  • Solid App for Team Collaboration Aug 1, 2020

    By Sanjay-Writes
    I was a reluctant participant to Microsoft Teams when it came out. I felt that this is yet another application that’s purporting to bring teams together and make it easier and fun for distributed teams to huddle. I am glad I was wrong. Teams kind of grows on you. It doesn’t have a lack of features... but they are presented in a way that facilitates better interaction. Yes, there are issues when you invite someone external to participate on your Teams. This part of having external users I thought was quite difficult in the beginning... but it has come a long ways. Also, the part where you are having live events with external participants. I can understand that Teams has to observe a fine line between external participation and security. I think they have done that. I also find the limits on video conferencing a challenge; but for internal meetings, it works rather well. I love how you can bring in various assets into the meetings and engage with them. There’s a lot to love about Teams, and a lot to poke holes at... ultimately, the type of application will drive the engagement from your participants, and your eventual appreciation.

    As a student it helps me so much in my classes, assignments and meetings. I think it's optional but it would be really helpful if there is a chat section in meetings, So we can share links and information with others and also helpful for the ones whose mic is temporarily in repair. Otherwise it's the best app. I would recommend it to all!!
  • Teams preliminary evaluation (first week) Aug 7, 2020

    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.

    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

    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.
  • 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

    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.
  • Love Teams! Needs a few things to be perfect! May 27, 2020

    By stagevi
    Teams has been an excellent communication tool as all coworkers are working remote now. Very easy to collaborate, create team calls, screen shares, etc. A few updates would be the cherry on top. 1. As a creative team we are always dropping files into the chat function to share progress shots, inspiration images and comps. I, and a lot of my team uses the same file naming structure for these images - so there are multiple files with the same name. Teams will not let you upload 2 files with the same name without a pop up window asking if you want to keep both files...and if I click yes it renames them xxxxxx(1), xxxxxx(2) and so on. Please make it so it either let’s me keep both files with the same name without asking or renames them automatically without asking. 2. When an audio call comes in via Teams it only shows the person initiating the call. If John Doe is calling through a multi-user group it only shows up as John Doe making team calls vs a single user call indistinguishable. A “John Doe via Project xxxxxx Group” would be all it needs. 3. More customizability within chat groups. We use chat groups 99% of the time vs broader team group windows. Would be nice to be able to change sounds, chat group avatar, background image, etc. Other than that love the app and it’s integration into Outlook calendar and contacts!

    Good additions. Good growth. A small wishlist - 1. Ability to put a private call on hold. Right now, I don't see this option. 2. Assignment messages should get converted into task. If date is mentioned then do add it as an end date. Maybe these are already available features. In which case, I definitely don't see it with my official account as of now.

    The only reason I had to download this is because of online classes in the current pandemic situation otherwise I would have never heard of this. I like the functionality of this app and how it lets me have classes, assignments and tests. However the problem I have is sometimes it takes way to long to sign in. I also dislike the audio problems and video problems. I think they must be because of network problems. But anyways I will be using this app until the end to this pandemic. Thank you

    The new update is really very annoying and irritating and too many bugs. After the new update in my phone whenever I'm in my dark theme it automatically turns into the bright theme or the dark theme and because of this it is really very hard to understand what is written. Unfortunately there no option for zero star. Please do check before you release an update. ಠ︵ಠ
  • 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.

    Really this app is waste Because, 1)After installing this app ,there are many errors in a week. 2)It does not work properly. 3)while meeting is going on the mic doesn't works. 4)It's very worst app because the sign in takes lots of time. 5)Before we are winding up the meeting ,It will go out of the meeting. There are many problems with this app in my mobile phone. 😠😈

    I pay for this service with a few company based accounts. The service teams provides is absolutely horrible. What happened to Skype for business? Anytime someone outside my organization joins a teams meeting the call service is complete horror. I don't get it. I'd rather use Microsoft then google or zoom, but google and zoom at least provide high quality meeting both internal/external to my organization. Please guys... Get it right!!! I don't want to move my entire team over to Google...
  • 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.

    The app is so bad. I connected a bluetooth headset to my mobile. The headset was working fine for all of the other things, except teams. It kept dis considering my blueooth device as an available speaker every second now and then. Secondly a feature which is required is if you go to home screen while in a meeting, you will not get your video turned off. There is no point in that feature like seriously! There is also no chat in meeting option bruh

    Whenever the App updates- it never opens.. Just keeps on saying.. "Hang on while We get things ready for you.. " This message never goes. I need to uninstall and reinstall it every time. This is pain. Our company uses this app.. Hence stuck with it. In the normal run time..hence kept a star for it. This app is fine. But updates are horrible.

    By Khloe Vargas
    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.
  • 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.

If date is mentioned then do add it as an end date. Maybe these are already available features. In which case, I definitely don't see it with my official account as of now.

    Very good app to connect with colleagues, friends from anywhere in the world. Provides good connectivity with very less data usage. Can be easily used on mobile device and PC. Easy audio and video conferencing for a larger number of people, very secure, documents can be stored and screen sharing feature is also good. Negligible disadvantages. Recommended to all.
  • 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.
  • Best Microsoft app in a decade Feb 10, 2019

    By DougNdenver
    In a world where young innovative companies having been running circles around time-honored giants like Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and SAP, it is rare to see one of the “80’s companies” produce an application that is (to put it bluntly) - relevant. Microsoft Teams puts Microsoft back on the ‘must-have’ software map, and could become the bridge the connects the old world with the new world. Unlike past product offerings, Microsoft Teams has made it easy to integrate newer (non-Microsoft) apps side-by-side with trusted enterprise apps like Office365 and SharePoint. Imagine a team collaboration “home page” where topic-based chat rooms, instant webcam meetings, private cloud file storage, mobile productivity apps and trusted office documents, live side by side in perfect harmony. For companies who are trying to make the transition from old to new; from Gen-X to Millenials and Gen-Z, Microsoft Teams provides an easy and intuitive way to get there. (Five stars)

    By No. I won't select another.
    Outstanding. Quick to pick up. Everyone benefits from it; expert and participant alike. Excellent for exploiting visual, auditory, and participatory learning and collaboration. In my experience as of April 22, 2020, multi-person editing (one person per paragraph) while on audio is a hysterically productive madhouse of rapid collaboration. It’s like watching Lionel Messi and the whole Barcelona football team do rapid-fire one-touch triangular volleys ending in a goal. However, at the moment, PowerPoint allows only one person at a time per text box (wish it could be one per bullet), and for some reason I can’t edit Visio in Teams(wish I could). Best I can do at the moment is share my screen and watch someone else edit my file while I point out things with my mouse. Bummer, since Visio is my main tool for Business Process Modeling and Notation.

    As a student it helps me so much in my classes, assignments and meetings. I think it's optional but it would be really helpful if there is a chat section in meetings, So we can share links and information with others and also helpful for the ones whose mic is temporarily in repair. Otherwise it's the best app. I would recommend it to all!!
  • Pretty good Oct 7, 2020

    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.

    By Minati Murmu
    The only reason I had to download this is because of online classes in the current pandemic situation otherwise I would have never heard of this. I like the functionality of this app and how it lets me have classes, assignments and tests. However the problem I have is sometimes it takes way to long to sign in. I also dislike the audio problems and video problems. I think they must be because of network problems. But anyways I will be using this app until the end to this pandemic. Thank you

    It's a nice app, both desktop and mobile version seem pretty well balanced with a nice user experience. This app has several features that were missing on Slack, and feels much more convenient. However, I do notice that the option to reply to specific texts isn't available on desktop. Sometimes it becomes really important to be able to do that, and I would have to respond through my mobile device instead. This fix will help improve the ux on the desktop. Otherwise I would recommend this to all.

    Absolutely fantastic, has changed the way I am able to communicate and share resources within my business phenomenally. The only complaint I have about Teams is that you cannot upload anything unless you upload it to the desktop, then drag it across to Teams, and that you cannot drag or copy files between teams.
  • 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!
  • 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. :)

    This app does A LOT. That said, I feel it falls short on being the perfect collaboration app. I think it needs Push to Talk (PTT) functionality and shopping lists (for my wife and I at the grocery store, or running to get lunch for my coworkers). I also wish it had more fluid UX in the dashboard when dealing with shared tasks and calendars. Good but not GREAT.
  • 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).

    Collaboration-wise Teams is impressive. Very intuitive. But as for video conferencing, still has a ways to go to catch up to Zoom. You can not have two-way audio and be signed in twice in the same conference call. I work in I.T. so I need to be in the conference on my laptop presenting, while at the same time I sometimes need to take the conference into the server room so I can be the "eyes and ears" and carry out tasks. When I do that Teams says I either get disconnected on the laptop call or I get listen-only audio conference. Why?? I try to unmute myself but no one hears anything.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Everything is ok. But, this app consumes so much data and battery life, which is the major problem of this app. My PC app is not working at all. Everytime when I logged in, it showed "We can't connect you at this time" or "You are not coonected to internet" even when I was connected to my internet with a speed of 5 MB/s
  • 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.

    Whenever the App updates- it never opens.. Just keeps on saying.. "Hang on while We get things ready for you.. " This message never goes. I need to uninstall and reinstall it every time. This is pain. Our company uses this app.. Hence stuck with it. In the normal run time..hence kept a star for it. This app is fine. But updates are horrible.
  • 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.

There are many problems with this app in my mobile phone. 😠😈

    I pay for this service with a few company based accounts. The service teams provides is absolutely horrible. What happened to Skype for business? Anytime someone outside my organization joins a teams meeting the call service is complete horror. I don't get it. I'd rather use Microsoft then google or zoom, but google and zoom at least provide high quality meeting both internal/external to my organization. Please guys... Get it right!!! I don't want to move my entire team over to Google...

    The app is so bad. I connected a bluetooth headset to my mobile. The headset was working fine for all of the other things, except teams. It kept dis considering my blueooth device as an available speaker every second now and then. Secondly a feature which is required is if you go to home screen while in a meeting, you will not get your video turned off. There is no point in that feature like seriously! There is also no chat in meeting option bruh
  • glitchy. Feb 25, 2021

    By Khloe Vargas
    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.

    Extremely frustrated with this app. Authentication is such a pain with the obligatory phone call after you enter your password, and it frequently fails. If you momentarily leave the app, you have to sign in again as well...with another phone call... Additionally, there are several OTHER apps you MUST have in order for it to work. Now I'm locked out of my account because one of the other apps I need doesnt work. Functionally, Teams is ok once you're signed in, but such a terrible experience. 0/10

  • App crashes, no customer support. Feb 11, 2021

    By leftykiller
    I use it everyday as part of my job. Since Monday, 07FEB2021, it has frozen and crashed everyday. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app, and then it works fine. I’m forced to write this bad review because Microsoft has zero customer support. I went through the phone number, which led me to a website. Went through the bot assistant (which is worthless), and it said, “click here to talk to a real person.” I thought, “Great! Now I can get a trouble ticket in with the company.” I was very disappointed when it sent me to their public online forum, that they even warn you could have scammers posing as agents. This is extremely frustrating and I have given up. Once Microsoft fixes the bugs with their app, I will change my review. This is making me wonder why I pay a yearly subscription to Office 365 though, especially since it used to be that you could just outright buy the Office software suite, and you had better support where you could talk to a live person. Where is all of my money going Microsoft, if it’s not going to take care of your customers?

I didn't like such type of apps..the notification of such app is very irritating me.. It makes new microsoft account for each person..the sign in process is very critical.. I suggest you to add 3 account with same phone no. and gmail...
