    Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.

    It's been four years for this request with no work done.

    Why am I paying for monthly per user teams subscription for the hundreds of users at my company?
    Why am I paying for support?

    Seems that a #MSTeamsMemoryHog campaign is needed.

    3.5 years later and a compact mode for Teams is still under review.

    Pretty much see a Microsoft response every 3 months just to keep this issue from escalating on someone's watch queue.

    Simple solution just like other HTML products, provide a CSS style sheet with compact mode and a switch in the settings to use that CSS style sheet.

    Microsoft's response to date is,

    evaluating it,
    working on it,
    it may work maybe with a settings switch,
    no, lets back off
    ...

    A guess is that there will either be a reskinned user interface or a full replacement product called "Teams 2" whereby Microsoft jettisons all of the legacy code bugs, legacy requests and

    starts this pointless bug report, feature request cycle all over again.

    Strategy:

    - Release product
    - Provide some fixes
    - If it does not make large money, do critical fixes sometimes to drive away users
    - If it makes large money, add tiny micro-features around the edges
    - Respond to bug reports and feature requests with ' good idea, lets look at it, in the backlog' and other deferral lines
    - Work on a replacement product which is incompatible with existing product
    - Release replacement product, stop spending anything on forward development of existing product
    - Wait 1 year, state that the new product is winning market share and the old product is being retired at some point in the future

    - Only work on the new product

    The new product will be treated the same.

    - repeat this cycle every 6 years -

    Cheaper than having legacy systems with 10 year lifespans

    In addition to being available on Windows, Mac, and iOS, we have just released gallery view on Android 2×4 (mobile) and 3×3 (tablet). Large Gallery and Together Mode will be coming soon on Android.

    You will see these options with the latest version from the app store.

    You can read more about Large gallery view, Together mode, as well as other new meetings experiences here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-blog/new-meeting-and-calling-experience-in-microsoft-teams/ba-p/1537581.

    Need setting to turn off incoming video except for selected meeting participants.

    I share internet with 4 other persons for work/school.

    The inbound video blocks up the connection for all of us since we 4 are on calls at the same time for different companies/schools.
