How can we stop Teams from running on an Android phone.  It doesn't need to be running on my laptop and on my phone and it makes the phone run slow (same as the laptop) and uses the battery. 

 

Since you cannot turn off Teams, you have to go into Apps and force stop but then Teams within a half hour starts running by itself again and needs to be forced to stop again, over and over.

Hi @rwrusselljr   What happens if you just sign out of the app on your phone?

@ThereseSolimeno Thanks for the idea, but that was already tried.  When you sign out of Teams, MS signs you out of all MS apps on your phone such as One Drive, Outlook, etc.
