Hi all,

I've been using Teams to do my college work and calls. I have a surface go with less than 4gb of ram ("premium devices" clearly) and I've noticed that when teams is running, everything is really slow. I've looked on task manager and there's 8 processes of Teams which is accounting for nearly 80% of my ram usage. 

Why is there so many processes being ran? Can I reduce them? 

Thanks.

Teams allocates lots of RAM memory and then releases it when other processes needs it!

Have a look here on how to optimize teams and see if something helps you:
