After the release of Windows 11 in 2021, Microsoft has been actively working on a redesigned and built from scratch 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 original Microsoft Teams client for Windows 11 and Windows 10 is now significantly faster on the desktop platforms, thanks to a number of improvements released in recent months. This is according to the shared stats based on the 95th percentile stats.
Microsoft says it wanted to consider users on low-end devices and low-bandwidth networks, so the report only focuses on the 95th percentile of all desktop users in the world. This means 95 percent of the time the experience would be better than what the report highlights.
Teams is now much faster on Windows
After the recent updates, Microsoft Teams now loads pages faster than before. The latency has 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 compose box has been updated and loads 63% faster, so you can start typing a message right away.
Here’s a list of the remaining performance improvements:
- The time to switch 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 has been improved by 3.1%.
Microsoft official confirmed that more improvements are on the way, but they can’t share the timeline at the moment.
“More improvements are coming for the enterprise version, including bigger architecture improvements, although I can’t share the timeline at this time,” the company said.
