Any plans to overhaul the Teams mobile client as it has high usage on both Android and iOS platforms to the point battery consumption can be almost 50%. Other competitor mobile applications do not do this, or have remedied the battery consumption issue. Most of my customers can barely make it to noon before getting low battery warnings on their mobile devices.

@Karuana GatimuIs this on any agendas for attention? I've been having 35 - 50% Teams battery drain on Android without even using Teams mobile app during the day, and today it used 10% even after I stopped the app. Didn't disable it, but did stop it. How does it drain when stopped? I don't want to encourage colleagues and teammates to use mobile versions if they don't have a charger with them at all times.

Same here. Android phone left idle overnight, with Teams app not started and very little if any activity on our company Teams. Next morning a significant drop in battery with Teams responsible for 33%.
That is simply not sustainable.
The earliest reports of this issue here are more than a year old now.
Microsoft, please look into this ASAP.

Is anything being done to address Teams video meetings draining laptop batteries?
My battery went from 86% to 5% during a Teams meeting. And no, this is not an old laptop. Also, Mac or PC, doesn't matter: Teams will nuke your battery in no time flat.
In reading previous posts, its been an issue for over two years. Anyone find any fixes? Is there any planned fixes in the roadmap?

When I had issues about the power consumption with Teams I did the following:
- update / reinstall the company portal app (Intune) if that is in use. To me it seemed that Intune & Teams had entered into a some sort of mismatch so I eventually removed & reinstalled Intune to fix some issues.
- Teams app remove + reinstall was not a bad thing to do while doing that to Intune
- earlier I also had issues with Microsoft Authenticator. Again - remove + reinstall solved the issue.
One or two of those usually fixed the power drain. Intune trick I did a couple of times but those had months in between.
