Microsoft Teams 2.0 will bring major performance improvements
Teams forms the backbone of Microsoft's modern communications platform and is the centerpiece of productivity within the Microsoft 365 suite. One of the problems with the teams application, as it currently exists, is that it uses a lot of memory, slowing down your computer.
With Windows 11, it was announced that there is a new Teams-consumer experience in the operating system. So Microsoft is making major changes to the underlying components of the application to improve performance - integrated into Windows 11.
Rish Tandon, the CVP Engineering for Microsoft Teams, posted on Twitter that his team is taking a big step to update the architecture of the platform. The app is moving away from Electron to Edge Webview2 and that Angular is gone and the app now runs 100% on React.js.
As Tandon notes, the changes Microsoft has made to Teams 2.0, as he calls it, will take up half the working memory compared to version 1.0. That's a significant change for Teams and should help improve performance.
When everyone will be updated to "Teams 2.0" is not yet known exactly. Microsoft's first change will be when Windows 11 is rolled out.
