We do have this feature!
In order to have the Teams application start in the background you will need to set these two items.
Under Settings, within Teams, you need to select both of these options:
1) Auto-start application
2) Open application in background
If those two are selected, upon restart of the OS when you first login in, the Team app should start in the background and only appear in hidden application bar and not on the main Taskbar.
Please NOTE: If you exit the Teams application, then click the Teams’ icon to launch the app, it will now load in the foreground. The background start up is only when you first log into the OS and the application automatically launches in the background.
Settings --> Application --> Open application in background
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.
Thanks for the feedback.
We are considering a number of ways to better integrate experiences across Teams, Outlook, and other apps. However, we don’t have any specifics to share on this request.
No big update. However, the ask about speech to text meeting notes needs to be a separate request and therefore I have created a new suggestion for it. You can go here and up vote it! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/33534778
As for recording of video meetings, this is still coming along nicely.
Recording of meetings is on the roadmap for the Q2 2018 calendar year.
I want to assure you that overall performance, speed, cpu, memory, etc. are all being worked upon.
We want to get these improvements to you ASAP – and so are releasing fixes as they are made, which in turn will snowball into a larger improved feel. (As opposed to holding these in earlier rings, and then doing a big bang update.)
Please know that the feature team is hard at work on dozens of items to make these improvements. We’re seeing great gains in performance in earlier rings of deployment, and you will soon see these improvements as they’re released to further rings.
Again, it won’t be a single update that’ll address all the concerns, and it will take time. But gains are steadily and surely coming.
This item is still on the backlog. Though it is making its way up through the queue.
I’ll keep you posted as it gets closer.
This is still being worked upon. No ETA yet to share.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more from the feature team.
No new updates.
We continue to work towards the S4B convergence.

Top comments from internal testers at work.
Why do I need to install another app, I already have Skype for business installed? Or Why do I need Skype anymore?
This feature request is still being worked upon. No additional updates are available at the moment.
