Hey folks, is this still not working for you? We pushed an update that may have fixed it. Please log in/out, then select one of the start up config options, then see if it works for you when you launch again. If it does NOT, then please email me your user logs. You can find them here:
My email address is sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com. I’m sorry this is causing such a hassle for you all! We’ll get it fixed, I promise.

Does not seem to actually do what you think it would do.. Every time I log in TEAMs slowly logs in and is in my face blocking my whole desktop.
Send me a tweet at @skprufo if you have any questions on this. I’ll let you know when it goes live.
Hi everyone, I sent over your feedback to the performance team and they let me know they are actively working on this.
“Our development organization is continually working to improve product performance and has several efforts currently underway around memory usage, action responsiveness and application start time. Updates which improve performance are part of our regular update process. Thank you for your feedback regarding the performance of Microsoft Teams.”
I will check in on them in a few weeks to see if we can get exact numbers/details on what’s been improved, and I’ll let you know.
Meanwhile, have a great weekend and don’t forget to set your clocks forward by an hour for Daylight Savings!
Hi everyone — good news and bad news. Good news is that I have an update from Engineering. Bad news is that they just let me know this has hit some road blocks and we won’t be hitting July’s target date. This is now expected to be delivered in September.
I am sorry for the delay and will update you as this gets nearer to completion! Feel free to ping me if you want to be a beta tester for this feature!
Thanks and hope everyone is enjoying their summer,

Why do I need to install another app, I already have Skype for business installed? Or Why do I need Skype anymore?
Quick update that we have made incremental changes and you should start to see those white margins becoming much thinner and chat getting more dense in the coming weeks. It will not be the fully dense mode, but it will be moderate changes so not to jar our full user base. These changes are being implemented across the board, so this is NOT a compact chat mode that is an optional setting, but permanent changes to the UI to increase density.
I’m keeping this item on the “working on it” status because we are going to continue making the product more dense overall. We’ll continue to update you as we make progress.
Big and special thanks to the hundreds of you who participated in the user research. It gave us really great information to make these permanent changes. THANK YOU!
