Would also like to hear if there are plans for a TEAMS lite app for users restricted or choosing to limit TEAMS to Instant messaging. (for example: a customer service department)

This would be a great idea. I like Skype for Business for the IM functionality. Teams client is too much and occupies whole screen, not nice for quick IM.

The teams app is really ram consuming and i would love to have a lite alternative to it. People like me who can't afford better laptops are suffering a lot because of this. I have to attend my live classes and it takes a lot of time to join a meeting sometimes just due to lag. It is a kind message to all developers that please look into this issue. It would be really helpful.

@kushagragaur31 i am also having the same issue that you have. MS should come up with a lite app for teams. when it was Skype for business, it was used only for chatting and calls which was so helpful. here in Teams MS has plugged hell a lot of things inside and made it heavier than anything else which is so sad.
