Please go native! Or at least try to improve performance a bit. Teams runs like frozen molasses on our company's VDIs.
This is still under review by the feature team. No new details yet.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
Yeah, Teams is still using over 650MB so I'm not seeing much improvement from the changes made in November. I'm really curious about the decision to use Electron. Its primary benefit is being easy to port to other platforms, but Teams is still not available on Linux so that can't be it. Is there any reason why a native client can't be written? That could cut memory usage in half or more.
Yay — we’ve started work on this!
Or at the very least allow us to schedule the automatic updates so Teams stops updating itself in the middle of the day while I'm actively using it.
