Hi everyone,

We're trying to lauch the Micrsoft Teams to all company phased by of small pilot groups, however the most of the feedbacks that we receive it's about the impact in the users desktops perfomance when the Teams client is started.

Conversations with the Microsoft engineers that support our implementation, this information about the decrease of performance with Teams Client is confirmed. So my question is .. Is there any roadmap to launch a light version of this client or an improved version?

Now this is the huge blockage we're facing about to launch teams.

Thanks.

I don't notice any performance decrease on the computer unless you are using some kind of 10 year old netbooks, it should run fine. The only time I notice performance impact is on start up.

They are constantly improving the app with each version they release in terms of startup speed and memory usage and they continue to work on this.

There is no mention of a new lighter client in the works AFAIK since the Windows 10 app got cancelled.

Cmon now Chris, there's definitely a lot of room for improvement on that front. Sure, I also don't usually notice any performance issues on my beefy desktop, but when I'm on the road with the laptop it's a different story, even more so when the wifi is bad. There are numerous threads here and almost 100 uservoice items about performance, yet we have almost zero feedback from Microsoft on any progress being made on this front. And that's the least they can do.

Oh I don't disagree there. This app should run much better than it has for so long. Don't want to defend that. Just pointing out that there have been improvements and Microsoft still knows it's not where it should be. Last I checked anyway, and if not I hope so because it definatley still has a long way to go :P.
Tom posted on twitter today a picture of a setting in teams to lower the performance of the application! Anyone heard about that??

Most of our environment is composed by lenovo thinkpad e431, an median machine. So the Teams client decrease considerably the performance.
Mine is a Dell Latitude 5480, in my case I don't notice either the slowly.

Hi @Natália De Moraes Léo , how much memory ( RAM) is there on your machines, if you are at the minimum requirement of 4Gb then you'll likely start seeing impact when trying to run more apps at the same time. Microsoft having been working through improving performance by loading features when they are needed which should also reduce the memory requirements. 

 

I've never seen a performance issue, but I've also not used it on machines with less than 8Gb.

Ditto, I've seen Teams load slowly and obviously has it's laggy navigation etc. But never seen it actually make a machine run poorly. But I also never have below 8GB.
