Are you happy with Teams performance? In particular, the Teams desktop client on Windows? Are you happy with its resource usage?
Ever since the client launched, people have reported different stats on the RAM and CPU usage. For me, it always seem to average around 400MB - way too much for an app just idling in the tray, but I tried to live with it. For the past few days however, I'm seeing spikes of over 600+ MB of RAM usage, so it seems to have gotten worse.
TL;DR - This is getting ridiculous now, help us shift Microsoft's priority towards solving the issue - go vote for the UserVoice item here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17219609-teams-uses-600mb-and-...

Slack is also crappy in this regard, gotta love modern day programming...

The performance of the app is very poor! But this wasn´t always the case...
I have recognized the performance issues nearly 1 1/2 months ago... I assume it has something to do with one of the recent updates...

Teams resource use is just under the resource use by visual studio
It is a resource hog
There is nothing about the desktop interface I like, it seems like a pre-alpha product
It is a very immature product

It requires .NET to run (i have found it out when installing on Windows 7 PCs, as Windows 10 already have the version it needs), so no surprises here. It also always felt like a web app port to Windows. It should be a native app to operate optimally, but i guess it will be hard to make it and keep feature parity with web version. Yes, i see large usage of memory also. And recently i just disabled it from auto start with Windows, because i use it rarely (mostly for Planner) and my PC is not very new and is already using most of its resources for other stuff.

Completely agree about performance issues.
Most noticable for me is when I'm attempting to collaborate with others while having video/audio.
It seems like MS Teams forces the priority of my resources to be on the video and audio quality, even when I am sharing my screen during a session. If I'm sharing my screen, it's obvious that my team and I are trying to collaborate in some way.
I've experienced huge spikes of lag, long load times, etc. only when I'm sharing my screen in Teams.

In last few days, it seems that MS Teams was updated to some buggy version - having huge memory leaks resulting of MS Teams taking half of my 16GB RAM :(

@Vasil MichevI have only recently set it up for my users, and was happy with its range of features, but now it has been pointed out to me that it is the most resource hungry app on their systems (and seemingly just keeps consuming memory 380MB when started and currently 550 and rising). I think this is more than a little sloppy.

Well, according to MS (as it seems) the only thing you need for work is Teams. You just collaborate and everything happens.. /s

It's pretty insane that a chat-app consumes more ressource than needed to run 2x Virtual Windows XP Installations...

@Vasil Michev No.
It seems to get worse with time. I just killed my Microsoft Teams app and it used 25% CPU (constantly) and 1.2GB of RAM. And this is me having 3 conversations with about 10 contacts, in total.
Skype for Business is also getting unusable so I dont know if the goal is that we should all use Skype classic, that at least does the job.
