    Works as expected, mostly. True to the desktop version, so easy to use. One issue, it will not stay on speaker phone on Samsung Note 9. No other apps have this issue on this phone. It will be on speaker for 30 or 40 seconds and then drops back to the phone ear peice. Hard to use screen sharing or see others on video if it won't stay on speaker.
  • Great EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE THING… Feb 1, 2022

    By Geminispy
    Ok, so I broke down and downloaded the app to my iPhone sometime during the summer of 2021 because I supervise a lot of people and babysit the rest of the office so I was constantly being hounded by every method possible (texts, calls to my cell and desk, emails, and Teams). Every time I stepped away from my desk for even five minutes there was a crisis I had to handle immediately so I wasn’t able to see or respond to missed Teams messages until I got back to my computer. I would’ve given it a full five stars BUT, several months ago the emojis just vanished from my phone app. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling and logging out and back in, but alas, there’s just empty black space where the emojis should be. I’ve discovered that if I tap on a random place in the blank space, it DOES throw an emoji up for me but I have no way to know which one I’m accidentally choosing! I’ve seen other people post that they have the same issue but that glitch has been there for months and Microsoft hasn’t fixed it yet. For an industry giant like Microsoft, that’s unacceptable. A lot of people may think it’s no biggie but I use emojis a lot to soften what I’m saying when I have to inform one of my staff that they screwed up. People appreciate that more gentle approach. So yeah. I’m done with my rant now.

    Edit: support pages please. It randomly does and doesn’t work on the Same assignment and when it doesn’t work it says preparing file and never shows up. I had to use google docs as my middle man multiple times (took me really long to finally get something to work) You really need to fix this. Edit: my teacher uploaded things in order and in my iPad it shows out of order and every time I attempt to play the video (the mp4 she posted in files) it has no audio and and I click on it and it sends me out Edit: I went up a star because you guys are fixing up the app. Im still having problems with notifications. I sometimes don’t get them I guess it’s cuz I have the app open, but that’s seriously causing me problems. Ps I’ll give better rating if you support my browser ____________________________________ This app is not supported online on my browser. First of all you decided you weren’t going to support it. (Because you guys originally did until one day it just didn’t) Second of all now I have to download this app waste my space that im running out on. And yes by the way just in case you I’m overreacting I have used teams for two years now and it has had glitches all the time Are these really the same people with word, PowerPoint, Forza Horizon, Who literally own Minecraft? Doesn’t look like it.

    when it works, it's fantastic. when it doesn't, it's extremely frustrating. would be five stars but there are intermittent authentication issues that prevent smooth streamlined use of the app, so I cannot make it my one and only method of team communication. I still have to have a backup. also it is very bad at detecting changes to audio hardware on the desktop and the transition between a mobile device call and a desktop call can be very tricky.
  • Teams preliminary evaluation (first week) Aug 7, 2020

    By Kate Cullen10
    Praise: Internal integration of various technologies (Skype, Sharepoint, Outlook Calendar, etc.) and external connectivity with Office 365 constituents is seamless and functional. In particular, remote meetings capabilities, including chat, desktop share, audio, all work well within our corporate network. Also, client-based app and web-based app have essentially the same functionality and look-and-feel, which is definitely preferred. iPhone-based mobile app works well so far. Very good compliment to the main Teams usage on my corporate Microsoft Surface Pro. Criticism: I was never a fan of the Sharepoint-based file presentation and interface. Windows Explorer in details mode using libraries, shortcuts, etc. is preferred for file management. Maybe Sharepoint file presentation is needed for tablet devices. I’m a longtime laptop point-click user. Also, in meetings, it was not obvious how to re-display the control bar (enable mute, for example) once the control bar disappeared automatically. I learned how eventually, but guidance on such important items should be more prominent. I had to hunt for a solution.

    I started using this app for my new job a couple months ago, and it has been a smooth ride. I'm honestly surprised as I was expecting a number of bugs or issues as with mqny Microsoft apps. It is almost easier to navigate than the desktop app, thus it is perfect for keeping online and up-to-date when I am away from my work-station. I even often use it as another way to receive notifications while I'm working. Since it's hard to miss when my phone vibrates.

    Ok so we all know the global pandemic has bringed us to do everything at home. I am a student that uses this app DAILY and i really like it, but recently they did this new update that changed everything but not a lot because you could still understand everything that u have to do in the app so over all i liked the update. BUT there is this section on Microsoft Teams called assignments ( keep in mind that i have been using this app for YEARS)(*with no problem at all*) this section let you see all your assignments that you have to do and they’re due dates, how much they’re worth, etc. And this section was divided by every class, teams, group, etc. For example: if you went to assignments it would appear a list of all of ur classes, groups, teams, etc. And you have to click the class that you would like to see the assignments. I really liked how they were divided BUT now in the new update all of the assignments are put together and i REALLY DONT LIKE THAT because i like to keep everything very organized and i dont like that the assignments are all mixed together. Overall i like this app a lot and its very easy to use is just the little things that bother me a tiny bit.
  • The new form of communication Nov 10, 2020

    By Mannytech
    Our company started incorporating more advanced Microsoft products at the end of 2019, including Teams. What a time saver! No more jumping on planes and living around the notion that every meeting has to be done in person. From a global company stand point the first half of 2020 more effective meeting and forward progress on collaboration was done than any other year. Many things are integrated into Teams to make it as seamless as possible. Some of these include video meeting, screen sharing, multi screen control, calendar management, sync of calendar, multi device sync, controlled notifications, text message integration, user group creation, profile management, in meeting management like mute for those who don’t know when to mute microphone. In all very well thought out app. If you can’t do some of these things, it’s the administrative person that hasn’t given user rights. Watch out Apple because Microsoft has created one meeting management App for the modern work place so people can work remotely in this COVID era and any other future eras.

    Loving it more and more each day. Suggest you (and fellow collaborators) have at least two monitors to experience awesome capabilities! I believe it will only get better with time. 05/28/22: continue to love it, but finding the inconsistencies across the integrated apps/fratures challenging. I'm concerned that Microsoft may not improve the consistency because I'm fairly certain very few M365 users use it like I am. MS uses telemetry to ensure they maximize their bottom line.
  • Teams for the exec. Sep 3, 2021

    By Jeffrey Basso
    So this tool stratus to tie file, conversation and meeting all of not one place. It is a great tool. Now here is the push for Microsoft teams engineers. I need more. Their is not a tool on the market that gives me enough of what I need. Here are some examples. Looking for things I have done like files and conversations that hook to meetings. A way to trace My Day back to a meeting by clicking on the meeting. You can get there with the tools but it is still not easy enough to do so and I end of flipping through a number of screens to find what I need if I can find it at all. Here is another one. In a big company their are a lot of people. A way to fav a employee in a meeting and write a few notes about him would be powerful. Maybe tag his name based on key words in meeting title. The tool is great and I expect it to get better I just ask that you survey power execs to see how you can help them as well. We expect everything at our finger tips with little effort. Keep up the good work you are going on the right direction. Thanks

  • It’s decent. Jun 19, 2022

    By whsbflfirhdbskabbd
    At work they have transitioned from an email service to Teams. So I’m using it weather I want to or not. I like teams for collaborative work on documents, we don’t have to each edit our own copies and then try to merge all the copies together somehow, we can all work on the original document together. The chat function is fine except you cannot delete chats, you can only hide and mute them. So every chat group I have ever been in is still there just muted and hidden. There is no way to clear chats or teams. Whatever has been written will stay there forever unless everyone in the chat/team/channel deletes each and every post or comment they made. The same goes for activity. I have thousands of notifications in the activity tab that cannot be deleted. It makes the app feel very cluttered all the time. WhatsApp is way better in my opinion for chatting but of course the company wants better privacy than WhatsApp so now all our communication must go through Teams. Another problem I have encountered is using the calendar in teams, it doesn’t link up with outlook calendars very well, sometimes at all. So when we need to schedule a team call, I have to exit teams, check outlook calendars and then go back to teams. Anyway, there are some good things about teams but it could be so much better if they made some functionality improvements. I don’t have much hope that much will change however, making the user experience better isn’t a cornerstone of Microsoft.

    Bad experiences with the app... Everytime I've had a virtual interview while trying to use the app, it has failed me. The desktop & ipad version works, but the phone app is terrible! It always logs me out & then claims it cannot find my account. But I'm able to log in when I'm not on a call. This issue needs to be fixed! It does not look goodfor people who are interviewing for a new job. And I've used teams before & did not have this issue, but it's been a consistent problem with the app.

    Teams did many things well. Having an app where communications can easily be found and stored. But the inability to effectively mute certain channels is frustrating. My phone goes off all day with notifications that don't pertain to me. I don't want to leave the channel, and try as I might, turning off notifications for the channel doesn't prevent notifications from coming through.

    When I click on a meeting hyperlink to join a meeting it takes me to a window to selecting "Get Teams" or "Join Teams". When I select "Join Teams" (app currently installed) nothing happens. Multiple attempts were made to log in with the given hyperlink with no success. I tried opening the link from my email, I've tried copying and pasting it in the Microsoft Team's app, but the meeting could not be reached. I have no problems with Team's on a laptop. Mobile app definitely needs improvement.

    Nice interface, but: 1. Often times it doesn't update a conversation unless I leave it and reenter it. 2. The timestamp does not appear with every message. 3. It does not allow to segregate audio and visual notifications, is either both or none. It is extremely annoying to continuously hear dings when people cannot write complex sentences, and keep sending small batches of words.
  • Underwhelming/frustrating user experience Apr 14, 2021

    By Ofuni
    Another title for this review might be “Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None.” This product is really not best in class for any product category. It’s not the best calendar app (Google’s is much better and easier to share with others), it’s not the best video chat app (Zoom is and will be the industry leader, at least until maybe Microsoft buys them out and buries them as they did with Skype), it’s not the best messaging app (Jabber or even wonky Slack are far better). It does do a fair job of integrating all these functions, but at a price. Teams really bogs down your system. For me, it’s at a point where I just never leave teams up and running. I only open it when someone else insists on having a Teams meeting. And it doesn’t play nice with other manufacturers’ email software such as Google or Yahoo Mail. The whole point of Teams is to force you to use Microsoft’s other products. I also have concerns over privacy issues with Teams and Microsoft products in general. Teams has all sorts of nifty analytics on user behavior it can run for the owners of Teams software (i.e. the companies you work for). Unfortunately, as long as Microsoft continues to have corporate America in its back pocket, I don’t see any end in sight for this product soon.

    I just recently got a new job and this is how we communicate. So, this app has completely failed to notify me when I get a message. Sometimes, I'll sit in the chat and nothing will happen, so I'll exit out the app entirely and reenter, only to find a message from 10+ minutes ago. Very frustrating. But overall, if it worked properly, this app would be a pretty solid idea. Definitely needs some tweaking and fixes.
  • Several improvements would be helpful Feb 8, 2020

    By Notobadmovies
    Having used multiple conference/online meeting applications, there are several items that have made Teams not the easiest to use. Several clients have had trouble logging in and easily using the application, can always say why I just relay their feedback. I also want to add new participants on the fly to calls/meetings by adding their emails but they’re not accepted if they are not ‘recognized.’ If using regularly for internal teams I’m sure it’ll run better but for external sales and presentations to new prospects it doesn’t run as smooth as I require. Several times when trying to launch conferences calls thru the Teams apps, participants couldn’t hear me. So then I had to dial in outside of the app but that created issues since I had already logged in online. It would also be helpful to be able to have a static conference ID for our business so I can use it regularly rather than having to schedule each call and use unique call/meeting log ins. We use Teams as it’s part of the MS applications and we want to keep everything under one umbrella, but there are improvements that would help to put it on par with other conferencing/online meeting applications.

    This apps poorly handles Bluetooth headsets like you've never seen before. I don't understand why this is the only app in the world that doesn't recognize headsets at times or when you select Bluetooth it continues to use the speakerphone. The most basic functionality of using a Bluetooth headset Microsoft can't even get right. Additionally you can't switch between handset and speakerphone at times. What a joke.
  • May 25, 2022

    By Shawna F
    Worthless! Bluetooth devices never recognized. I join a work meeting and it fails to play the audio through the headphones no matter what I choose as the output device. It just keeps playing through my phone speaker. I know it's recognizing the device because when I finally get frustrated and hang up, it plays the audio through the device for a blip of a second. I can't just play proprietary meeting audio out loud in a crowded office. TONS of people have complained and it's STILL not fixed!!

  • I love this app! Sep 30, 2020

    By lil happy liv
    We went virtual over the last quarter of school and teams was awesome! It gave me notifications and the calendar was an awesome tool. I like how if you forget about a class it gives you a notification that tells you the class has started. And how the messages work like, well normal text messages. I also like how you can message your teachers about class work or anything! Maybe even just a thank you, and how you can message class mates but not strangers from other schools. I have never had a single lag! Oh and I like the new feature of being able to see more than four people on your screen. This works great as a collaboration app, an app for virtual meetings, even school! I am trying so hard to think of any criticism or something back right now, I am searching every inch of my brain. It’s like when you ask Siri and she doesn’t give you an answer. Well since there’s nothing bad to say, thank you for reading my “constructive criticism” comment. -Liv
  • Best app for web meetings… Oct 22, 2021

    By devinwbrisson
    Teams blows Skype out of the water! It’s 100% better, very clear with no delays or voice with video synchronization problems. No snow, and I’ve been in meetings with over 75 people logged in to Teams without a glitch or delays! It truly is an amazing app for web meetings. We tried to utilize Skype for our platform with NC DEQ, but it never went anywhere, people just quit using it. There was problems just trying to do a small group of maybe 3 to 4 people, and Skype could not handle it. Most times we just defaulted to audio because video was a nightmare! Going from Skype to Teams was like going from old dialup internet to fiber optics speed and quality, no joking! I really can’t see an app for web based meetings working any better, plus it’s very user friendly. I know there are other apps out there, but these are the two NC State has tried as far as our agency goes. Thanks… -Devin Brisson

    It's really easy to communicate with people online, Microsoft Teams is the app I used virtually for school and in person school, it's really convenient if I have a class starting in 3 minutes and my school laptop is low on battery. It's more useful to people who are in high school like me than older people who are not available. Great app!
  • Best app for video conferencing Aug 12, 2020

    By Romit..
    Really , this app deserves 10 stars . Very good app , I have installed both in my IPad and computer . It has many features like you can add background effects in your background, share your screen , record the call , add subtitles and invite participants and even guests! In chat , you can not only write messages but edit it like a champ! You can post in multiple groups , not allow people to reply and much more . You can also attach files and give praises and create a poll! in files column , you can upload files , make folders , download them , sync them , you can also make assignments and give grades ! and the new features just made me drive off ! The opening in new windows and together mode , raise hand , and quick meet option are just great! I don’t know why the foolish people are disliking this app , but I like it very very very very very very very very much.

    It's fun so far. My job uses Teams for voice chat/syncing and the experience so far has been great. I think I like it better than Zoom. The desktop/laptop version has a bunch of great features. The two issues that I've had so far is I wish it had better integration with Outlook and the web version won't let you share your screen. Teams syncs with Outlook through the Calendar, but I wish the email client was embedded, or at least embedded enough to where you could receive messages.
  • Great EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE THING… Feb 1, 2022

    By Geminispy
    Ok, so I broke down and downloaded the app to my iPhone sometime during the summer of 2021 because I supervise a lot of people and babysit the rest of the office so I was constantly being hounded by every method possible (texts, calls to my cell and desk, emails, and Teams). Every time I stepped away from my desk for even five minutes there was a crisis I had to handle immediately so I wasn’t able to see or respond to missed Teams messages until I got back to my computer. I would’ve given it a full five stars BUT, several months ago the emojis just vanished from my phone app. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling and logging out and back in, but alas, there’s just empty black space where the emojis should be. I’ve discovered that if I tap on a random place in the blank space, it DOES throw an emoji up for me but I have no way to know which one I’m accidentally choosing! I’ve seen other people post that they have the same issue but that glitch has been there for months and Microsoft hasn’t fixed it yet. For an industry giant like Microsoft, that’s unacceptable. A lot of people may think it’s no biggie but I use emojis a lot to soften what I’m saying when I have to inform one of my staff that they screwed up. People appreciate that more gentle approach. So yeah. I’m done with my rant now.

    when it works, it's fantastic. when it doesn't, it's extremely frustrating. would be five stars but there are intermittent authentication issues that prevent smooth streamlined use of the app, so I cannot make it my one and only method of team communication. I still have to have a backup. also it is very bad at detecting changes to audio hardware on the desktop and the transition between a mobile device call and a desktop call can be very tricky.

    By And i-oop sksks
    Ok so we all know the global pandemic has bringed us to do everything at home. I am a student that uses this app DAILY and i really like it, but recently they did this new update that changed everything but not a lot because you could still understand everything that u have to do in the app so over all i liked the update. BUT there is this section on Microsoft Teams called assignments ( keep in mind that i have been using this app for YEARS)(*with no problem at all*) this section let you see all your assignments that you have to do and they’re due dates, how much they’re worth, etc. And this section was divided by every class, teams, group, etc. For example: if you went to assignments it would appear a list of all of ur classes, groups, teams, etc. And you have to click the class that you would like to see the assignments. I really liked how they were divided BUT now in the new update all of the assignments are put together and i REALLY DONT LIKE THAT because i like to keep everything very organized and i dont like that the assignments are all mixed together. Overall i like this app a lot and its very easy to use is just the little things that bother me a tiny bit.

    Good, but not consistently great. I use Teams for work and most of the time, it works well. Audio quickly connects to my earbuds, is clear (sometimes echo-y or robot-y), and pretty happy with most of the latest enhancements up til now. Today it was glitchy and cut out 5 times in a 1 hour meeting. I had to turn off the camera and stop sharing multiple times. It could have been my WiFi, but all other WiFi devices worked fine. I wouldn't mind seeing an option to pop out screen sharing window, also.
  • I have to write this for school 😕 Aug 11, 2021

    By nevaehSpirakes
    To be honest this app isn’t great because when I try to join a meeting it kicks me out immediately and if somebody calls me into I press join and it kicks me out it allows students to mute and kick out whoever is in the meeting my younger sister uses this and it always says somebody in the meeting removed you and I wish it said who. This app is not great but I have to write this for school which isn’t great either. Also when I write a message to my friends or teacher it autocorrects to something completely different like if I say hi did you get the answers for question 2 I’m stuck on that then it would say hey I want the answers for 2. I don’t understand this app. Also it drains you battery like if I have to use my phone for school if my laptop is dead then I use my phone but if I have it at 100 then like 5 minutes later it’s at 1 and it’s annoying. That’s all I really have to say about this app 😕 I wish I could give 2 stars
  • Teams is great and the app is mostly great. Oct 5, 2020

    By Dancinut
    When my computer died and I started working from my iPad , I was worried I would loose a lot of my functionality in Teams as my organization works almost exclusively in Teams. I’ve been pleased to find that for the most part, the app offers the same functionality and even has a couple advantages. In a multi person call, the app will automatically shift from a multi view to a main speaker (talks more than 30-60 seconds without interruption) and back as needed. The down sides are mainly small such as you can’t have chat open and see the video feeds of others in the meeting at the same time. The only major piece of functionality that is missing is the ability to start a video call in a channel or a chat with yourself (which we use to record and share presentations.) Developers: Please add this function to the app and you’ll have a 5 star rating from me. :)

    Not all these 8th graders coming to try and dent the 4.8 customer review with their “I hate school” reviews. Anyways, this is a pretty cool app. It’s better than zoom, imo. It is tricky to get the hang of at first though, mostly because of the lack of training before the district had our school use this as our live classtime platform. The only issue I have is recently it’s been seriously bugging out. Yesterday classes had to be cancelled and due dates delayed (which is cool, yes, but not for when we still have to do the lessons crammed into time later.) today, most of the students could get on but this morning the app on my ipad stopped letting me in. I’m about to see if it let’s me in now that I’ve redownloaded it, but if not I’ve lost my backup plan for when the school’s *global protect* stops working again. Edit: no it did not let me in. Microsoft, please fix this, or if there is a way to troubleshoot that would be cool.
  • iOS improvements May 4, 2020

    By BT 1000
    The iOS version of Teams isn’t great. There are too many places all over the screen to click on, and everyone sees your arm moving around the screen until you turn the camera off (which requires you to move your arm around the screen). Just put all the controls in one strip, which a user could move to either the top, bottom, or either side depending on preference. And keep the strip up all the time - having to tap on the screen to activate controls is super annoying. Additionally, one should be able see whoever is talking while looking at other things, so just put in a “half-screen slider “ that lets you scroll over to the attendee list or comments or files or whatever. And then make it so you could continue sliding either direction so you can either go back to a full video screen, or forward to a full screen of “other”. Doing this would make the app much better to use!

    Ok,so I like teams and all but I have the 12.5.5 iOS and I putted a cloud on it(cuz it was vacation) and I tried to reinstall it but.. it didn’t work so I don’t know what happened i clear(ed) all of my memory but still no luck,BUT I heard something when I was in teams ‘please update this iPad we will no longer support 12 iOS’ And I ignored it-(DONT ask) and I went to google wrote ‘does teams support 12 iOS?’ But I found nothing(useless google) and when I always reinstall it always said ‘unable to download item please try again’ so I hope some one will tell me about this ;-; Yea so I hope they will respond cuz I’m scared Bc my mother is gonna kill me I am PRAYING FOR SCHOOL TO BE GONE- cuz I’m still doing this “reinstall” thing (this is a story now... ;-;) PEACE!:D (Tell me if I did something wrong ;-; cuz I don’t know!) 👆old message...:^ uhm it works now BUT ITS STILL 4 STARS I mean.. if it still didn’t work heh- Well it’s a 3 stars... :)
  • This app is great but I have a slight suggestion Mar 19, 2022

    By sooniceofagamer1234
    Ok so since the 2020 incident, or sixth grade year, or last year (we had to use zoom in fifth grade) I’ve had teams, and I really enjoyed it! Except for the fact that we had like 2 months straight of quarantine, anyway, one of my friends had some friends they knew from a different town, and was good friends with one of them and I decided to become friends, eventually they started being really rude, which is a big NO NO , so my point is I wish you could block them, BUT this also runs into a new problem: teachers. There should be an option to NOT be able to block teachers, as I don’t really like school, but I feel it’s so important to learn. Anyway you could give an option to teachers to have a different email so the teachers pets can’t act as teachers. Thanks for reading this and I hope you fix this!

    Works as expected, mostly. True to the desktop version, so easy to use. One issue, it will not stay on speaker phone on Samsung Note 9. No other apps have this issue on this phone. It will be on speaker for 30 or 40 seconds and then drops back to the phone ear peice. Hard to use screen sharing or see others on video if it won't stay on speaker.

    Edit: support pages please. It randomly does and doesn’t work on the Same assignment and when it doesn’t work it says preparing file and never shows up. I had to use google docs as my middle man multiple times (took me really long to finally get something to work) You really need to fix this. Edit: my teacher uploaded things in order and in my iPad it shows out of order and every time I attempt to play the video (the mp4 she posted in files) it has no audio and and I click on it and it sends me out Edit: I went up a star because you guys are fixing up the app. Im still having problems with notifications. I sometimes don’t get them I guess it’s cuz I have the app open, but that’s seriously causing me problems. Ps I’ll give better rating if you support my browser ____________________________________ This app is not supported online on my browser. First of all you decided you weren’t going to support it. (Because you guys originally did until one day it just didn’t) Second of all now I have to download this app waste my space that im running out on. And yes by the way just in case you I’m overreacting I have used teams for two years now and it has had glitches all the time Are these really the same people with word, PowerPoint, Forza Horizon, Who literally own Minecraft?

    The mobile app is constantly sending me notifications way delayed (days) and sending notifications for the same message a million times, despite having read it long ago. I need it for work, but the mobile version isn't great. Also not as easy to navigate as desktop and doesn't allow the same features without downloading other apps.
  • More things Mar 8, 2021

    By JJ not twins
    Ok, I honestly hate school. But, I think this could use some updates. First, I think you should fix the quality! Idk if it’s my computer or the teachers computer but the quality on the videos are so blurry! I can’t handle it. Second, I think you should add more signs. Like the little signs you put like the hand, smile, clapping, heart and thumbs up. Add more! Like add a toilet so your teacher knows that means your at the bathroom. Third, add a timer for the messages to get deleted! Like after 3 days the post/message has been there then it gets deleted. This would be good so there’s not a bunch of messages/posts every where. And lastly, what if you could add a focus button. Like tap “Focus” and then the next person you click on the whole screen becomes that person. (Only on your screen though obviously) so we could just see the teachers screen or anybody’s screen you want to see. This could be good cause if you don’t want people to have there camera on you can just focus on who you actually want to look at. This would way more better and I hope you could add these.
  • Nice start; needs polish Jan 3, 2018

    By Jeratain
    Overall Teams is a decent collaboration tool. When using it without being used to other competitors’ methods of working then Teams is intuitive and nice. When comparing it to Slack, then Teams takes one step forward and two backwards. But not all is hopeless! The service simply needs a handful of features and UI enhancements to improve. In terms of the iOS app, here’s some quick updates: 1. When I get notifications on multiple devices, they should dismiss from all devices once I’ve acknowledged it on any of the devices. Right now when I read something on my phone, the Mac app keeps the badge notifications. The inverse is also true. This is rather annoying. 2. More granular notifications. I don’t want to see a notification for certain channels in a team, even if a channel command is used. The lack of a mute function is unbearable. 3. Dark Mode. It’s 2018 and I don’t want to stare at a bright background in the evenings. Please give the option to enable a dark mode to save our eyesight and battery life (for OLED screens).
  • Teams doesn’t work for me most of the time Nov 10, 2020

    By BrianKy123
    Since august, I’ve been using teams for quite a while cause I have school. But when it doesn’t work, I get mad because I’m gonna be marked tardy for not showing up to a meeting on time. The problem is that the loading bar doesn’t stop, and when I tap to switch to a different chat, or the calendar or the teams, it freezes. And it freezes for a long time. I’ve tried to clear app data, I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but nothing seems to work. I’ve looked up many ways on how to fix it, but it just doesn’t cooperate. I believe that I’m the only person having this problem since everyone else seems fine. But can I get some more suggestions on how to fix this? Overall, when I did use the app before, it was great. There were some minor problems, but those were fixed shortly after. Please tell me how to fix this, I can’t stand having to go to the website just to use teams.
  • No notifications May 18, 2020

    By Alallen01
    This app has a lot of potential, but can be very frustrating. My main issue by far is the lack of notifications on my phone. I have both the desktop and mobile apps, but can’t get a single notification on my phone. I’ve turned all notifications off and back on both in the app and in my phone settings. I made sure there are no quiet hours, turned on notifications even when I’m active on desktop, turned on all notification styles in my phone settings, went through each team and chat to turn notifications on, and nothing. I get nothing. If I want to step away from my desk for a few minutes I have to bring my phone with me and constantly check it. I’ve done every troubleshooting tip, even though it’s all the things I already tried. Please fix this, it’s a big problem to not get notifications. Other than that, there’s sometimes a noticeable lag in getting messages or statuses updating. I for some reason don’t get calls on my phone, but I used to so I think that may be connected to the lack of notifications. No ability to put that your out of office as a status without putting an event in the calendar. How is there not an “off” status? The closest you can put is “away,” which is frustrating when you need to chat w someone and don’t know if they’re away for a few minutes or the rest of the day. Overall, it’s a decent app but several improvements are desperately needed.
  • iOS App Needs Updating Jul 23, 2020

    By kelseykren
    I’ve had major issues with my calendar section of the app never loading. It continually says it is “updating” but never finishes loading. I would also really love to have more features that mirror the desktop app. I can’t initiate using the whiteboard from a video call, but I can participate if someone else starts it. As a teacher, I'd love to use this. It is also really difficult to use video conferencing for teaching because I cant keep the chat open with the video screen at the same time. Please consider adding a pop out where the chat can come up next to the video like the desktop app. I also find it difficult that I can only use one note if it launches the app (which also lack features that are available on the desktop version, like the math function) rather than being able to use OneNote directly from teams. Lastly, I want to be able to manage my teams from my iPad app because currently some of the manage features are only available on the desktop version. Otherwise, the platform itself isn’t bad and some parts of the app, such as assignments, are exactly the same as the desktop version if I have them side by side to compare. I’m not sure why the app has less functionality than the desktop version, but with so many people using tablets nowadays, especially to teach from, please make them the same with all functionality.
  • Read before purchasing Nov 4, 2021

    By ToothpasteNarwhal
    So yeah, we all sort of had to use this during the pandemic. Both for work, and for school. It’s a pretty good app, but if you can use zoom for the meetings that would be better. The meetings can be glitchy. Sometimes teams automatically kicks people out of the call, and also automatically mutes people. When you have a lot of people on the call sometimes you can’t hear anything. Either no sound comes out, or there is a really high pitched sound. The chats are pretty good though. Although I must admit, I do prefer the iMessage format to the Teams format. If your looking to use teams for a long term project with a lot of people I would suggest you look elsewhere, all though it is quite easy to use and set up group chats. The judgement of weather or not your going to use it is up to you, but know that there might be consequences despite Teams’s easy set up. Three star is an appropriate rating I’d say.
  • App for professionals should do professional things Jun 3, 2022

    By MattyRich845
    In general, there is not a lot to complain about. Wish it was easier to go back to general chat window during a Teams call. Right now, I have to minimize and right click/long press on the Teams icon from the desktop to get back there without getting lost in menu maze. Most of all: I would like to multitask on my iPad without dropping off camera. I want to stay on camera if I do PnP, and I want to stay on camera if I minimize Teams so that I can do other things. I want to stay on camera if I pin teams to the half or third of the iPad. I want to stay on camera unless I turn the camera off. Offer settings for this behavior if this is not a broad default use case please. Please. Similarly, and perhaps I AM the problem here and have my settings wrong, but it would be great to see the a speaker’s presentation instead of the presenter when Teams is minimized/PNP. Thanks, Microsofters!
  • It’s decent. Jun 19, 2022

    By whsbflfirhdbskabbd
    At work they have transitioned from an email service to Teams. So I’m using it weather I want to or not. I like teams for collaborative work on documents, we don’t have to each edit our own copies and then try to merge all the copies together somehow, we can all work on the original document together. The chat function is fine except you cannot delete chats, you can only hide and mute them. So every chat group I have ever been in is still there just muted and hidden. There is no way to clear chats or teams. Whatever has been written will stay there forever unless everyone in the chat/team/channel deletes each and every post or comment they made. The same goes for activity. I have thousands of notifications in the activity tab that cannot be deleted. It makes the app feel very cluttered all the time. WhatsApp is way better in my opinion for chatting but of course the company wants better privacy than WhatsApp so now all our communication must go through Teams. Another problem I have encountered is using the calendar in teams, it doesn’t link up with outlook calendars very well, sometimes at all. So when we need to schedule a team call, I have to exit teams, check outlook calendars and then go back to teams. Anyway, there are some good things about teams but it could be so much better if they made some functionality improvements. I don’t have much hope that much will change however, making the user experience better isn’t a cornerstone of Microsoft.
  • Underwhelming/frustrating user experience Apr 14, 2021

    By Ofuni
    Another title for this review might be “Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None.” This product is really not best in class for any product category. It’s not the best calendar app (Google’s is much better and easier to share with others), it’s not the best video chat app (Zoom is and will be the industry leader, at least until maybe Microsoft buys them out and buries them as they did with Skype), it’s not the best messaging app (Jabber or even wonky Slack are far better). It does do a fair job of integrating all these functions, but at a price. Teams really bogs down your system. For me, it’s at a point where I just never leave teams up and running. I only open it when someone else insists on having a Teams meeting. And it doesn’t play nice with other manufacturers’ email software such as Google or Yahoo Mail. The whole point of Teams is to force you to use Microsoft’s other products. I also have concerns over privacy issues with Teams and Microsoft products in general. Teams has all sorts of nifty analytics on user behavior it can run for the owners of Teams software (i.e. the companies you work for). Unfortunately, as long as Microsoft continues to have corporate America in its back pocket, I don’t see any end in sight for this product soon.
  • Several improvements would be helpful Feb 8, 2020

    By Notobadmovies
    Having used multiple conference/online meeting applications, there are several items that have made Teams not the easiest to use. Several clients have had trouble logging in and easily using the application, can always say why I just relay their feedback. I also want to add new participants on the fly to calls/meetings by adding their emails but they’re not accepted if they are not ‘recognized.’ If using regularly for internal teams I’m sure it’ll run better but for external sales and presentations to new prospects it doesn’t run as smooth as I require. Several times when trying to launch conferences calls thru the Teams apps, participants couldn’t hear me. So then I had to dial in outside of the app but that created issues since I had already logged in online. It would also be helpful to be able to have a static conference ID for our business so I can use it regularly rather than having to schedule each call and use unique call/meeting log ins. We use Teams as it’s part of the MS applications and we want to keep everything under one umbrella, but there are improvements that would help to put it on par with other conferencing/online meeting applications.
  • Never works well May 17, 2021

    By historyceiling
    I’ve been using Microsoft Teams for over a year since this is the only platform my university uses (and would pay for). 1) it doesn’t sync well with their desktop app, I could never predict where the calls are going. 2) it always crashes on my laptop as soon as I attempt to turn on my camera or mic, doesn’t matter how many times I update or restart. 3) the iPad version is a tad more stable, but I can’t multitask on the same screen AND keep my camera on (which is one of the iPad features). 4) it can be really hard to find the tab/button to join a meeting, even if it’s scheduled. 5) it’s even harder to find a specific recording file unless the host goes through each recording to rename. 6) the document editing interface isn’t intuitive. 7) there is an iPhone version, but it’s difficult to turn on the speaker when I don’t have earbuds with me for a call. On the other hand, Zoom has been incredibly stable with an easy to use interface. Plus Teams stole the breakout room feature from Zoom. I could not in good conscience to recommend this to anybody.
  • teachers can unmute you?? Jan 8, 2021

    By Wavyrainbow81
    don’t get me wrong, i like teams. it’s really useful for our online classes but sometimes i get unmuted by teachers without me knowing. i find that disrespectful because it’s an invasion of my privacy at home. if teachers want us to participate in class then that’s OUR grade and participation. that’s on us. but having to go so low to unmute us without us acknowledging it is so messed up. everyone has personal things going on at home and i don’t like the idea of teachers being able to hear your personal stuff sometimes because they really do. i could be falling asleep just for one class and i’ll wake up unmuted with my phone or computer on my table and me sleeping on my bed and i’m always home alone too. there’s no way that’s fair. my grade is my grade , my fault. no excuse to listen in on what’s going on at my house. if i’m wrong that teachers can’t unmute you then there’s still something wrong with the mute button. i hope you see this as a wrong and fix this.
  • Needs some help! Apr 21, 2020

    By Gracie Leigh GBMS
    Overall, it’s a pretty great app! I had to download it for school, and for about the first week it worked great. I could chat with friends, turn my work in ( after 1 hour of trying to figure out how to do that ), and even call and FaceTime friends and teachers. But about 2/3 weeks into using this app, the bugs started happening. I can’t call any people anymore without the app just giving out and kicking me back to home screen, or doing the same when I try to turn into assignments. Very disappointed, now I have to email my teachers instead of being able to properly turn it in ( which causes much more stress for them too! My school has 1,200 students! ). I really love the idea of the app, but the glitches have almost taken over the app for me, and makes it stressful to complete school work. Also, I feel as if the app should have a guide when you first download the app too! When I downloaded it, the app was very confusing and I didn’t know where everything was, and it took me almost an hour to find my way into assignments and turning them in. It was like being in a maze! ( not a pleasant experience! ). I honestly hope this app can improve! COVID-19 will probably not end anytime soon, and I will be stuck using this app for at least a year. I don’t hate this app, but I think there are some large improvements that need to be made, so please take this as constructive criticism!
  • Revert your last update! Apr 25, 2022

    By sonomaGTLN2
    After last week’s update I have one question: Why does the UI force me to agree to the full meeting experience to unmute the first time and use landscape mode? By signing into a meeting I already am seeking a full meeting experience. This is not an added feature, it’s a more inefficient way for the user to get back to the experience we had before last week…and now we’ll be hearing people comment for the first 3 minutes of conference calls or when “they can’t find the mute button” for the next week because they can’t figure out how to unmute. If having a reduced feature meeting is necessary, don’t make it the default. Make the setting something I can toggle to if I don’t want the full meeting experience. Until a user figures this update out on their own they are stuck with: - No way to enter full meeting experience without attempting to unmute the first time/cannot make this change via view settings - No landscape mode - Distracting reaction emoji animations being on the screen 100% if the time - Needing to “slide” the controls card, press the unmute button, press/agree to full meeting experience, press the unmute button to fully unmute the first time In general this app has been great and a lifesaver during WFH periods that started in 2020, I would otherwise give it a 5 star review…but this latest update is distracting and inefficient.
  • Cannot use chat feature Jan 29, 2021

    By MTF, Esq
    I am a public defender in NYC, and the court system has moved to this platform to conduct remote court appearances. Since early November, many members of my organization (as well as many prosecutors) have been unable to access the chat feature when we sign in to the courtrooms. This is incredibly detrimental to our work, because the chat is used for signing up cases and other essential communication. Sometimes I can use a “workaround” by signing out of Teams and joining as a guest, but even this is hit-and-miss and it deprives me of most of the other helpful features of the app. Frankly, I wish the courts had stuck with Skype for Business. I wasn’t having these problems then. I have been told by my organization that the problem is on Microsoft’s end and they are working on it. It has been two and a half months and I have not seen any progress on the issue or heard any updates about when we might expect a solution.
  • iPad app still only shows 3 other participants during a videoconference Jul 18, 2020

    By newshound66
    Good video quality with no lag compared to Cisco Webex and Zoom, but it’s frustrating that the iPad app only shows 4 faces at a time, one of which is yours. Unlike Webex and Zoom, you don’t even have the option of swiping to see other participants’ videos. So you only see 3 other faces, only one of which switched to various people talking. The other 2 faces strangely remained constant during a video conference with 9 other people. Despite spending a lot of time Googling, I did not come across any article indicating that the iPad app still had this limitation as of mid-July 2020 despite articles back in April 2020 that MS had increased the view to 9 people (which I now realize is limited to the desktop app). In any event, kudos to Microsoft to allowing unlimited video conference times for free accounts when Webex has reverted to a 50-minute time limit and Zoom has always had a 40-minute limit.
  • Good potential / terrible execution Feb 4, 2021

    This ap, especially with the power and integration with Microsoft, has the potential to be great, but consistently falls down on the execution side. A few issues: 1. Call history, voice mail, chats, and other screens perpetually are stuck loading. Restarting, reinstalling, force quit all do nothing to help. 2. Video feeds are inconsistent/fail for group calls if you try to navigate the ap or switch screens at all. Audio will continue, but the video gets cut. 3. Multiple notifications for the same events -- if you miss a call, it shows up in the calls (when that works, see previous) and activities, with no logical way to dismiss the notification. Unlike ios call log, where all you need to do is open the screen to acknowledge the missed call, there are multiple menus to navigate for each one to mark as read / seen. 4. When the call history fails (per #1), the ios call history is also affected, meaning you can't find or make return calls at all from the ap or operating system. Hope you have a backup way to see who called you. I can't give this one star, as it's not the lowest of the quality aps I use, but definitely a failing grade is warranted. If my organization didn’t tie everything through Microsoft and its office suite, I would definitely not be using.

    Bad experiences with the app... Everytime I've had a virtual interview while trying to use the app, it has failed me. The desktop & ipad version works, but the phone app is terrible! It always logs me out & then claims it cannot find my account. But I'm able to log in when I'm not on a call. This issue needs to be fixed! It does not look goodfor people who are interviewing for a new job. And I've used teams before & did not have this issue, but it's been a consistent problem with the app.

    Teams did many things well. Having an app where communications can easily be found and stored. But the inability to effectively mute certain channels is frustrating. My phone goes off all day with notifications that don't pertain to me. I don't want to leave the channel, and try as I might, turning off notifications for the channel doesn't prevent notifications from coming through.

    When I click on a meeting hyperlink to join a meeting it takes me to a window to selecting "Get Teams" or "Join Teams". When I select "Join Teams" (app currently installed) nothing happens. Multiple attempts were made to log in with the given hyperlink with no success. I tried opening the link from my email, I've tried copying and pasting it in the Microsoft Team's app, but the meeting could not be reached. I have no problems with Team's on a laptop. Mobile app definitely needs improvement.

    Nice interface, but: 1. Often times it doesn't update a conversation unless I leave it and reenter it. 2. The timestamp does not appear with every message. 3. It does not allow to segregate audio and visual notifications, is either both or none. It is extremely annoying to continuously hear dings when people cannot write complex sentences, and keep sending small batches of words.

    I just recently got a new job and this is how we communicate. So, this app has completely failed to notify me when I get a message. Sometimes, I'll sit in the chat and nothing will happen, so I'll exit out the app entirely and reenter, only to find a message from 10+ minutes ago. Very frustrating. But overall, if it worked properly, this app would be a pretty solid idea. Definitely needs some tweaking and fixes.

    This apps poorly handles Bluetooth headsets like you've never seen before. I don't understand why this is the only app in the world that doesn't recognize headsets at times or when you select Bluetooth it continues to use the speakerphone. The most basic functionality of using a Bluetooth headset Microsoft can't even get right. Additionally you can't switch between handset and speakerphone at times. What a joke.

    Worthless! Bluetooth devices never recognized. I join a work meeting and it fails to play the audio through the headphones no matter what I choose as the output device. It just keeps playing through my phone speaker. I know it's recognizing the device because when I finally get frustrated and hang up, it plays the audio through the device for a blip of a second. I can't just play proprietary meeting audio out loud in a crowded office. TONS of people have complained and it's STILL not fixed!!

    i’ve had this problem where i can’t delete messages, i’ll click delete yet they will stay in the chat and just won’t go away. when i say this i mean in private chats i create with other people like classmates. my saved messages won’t work either, i press the purple bookmark to un-save them but all i have to do is refresh the page and they’re back. i think it might be because i deleted those messages, and so now they’re just stuck in this weird loop. i’m confused and i want to be able to use the chat normally again. also, sometimes when my teachers are trying to let the students into the meeting, it will not show us in the lobby. it’s happened twice and it takes time away from our lessons. PLEASE get this fixed. it’s so annoying and also i beg of you to add a feature to be able to permanently clear all chats with other people. like private chats that you create. the ones to talk with other students or mutuals. i understand that you could use other platforms but i have some student mutuals who i know only in school and intend to keep it that way, so please make that an option. there’s lots that needs to be done to fix this app and i’m very dissatisfied.

    Terrible interface! Took me half the meeting to find the chat function because the chat button is invisible unless you touch a blank space above the screen; all the visuals had the text blacked out so they were unreadable. No way to adjust volume if having trouble hearing the other participants. As much as we all hate Zoom, at least it works!

    Doesn't allow viewing or sharing of screen. The notifications need a major overhaul. Sometimes they come in, sometimes they don't, but the biggest problem is when they do work, they work too well. If a team is having a conversation I have to listen to my notification sound basically play constantly for the entire conversation which gets old very fast. If an active conversation is happening is shouldn't be notifying me for every single message.
