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.
This is the only way to make the Teams app acceptable on Windows.
The correct strategy:
On Mac, use the iPad version (using Catalina when it comes out)
On Windows use a UWP or WPF app.
It is impossible to address this issue while maintaining Electron, and Windows users, of which there are a lot, should not be forced to use Webapps.
Serious apps should not be developed as webapps. This app is a core part of O365 and that makes it serious. It should not be a webapp.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.
Alex & the Teams team
Microsoft, this is not hard.
Thread about this issue:
This feature is still in the works. There was some adjustments to the overall strategy.
I’ll try to get some additional details and share them with you.
This is terrible. "Coming to windows store thanks to microsoft edge". That does not count. What is wrong with Teams is that it is a webapp and therefore has terrible performance and memory usage.
As the last status states, we have been testing for several months. Although many people have asked for this feature, we received a similar amount of feedback from other users that they prefer the Teams notifications and don’t want them changed. We are currently testing a feature for users to choose between Teams notifications & Windows notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.
