Microsoft Teams on Windows 11 and Windows 10 is now significantly faster

Following the release of Windows 11 in 2021, Microsoft has been actively working on a redesigned and “from scratch” built version of Microsoft Teams for the next generation of devices. The new Teams experience is apparently called “Microsoft Teams 2.0” and is available to users with a personal account on Windows 11 devices.

The biggest difference between the old Teams client and the new Teams is the fact that Teams 2.0 is not based on Electron and that Microsoft uses embedded web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript on top of the Chromium engine for Teams 2.0. At the same time, Microsoft has also made significant improvements to Teams’ business/desktop app.

The original Microsoft Teams client for Windows 11 and Windows 10 is now significantly faster on desktop platforms, thanks to a number of improvements released in recent months. This is according to the shared statistics based on the 95th percentile statistics.

Microsoft says it wanted to take into account users on low-end devices and low-bandwidth networks, which is why the report focuses only on the 95th percentile of all desktop users in the world. This means that 95 percent of the time the experience would be better than what is highlighted in the report.

Teams is now much faster on Windows

After the recent updates, Microsoft Teams now loads pages faster than before. Latency improved by 11.4% when users scroll through the chat list. On the other hand, scrolling within the channel list is now 12.1% faster.

The message creation box has been updated and loads 63% faster, allowing you to type a message immediately.

Here is a list of the remaining performance improvements:

The time to switch between channels and open a new chat window has been drastically reduced. It’s 25% faster.
The ability for teams to switch between threads in the activity feed is now 17.4%.
Switching between chat threads improved by 3.1%.
Microsoft official confirmed that more improvements are on the way, but they cannot share the timeline at this time.

“More improvements are coming for the business version, including larger architecture enhancements, although I cannot share the timeline at this time,” the company said.
