New Microsoft Teams Performance Benchmark
Microsoft Teams (Teams) is a collaboration platform that combines workplace chat, video meetings, file storage, and application integration. It is part of the Microsoft 365 suite of applications and is designed to help teams stay organized and connected. Teams allows users to communicate and collaborate in real-time, share files, and access applications from a single platform. As application performance is key to productivity, Teams has a regular cadence of releases focused on enhancements to functionality, performance, and ease of use.
This report benchmarks the performance differences between two versions of the Microsoft Teams desktop application for Windows: classic Teams (version 1.1, release June 2022) and new Teams (version 2.1, preview release March 2023). It showcases the improvements provided by new Teams by comparing the results of tests across three domains—installation behavior, application responsiveness, and resource utilization.
