    Thank you for your continued feedback. We are continuously improving the clients to use less memory and RAM.

    The upgrade to Electron 10 has rolled out fully to the public at this point. Telemetry and testing has shown that this is helping to improve memory performance on the client.

    We will continue to work on improvements, and will share more updates as they become available.

    For more details on how Teams currently uses memory, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-memory-usage-perf.

    "The upgrade to Electron 10 has rolled out fully to the public at this point."

    It has been announced, not released. Also using half the memory of teams today it will still be using 2-4x the amount of memory of competing collaboration tools when idle.

    If teams consumes more memory on systems with more memory, that explains a lot..

    Still going to ask the question. WHY is an idle app in the background actively consuming more memory than MOST of the productivity apps in the foreground?

    If teams in in the foreground, in a call, opening a document sure, the memory use makes sense.

    But WHY is the idle use so high?

    In a Terminal Services / WVD type setup where you have several users on the same box. Even with the WVD optimized version (some features stripped) of teams the relative memory use on the host vs other apps is horrible!

    If I am lucky teams consumes 300-500MB of ram per WVD user (when idle) on the host, that is brutal if I am trying to maximize user density.. Goes well over a 1GB per user during a call.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are continually looking to bring performance boosts to the Mac Client, including improvements with Electron 10 that are releasing. We are also aggressively addressing other areas of performance around the Mac client

    It runs bad enough on our windows systems but it is even worse on a mac for some reason.. Especially during video calls.. Frequent hangs and drop outs on calls is common for our mac users.

    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.

    Application load time is something we are continuously working to improve, and the team is hard at work on fixes. We have validated a recent regression in application launch time that will be fixed in the coming weeks.

    Wait, this still isn't implemented in Teams? Guess I will NOT be migrating to PSTN access then.. I would never be able to get anything done with the number of marketing calls my number gets an hour.

    I still don't understand why we can't get a compact mode the size of the skype for business with the same UI as the iOS / Android client. The UI literally already exists for a compact mode. Make it an option then iterate on it some more.

    I will say however that P2P chat expectially on desktop is bulky and cumbersome.. While replying inline to notifications is fine, composing and sending with ether a full compos or typing inline in the little box at the top of the screen is not handy, the UI in general needs to be streamlined.

    One of the biggest complaints I have from users forced off of skype for business is that 1:1 chat is a giant leap backwards in usability.

    Also to echo others this has been open FAR TOO LONG!

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.

    Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

    I should add that even if my Org fully adopts teams I expect our contractors and partners to continue to use S4B for a long time (especially those with skype phone systems on prem), so interoperability is essential...

    Tried in teamsonly mode and islands mode. Does not work.

    A user in teamsonly mode can receive from Skype. Sending to a user in islands mode still sends the message to teams.

    There appears to be no way to message a federated partner using Skype for business.

    Teams will not let me @message an address outside my org.

    This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.

    This is a major hindrance to staff working on systems outside of IT control such as Guests invited into meetings or contractors working on a remote site joining a meeting and needing to SHARE content which is not possible via the web client.

    There isn't a point in having a user mode installer if an Admin ACTION is still prompted after install!!!

    This is Skype for business all over again!

    Please look at the near frictionless experience of Webex / Zoom for group meetings of users without install privileges.

    People joining conferences switch to other other products largely due to setup issues. If you have one participant struggling to connect the whole meeting gets derailed.
