying to steal priority.

This needs more attention, it's frustrating trying to get through the day having to flip airplane mode everytime I want to open teams. Appears to be an authentication issue, even though every other 365 app on my Pixel 5 has no drama. Please address this.
Yup this happens to me too! However I don't use airplane mode. Here is the method I use:
Swipe down notification center and disconnect Wi-Fi
Open Teams and it works like it should
Turn on Wi-Fi again.

I think the issue has to do with the combination of the MS Auth app and Teams. Removing and re-adding my work account from the auth app appears to have fixed the issue.

Same problem here. Screen refreshes over and over rendering the app useless. Toggling airplane mode somewhat is a bandaid to the issue and reduces the refreshing enough to possibly tap a control.
Pixel 4a 5G

Any fix other than airplane mode? Pixel 5 also have this issue.
same, Pixel 4XL, looks to be a common pixel thread here...

Ditto. Started last week. Tried uninstall/install, still an issue. I have a Pixel 4a
Me too got this problem..
for me it had started last update
I did try to uninstall/resintall
Same here. We use the Microsoft authenticator for MFA. Pixel 3XL here.
What worked for me is to put my phone in airplane mode,then go into teams, the app doesn't flicker anymore but you are in offline mode. Then sign out.
Stop airplane mode and it triggered the MFA authentication.
Hope it gets a fix soon!
Go into teams (
Same here. App last updated -> April 7, 2021, Version -> 1416/126.96.36.1991040701
