Microsoft Teams Comments & Reviews 2022

- A very good app for to connect from anywhere, anytime

So I got introduced to Microsoft Teams when my school explained that they were going to use it as their mode of classes during the pandemic. Before this I never knew that there was an application like this. (School or Work account) When I started using Teams, everything was crystal clear and I could easily access documents or links uploaded anywhere. The in built features like activity, calendar, files and tasks helped me organize all my work and kept it easy to stay on top. But I think you could fix an issue in where assignments is not loading if I go to it directly making it cumbersome to go though each team and check the assignments. (Personal account) I have only used this feature recently and it was just great. All you need is an email account to sign in. It was really smooth and I accessed any material in my groups instantly. We could create as many groups as we want without confusion and schedule meetings and call others anytime from around the world. I personally liked this app as it was par to many leading chat apps like WhatsApp, telegram etc.

- Buggy

This app is very buggy, especially when working with the desktop version. Joining and transferring meetings always bugs out and fails to join at least once. The iPhone and iPad apps fight for Bluetooth control with AirPods when you’re joining from 2 devices and will put you on speakerphone on one device without allowing you to turn off audio. Sharing links and media from other apps just sits and spins “Checking your organization policies…” and I have to quit Safari and try again multiple times. Notifications are buggy and don’t notify when you set the desktop availability setting but then walk away for an hour. Can’t join a meeting from the calendar and select which account you want to use. Can’t pin messages in chat. Notification icons show red but there are no notifications after switching accounts. Viewing a shared screen on a call does not allow total full screen on iPad. Whiteboard integration creates a totally new whiteboard outside of the meeting if you want a new page. Can’t search across accounts for meeting invites. Scrolling back in messages constantly bugs out and you go back to the current message. Can’t use DMTF tones when on a Teams call and you call out with PSTN. Sharing your screen from iPad or iPhone fails often and I need to exit the meeting, close the app, then try resharing. No way to make someone a presenter when on a call. No drafts of meeting invites. This app needs lots of work…

- It’s decent.

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.

- Great EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE THING…

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.

- No

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.

- Teams preliminary evaluation (first week)

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.

- Underwhelming/frustrating user experience

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.

- Pretty good

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.

- Avoid if you want something reliable

This app is very unreliable. There are wayyyyy too many issues for me to give it a high rating. If I were the one in charge of picking programs at my company I would definitely look for something that doesn’t glitch out or have so many issues while trying to log in. It’s common knowledge at my company that teams will be difficult and crash/cut people out of our video calls and chats. And that employees will have a hard time getting teams just to open the video chat link. We literally have a grace period to log in because the bosses know that teams is difficult for everyone due to these issues. I usually have to open the link 3-7 times before it will actually open the call. And yes, that’s with the new update. Not to mention that teams glitches in the chat so much that everyday I have to eventually log back in because it’s crashed or my text won’t send. And then I have to try and re-open the link another 3-7 times before it will work. And sometimes even after the video call opens, the chat will not open, so then after waiting for it to hopefully pop up, I’ll have to close the app and try another 3-7 to 10 times to get back in again. It’s just not a reliable program and it causes a lot of annoyance and wasted time.

- The new form of communication

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.

- Teams for the exec.

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

- I love this app!

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

- More things

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.

- Several improvements would be helpful

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.

- glitchy.

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

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.

- Best app for web meetings…

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

- Love Teams! Needs a few things to be perfect!

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!

- I have to write this for school 😕

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

- App is very intuitive an easy

What’s nice about the app is that it seems to work even better than the desktop version. I can’t think of one time that I’ve had this app on my phone. Give me any kind of issue with locking up or shutting down however, with the desktop version, at least once a month, I find myself somehow in a situation that will require me to reboot my PC! I do know that this could be so many things that it may not even be the program itself. I would be a great tester because the feedback I’d provide I think would be very helpful again not on this app but on the PC I don’t like to try and start a recording of a meeting finding the button is opinion I feel like I have to search for each and every time I go to start a meeting and I don’t understand why it’s not more prominent, the start button that is for recording.

- Nice start; needs polish

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).

- App crashes, no customer support.

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?

- Best app for video conferencing

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

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)

- Horrible App, do not use

As an educator I am constantly looking for innovative programs and applications that allow me and my students to strive within our current academic setting that has been hindered by the virus. I initially downloaded this app expecting a better way to connect with my students, but I was horribly mistaken. Throughout the school year there was one student who failed to turn in any assignments or tests. He was here on an academic scholarship from North Korea and depended on the scholarship money to survive. I worked with him to resolve this troubling issue, yet the issue persisted and by the end of the semester he had not turned in any assignments and was failing. This meant his scholarship was officially revoked. Without the scholarship he had no other choice to return to his home country of North Korea. When he entered North Korea he was immediately arrested as a “traitor to the nation” for leaving his home country to attend college in the U.S. To this day he is serving life in a brutal prison in North Korea. A couple days ago I found out the he actually turned in all the assignments, Teams just didn’t notify me.

- Great app for communicating

So after Covid started, my school started using zoom at first but then once everyone found out that this pandemic was not going to last a few weeks, but more like a few years, everyone went to teams because these reasons: 1) You have more virtual backgrounds (which many of my classmates and me enjoyed playing around with) 2) There is a schedule that can sync with outlook calendar so if you get this app, it’s best you also get outlook with it. 3) Teams is more like academically based so you can get literal assignments from your teacher with a deadline that you have to meet, and your teacher/whoever is giving you the assignment to complete can give you feedback and you can undo hand in if you have a few mistakes to correct. Overall, I think this is a wonderful app to use and I highly recomend it!

- Indispensable

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.

- No notifications

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 is great and the app is mostly great.

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. :)

- iOS improvements

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

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!

- Read before purchasing

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.

- Teams doesn’t work for me most of the time

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.

- App for professionals should do professional things

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!

- Needs some help!

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!

- Good but can be better

I use this as a volunteer. Several training sessions and meetings that I get invited to each month. I have used it on my iPhone and and laptop. Thanks to a mistake on my part the laptop that I use now takes several minutes to load teams. I prefer the laptop because it is easier to see shared information on screen. I can not setup any groups on my iPhone unless I send an invitation immediately. As the team lead, I wanted to have everyone in a group before setting up an event. I prefer to organize things so I just click on a group, send the invite, and then work on other things. If there is a way to do this, the app is not very forthcoming with the info. This also why I do not like being hounded to do a review when I have only just started to work with the app for myself instead of clicking the invites sent by others.

- teachers can unmute you??

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.

- Baha

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 App Needs Updating

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.

- It grows on you ... like ivy

I have used Teams almost since it came out (Disclaimer: I am a contractor at Microsoft). For our team, it replaced Skype for Business. It's better than Zoom for presenting PowetPoints (I want to say, "Duh!" here, though it's common knowledge that not all Microsoft products play nice with each other). This is true whether you are presenting or watching a presentation. As a presenter, you can see your notes on the same screen as your slide, and use a laser pointer to highlight. You can also write/draw on the slide. I think the coolest presenter feature is the ability to insert yourself, like a TV meteorologist. As an attendee, you can have content presented in high-contrast if you're taking the meeting from the beach. You can also enable captions, when take your meetings at the airport, for example. If the presenter allows, you can move forward and backward through the deck without affecting anyone else. The best part of the mobile app is the rainbow theme they call Pride. Most posts and chats are basically monochromatic. The theme givea you rainbow tools. Everything is not rosy. It can be awkward to switch between a presentation and chat. Also there are sufficient differences between the mobile and desktop that sometimes finding what you need tap is challenging.

- User experience is extremely stupid

So first off there is no way to delete chats, so there is unnecessary and very annoying clutter that can't be removed. There isn't even an option to hide a chat despite it saying to do so online. There are no "three dots" with more options like it says. Second thing getting on my nerves is how the calendar is only accessible on your personal account, which renders it completely useless for the actual team channel where you'd need to make that information easily accessible to everyone. Same with tasks, also only available for your personal account. There is also no way to add your own personal account into your own business channels. So the features locked behind the personal account version, at that point, could have never been accessed by you or your team anyway. I don't even understand how you could design an app this frustrating and think that it's okay to make it available for other people. I will be searching for other options now.

- Revert your last update!

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.

- Solid Interface

Only two criticisms is the fact when you delete channels, you can’t name a new channel the same name. When you delete a channel it should delete all data associated with it. Only being allowed to change the privacy setting on a channel during the creation of the channel is inefficient, especially when considering my first grievance. If you mistakenly forget to change the privacy setting upon creation, you are forced to delete the channel, but prior to doing so you’ll need to rename it, so you can use the same name when creating the new channel with appropriate privacy setting. Suggestion 1: Make it to where a channel is deleted all data associated with the channel is deleted so you can reuse the name. Suggestion 2: Add the capability to change the privacy setting during any point of the channels lifespan.

- Cannot use chat feature

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.

- Surprised

I don’t write a lot of reviews but have to say this app / service is slick. Our office uses MS 365 and generally detest MS software but figured I’d try this out to see if it was worth while for the team to use. I am actually surprised with how easy it is to use for chat and really surprised at the video quality. You can make voice calls and leave voicemails too! Sharing files and having team discussions in separate channels has been a blessing to my email inbox. The only challenges experienced have been memory usage and battery drain. This app will gobble up every bit of free memory and battery power it can get its hands on. Since I’m on a laptop that’s no bueno¡ Overall, the service is stable, feature rich, and has great iOS apps. Again, really surprised me.

- Typical Microsoft Garbage

The app worked fine. Nothing out of the ordinary except for call quality sometimes randomly turning to crap but overall it was an ok app. But with the latest update OMG this app has turned into an absolute heap of trash. Every time Teams notifications appear and/or I have to get into the app, the Teams startup screen loads and then it freezes. But here’s the kicker not only does it just freeze, it crashes my phone so badly that my home button stops working. Everything stops working. It prevents me from getting into any other app. And all that my iPhone shows is this irritating Teams start screen. It has been continuously happening with the latest update. And now every time I load Teams, it trashes my iPhone and the only solution for me to be able to use my phone is to do a hard reset by long pressing the sleep wake and volume down button. This is the kind of garbage that makes me despise Microsoft and keep away from most of their products.

- Branch MGR

Microsoft teams is excellent for people that work on the go, or work remote. It allows you to still take care of important things from your phone. You don’t have to be stuck to your computer in order to do it. The amount of convenience that Microsoft teams has given me while I’m working remote is priceless. For those that have any doubts or debates on the usefulness of Microsoft teams, I want to put those issues to rest right away because assuming your Internet connection is strong, you can function away from the office using Microsoft teams. I didn’t even get into the fact that you can do video calls and use filter so your background doesn’t look bad. It’s a one stop shop so download it right away and use it frequently.

- Actually Impressed

I’m not one to stop and take the time to write a review, but if an app has ever deserved some praise it would be this one. My opinion is based solely on a few weeks of heavy use of Teams since COVID-19 has forced our crew to rapidly transition to working from home, so there could still be a slight chance that what I say fails to take all circumstances into account. That being said, I really have enjoyed Teams as a collaborative tool. I’ve organized and participated in meetings with multiple users (usually 3 or 4, up to 10 on a few occasions) and the Teams interface has functioned flawlessly almost every time. Screen-sharing with audio communication, video conferencing and group presentations are the features I’ve used the most, and they are all user-friendly and simple to execute. The multi-user meetings with content sharing even worked well on my iPhone (this was something that truly impressed me). Plus there’s a “give control” option that you can use if you need hands-on help trouble shooting an issue on your device (fyi - I’ve only used this feature on our company’s Macs and PC’s, haven’t tried it on a phone or tablet). In summary: a few weeks in, and I’ve got nothing but praise for Microsoft Teams

- Teams Review

This app is pretty cool. How it differentiates from Skpe and others you can look at the screen sharing function allowing the person you are talking not only view your screen but take control of yours. The mobile function is easy and functions just as good as WhatsApp & others. Video & sound quality is good. Security is solid as you can set up a pin to log on so personal info is safe. My only gripe is the inability to delete messages. Maybe I just haven’t figured out how yet. Overall it’s great for businesses to keep in touch with employees. For example I’m in Dubai & I communicate with colleagues in Iraq, the US and Afghanistan seamlessly. We had over 150 employees on one call and the connection remained strong. Most definitely recommend A+++

- Battery Drain and no auto dark mode

The functionality and feature parity of Teams is really good across platforms. But the quality of the apps is pretty poor. Whilst I can handle some rough edges the main deal breaker right now on iOS is the battery drain - it’s terrible, my iPad was burning through it’s battery (usually it’s great) and when I checked the battery usage it was about 70% Teams which was very unreasonable since I’d only had a short audio call and otherwise the odd text chat. My other general annoyance is the theme switching to dark is very clunky - it crashes and reloads the app by design! And this doesn’t seamlessly switch like most native apps when iOS switches. Overall I wish some more care was put into the native iOS app - that battery drain is a serious issue - I need to use this on the go with confidence and I can’t right now.

- Just one major bug

This app is really helpful and I love it. But for some reason no matter what image I use I can't change my profile picture. I have even tried doing another way which was updating the profile picture on office 365 since teams and office 365 are connected and nothing has worked. I try to do this at least once a weak but nothing happens. Even when I press that check for updates button . I still doesn't register anything. Also when you update the profile picture though office 365 all the office 365 apps related to it are supposed to update their profile picture and none have updated. When i go into the edit profile picture settings in office 365 it shows that I have saved and I has updated the photo. I have had a look on the internet and I have found that a lot of people are having exactly the same issue. So I would nice if you could try and fix the bug. Because that would be a really good feature to have when you have multiple people in a meeting and you will be able to straight away tell who it is. Apart from that the app is perfect. That is why I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.

- Really good but

Teams is really super, but it desperately needs to be a multiple document interface style application where you can have multiple things open at the same time. If you’re having a meeting and reviewing a task list, navigating to a document that you want to discuss, you have to navigate back to where you were and that’s all too clumsy. If you had the ability to minimise what you’re looking at, follow a link, bring up a calendar, etc. and just tab between the open items within the app, it would become super useful. Otherwise, I say the concept is great and it occupies a fantastic place between an inbox, calendar, shared folders, workflow manager and IM. It is everything that an actual team needs. One last thing… please make it possible to change the privacy settings on a team channel from team-wide to private or back again, or to have it team-wide plus guests or team-wide minus exceptions.

- (PLEASE READ🥺)!

I use this app for school and ever since I’ve used it it has been draining my iPad battery I used to only put my iPad on the charger every night or maybe once during the day but with using Microsoft teams I have to put my iPad on the charger after every class has finished, which this is not just only ruining my iPad battery life but also making my iPad extremely hot that I can’t even touch it properly, and not to mention since I’ve been using this app my iPad now goes off between 50% to 30% which it should be going off at 5% or 10% so this app ruins my iPad battery to the point where I have to buy I new iPad I’m going to be extremely angry! So now I’m having problems with this app logging me in and out of calls when I’m in them so I’m missing out on important information for school, and not to mention with my battery draining really fast with this app it is also making my iPad really laggy so if you don’t fix this ASAP and this RUINS MY IPAD you will BE BUYING ME A NEW IPAD - thanks

- Great app but…

Microsoft Teams is a great app except for 2 things. The first thing I will say is said many times in the reviews, it drains so much of my battery. If I forgot to plug my iPad in during the a meeting I have to switch to my laptop and that takes a few minutes, usually I get in trouble with my teacher because they think I’m skipping class. The second thing is logging back in my account. When I try to log back in it takes me millions of tries to back in. It kicks me out of the app and then after doing that lots it takes 20 minutes to finally get in. Other than that I love how you can text friends, share screens, have groups of teams and breakout rooms. Good luck for fixing these things.

- Missing feature?!

To start with, teams is an amazing app and very convenient for work and schooling. However, in the screenshots used to show off the app in the App Store we can clearly see a chat button and working chat feature. However, once the app is downloaded this feature is nowhere to be seen, and I even had the feature for about a week when it was first implemented before it randomly disappeared with no warnings or updates. This feature was one of the most useful features and I see absolutely no reason for it not to be there. Until the chat option is re-added, there is blatant false advertising for this app using a feature that is no longer included.

- Missing so many simple things!

This app has real potential however is missing so many simple (yet important) things. For example you can only see 4 people in a video conference. The changes to capacity to enable you to see more than 4 people have been “in the works” for over a year with no updates! The same goes for changing the profile picture in a group chat. A year ago Microsoft said this was “officially in the works” but has still not managed to provide this function! You can’t create a ‘chat’ that is linked directly to a ‘team’ (you can only “post” in the team or, create an entirely separate - not linked - chat and add the same people). All of these functions seem so basic and yet don’t yet exist! Wasted potential really.

- Works well but...

I find the app very convenient and love that I can run my video and sound seperate from my computer, also my computer fails at Bluetooth headset mid meeting the app on iPad and iphone does not I would prefer the focus screen to option to be under the the same menu as the computer app uses for ease of use and consistency I had to go search how to focus on the shared screen rather than pay attention to what was being shared I would also like to see the whole calendar (day, weekly monthly) across the screen until I select an appointment to view details then be able to go back to the overview

- Great but we expect more...hence only 2 star.

It’s a great app, but there are little things still not done properly. This last update on my 11 Pro Max makes the app runs where sluggish, have to press on things twice sometimes for it to register. - Bluetooth issues - changed my audio to iPhone half way through meeting from AirPods and it doesn’t allow me to change back to AirPods (in fact just doesn’t display AirPods option in audio again. - before joining the meeting if I have mute on, it’s auto unmutes after I’ve joined the meeting? Annoying bug. - no pinned chat functionality. I don’t understand why it can’t be replicated from desktop app? If you have pinned chat in desktop app, it should reflect on mobile app.

- Excellent app, just needs one minor addition

The whole entire Microsoft teams service is an absolute game changer, and is much like having Skype for business & Slack integrated into the same application. Screen sharing is lightning fast. I cannot fault the collaboration side of this service! The only thing which is quite frustrating, is the inability to have more than four people on screen when in a video chat. To make matters worse, you can’t swipe to a new page to see any other connected caller's video. Sometimes this can be problematic if a few people are talking at once and the active speaker who you want in the foreground doesn’t automatically show on screen. I was very happy to see this was updated on the macOS app and the Windows app. If this feature was added into the iOS app also, 100% would be a 10/10 piece of software which doesn’t compare to any other platform or service. Minor issue, but aside from that, it’s an excellent service provided by Microsoft

- Useful to be mobile but tweak a bit please

Hi - I find it very handy as a part time worker to be able to catch a meeting on a day off without having to sit in front of a computer and stop my other plans. E.g. I washed up today while catching a meeting that keeps me informed. I have finally got almost used to finding the chat function - there is a menu that I hunt for chat frantically and can’t find it - but it’s only when I’m out of the menu and tapping the screen that the chat option reveals itself. So for me counter-intuitive and frustrating. Thanks for asking!

- Uses Gigabytes of storage even after clearing downloaded files and app data

Teams was the fourth most app using storage on my device (2.9GB of Documents and Data plus the app) and using the Clear downloaded files and Clear app data options within the settings multiple times had no noticeable affect. After completely deleting the app and reinstalling it, it is now using 49KB of Documents and Data plus the app. It seems the two Clearing options within Settings need some attention as they don’t seem to work as intended.

- Teams is excellent

Teams is a revolution in collaboration, the functionality is much more effective than the old SharePoint. The MS Office suite is very well integrated, you can have lots of different people working on the same file at once, you can chat directly about the collaboration in the file. The meeting functionality is great, call quality is excellent and having the App on your smartphone means you’ll never miss a meeting again. If your team isn’t using MS Teams yet, then you’re working in the ‘stone age’, email is dead, persistent chat is now!

- Bad UX

While this is one of the most helpful tools, but it would probably be one of the worst as well. The individual chat screen sometimes becomes full screen with no way to return to the chat list, and it also doesn’t handle landscape/portrait switches as would any tablet user typically use a tablet. I really wish they improve the UX of this app; we are using this every day for work. These UX glitches are not easily ignored.

- Awesome... but better notification handling is needed

Love the app. It’s awesome. Works great across multiple platforms with great features... but... The notifications on mobile can get pretty overwhelming. Particularly when you’re not using the device. For example when your IM’ing from desktop you still get EVERY notification on your phone. You can sleep the phone notifications but you then need to remember to re-enable them. General notification handling could be improved for message flood conditions too. I am part of several larger organisation group chats. When there are multiple people discussing in the thread there can be dozens of notifications in short succession. An implementation similar to FBMessenger would be great - you get a sound and pop up for the first one and then any notifications comin in short succession (say within 30s-1minute since the last notification) are delivered quietly.

- Great app for business

The phone is a great tool for ensuring you can still access your meetings and collaborate effectively when you’re away from your desk. However one improvement I would like to see is the ability to access the chat functionality while also on a teams call. Currently if you’re on a call there’s no ability to read or respond to chats in teams.

- MUST READ OR ELSE

Ever since my brother turned 4 (he is seven now, a trouble maker) he was an idiot and an extremely annoying person. I am embarrassed to be related to him. I have been using teams for work, meetings, etc. Suddenly, I saw a brand new chat and it’s my annoying brother. I tried my very best to delete the chat but it ended up having my best friend with the most annoying brother in the universe. You must allow us to delete and block other people in chats. DO IT OR YOU WILL BE ONE OF MY SIBLINGS!!! By Unknown grade 5 student from Australia, Queensland, Brisbane, Rochdale, Redeemer Lutheran College (school).

- What I have been waiting for

For about four years I have been looking for a collaboration system to get away from the burden and inefficiencies of email. I have been using Whatsapp for work projects but then I was introduced to TEAMS! So well thought out, adaptive and easy to use. The desktop, iPhone & iPad layout are all user friendly. Our organisation has only been using it for four weeks but it is already streamlining workflow, response times are shortened and there is improved engagement amongst project members. Well done Microsoft.

- Great but needs couple of improvements

The calendar section needs to be able to show old calendar appointments. That would have be having to switch to Outlook. Another issue is how when I use my phone for a call, it massively zooms in on my face so the person on a PC on the other end of the call gets a closeup. This happens to everyone I know. It needs to be more mobile friendly and out or have a visible on-screen guide on how far away the phone should rest so other call participants aren’t talking to a nose.

- Doesn’t support MFA & Azure conditional access policy well

I have a situation that my Teams client on iOs14 kept getting blocked by azure conditional access policy that requires both MFA and limited access to Teams service and its dependencies EXO, SPO, Skype4B. The login failed to pass the conditional access policies because the Teams-T4L application only recognised single factor authentication and got blocked by MFA requirements at Microsoft Teams Login Service. Meanwhile on the same phone using Safari browser I can connect to Teams web app successfully. Way to go!

- Revolutionised our Organisation

Thank goodness we moved to Teams about 9 months before COVID! Our levels of document collaboration and use of video chat tied into our filing and messaging has been life changing for the business. The more we rely on it the more we need better training and structure to our use however as things can get lost (documents in particular) between Chat and Files - this is about how you use it not a flaw in Teams itself

- It’s ok for small meetings, HOWEVER...

...trying to run larger meetings, you can’t (choose to) see more than FOUR participants! Checking chat groups/microsoft forums re this problem, which has been brought up many times over the last year, NOTHING but vague promises have eventuated. Another thing, some participants don’t want to use their cam due to data limitations, and prefer to have a profile picture. Should be easy to do? FORGET IT! 1. Tried to upload a profile picture, only to be told it’s the wrong format, try again. Tried jpeg, bmp, png, gif, small or largish - NOTHING! 2. No guide as to what went wrong or what format, size to use - NOTHING! For a company flogging a ‘communication’ app, your communication skills fall very short of the mark - FAIL! We’ve tried to run modestly sized meetings with 10-30 participants for work. Nobody’s been happy with the experience. So it looks we’ll be dumping it. Time to move on... PS Skype (another Microsoft takeover that went downhill) has the same problems

- Switching devices

This app keeps my day on track when I’m away from my pc a lot. Quick access to calendar or chats is easy. There’s a bug when you switch devices, the video doesn’t show to your caller but you can see that it is on. Clicking video on and off, changing device settings doesn’t fix it. You have to hang up and call again.

- Needs to be updated with meetings functionality

With teams replacing the Skype for Business app on the desktop, this app needs to be updated with the appropriate functionality. Right now, if I switch over to using only teams on my desktop I end up receiving all my notifications on my phone with Skype for Business. I can’t delete Skype for business because the teams iOS app has no functionality to join meetings.

- Flexible Teams

If you delve into Teams’ advanced features, you quickly discover a huge range of useful add-ins that let you do just about anything from within the Teams UI. It’s almost an entire operating system specifically aimed at collaboration with your colleagues. And the best bit is my emails have dropped from hundreds to tens per day as well. It is taking over from Excel as my all time favourite piece of software, and I’ve been using Excel since 1996.

- Swift and smooth experience

MTeams is so easy to use. It’s amazing how many functionalities are accessible to a user at the same time and how easy one can navigate through. I used Teams for my job and can connect to my team from home or my phone. The ability to access files and high level meetings from a single app without connection issues is awesome.

- We love it!

My small team of 5 is quite impressed by the app and the product in general. Meetings, chats, notes, wiki. The only thing we don't have is screen sharing which I hope is in the pipeline. We were never keen on signing up to another collaboration software because. HipChat was ok but not good enough for us. Never tried Slack and probably won't ever have to now that this is making our work lives so much easier. 4.5 stars because there's no screen sharing yet. Otherwise, it's a 5 from me!

- Multiple Accounts - Give Them Back to Us

Guys, WHY did you remove the ability to have multiple managed accounts on the app? It was working perfectly with no issues. One Tuesday morning I woke up and had the notification a number of weeks back that multiple accounts weren’t allowed (anymore, it seems). When you’re working for more than one related client, this makes life very difficult. Please explain why you did this, and WHEN will this decision be reversed.

- Channels issue

The app is great for communicating in channels, however for some reason there’s no option to change an existing public channel into a private channel. This means that you have to recreate a channel that would be private which means all the files on your public channel have to be manually moved over to the new private channel. I think this is really counterproductive and wish they come out with a new update to fix that.

- No microphone setting to allow use on iOS

Video and voice calls not available on iOS 12.4.6 iPhone 6s. Attempting to make a call (voice or video) provides a prompt to settings to allow access to microphone. When pressing the settings button, it takes me to Teams settings and there is no microphone setting which can be changed. In fact there are no settings under Teams settings section. Going another way to microphone settings via iOS settings also shows the app has not even requested microphone use. Therefore the app is essentially just a texting platform, which is useless. Tired of being R&D testers for large corps.

- Basic things missing

I’ve been inspired to write this 2 star review because there are just some hair-pulling rage inducing features that should be simple and easy that don’t seem to be available - in my case, the ability to delete or rename a folder. It’s things like this that make me think - is it me? Am I just missing some big and obvious button? But the internet is devoid of answers other than “log in on your browser” - and if that is the best solution than why bother with the app in the first place? Below average.

- Amazing

I do online school right now because I have lockdown in australia central coast I’m 8 years old and I think this is a great way to communicate with my teachers and friends ok I need to say if I didn’t have teams I would not have been able to find my work and I don’t have to be online all day I just look at my work and do it. You should get teams and it is free

- Need notification on multiple devices

If you run TEAMS on multiple devices of yours, as soon as the first one get the notification message, other devices won’t show you the notification message assuming you have seen it already on your first device. Well, that’s not desired because I am not always in front of my laptop but I do always carry my phone with myself. Please broadcast notification messages to all devices. Or at least give the option to users to choose this feature or not.

- Multiple organisations supported

Unlike the desktop app you can have multiple organisations which all receive push notifications and calls. The desktop developers seem adamant on torturing consultants who work with multiple companies because you have to sign out and back in each time.

- Zoom wins on video meetings!

I am really enjoying Teams having just set it up for our company. My one great disappointment is that you can only see 4 people on a group video. It is really difficult to read the mood of the meeting when you can't see everyone. This is where Zoom has a huge advantage in being able to see multiple people on one screen and everyone in the meeting by swiping through the screens. Unless this is addressed soon we will have to use Zoom for our team meetings.

- Great app but battery hungry!

This app is really good for collaborating with my team, in and out of the office. A major complaint is that it consumes a lot of battery, even when I’m not using it. An example: my iPad has teams installed but I leave it at home whilst I’m out at work. I would find that the battery has drained overtime by quite a lot and I’d notice that Teams had consisted of 80% of that battery usage. Microsoft, I urge you to fix this issue as this app is great but this really needs to be better optimised for mobile devices.

- File access needed on App

I love the way Teams brings the many groups I work with, right to my desk, and even my pocket! It would also be good to access files on the App, so I can review video recordings of meetings when away from the office. It would also be great to have access to just the audio from video files, saving on data while still accessing the audio side of messages. :)

- Updates

In our teams chat, we update and share content, but when there’s new updates to posts, I don’t like how it shifts to the bottom, I’ve mixed up my roster a few times (mostly my fault) but would make it easier if what is posted stays where it had been originally posted. Hope that makes sense ☺️ Besides that, it is for the most part a great app and I would recommend.

- WHAT KIDS LIKE AND DON’T LIKE

I like this app but there is 1 problem which is that teachers can mute students and that shouldn’t be aloud because it is limiting our ability’s to talk and it isn’t fair us student should be able to speak to each other and for the record NO ONE IN MY CLASS LIKES IT DO YOU HEAR ME OR IN THIS CASE READ ME NO ONE YES THAT’S RIGHT NOOOOOOOO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But other wise it’s not bad but maybe if you n are taking suggestions i have 2: 1.get rid of the mute thing And 2.maybe add something fun for kids to do like a game

- Still buggy with iPhone but not bad

Developers need to acknowledge that there are still issues joining a meeting set up and active on a laptop/desktop interface for audio only via iPhone. Many times my colleagues and I connect only to hear silence. We have reported this through multiple channels to no avail... we have also experienced this problem outside our work IT environment, so we suspect it is an app problem and not on our side.

- CPO

MS Teams is probably one of the smartest / user friendly transforming business tools I’ve used. Only started with MS Teams 8 days ago. I’m working remotely as is the entire world, and the level of connection I’m experiencing is unbelievable. I’ve had no training, we had to implement immediately and we were up and running in a day. Thank you! I really mean it Thank you!

- Good but could be great

Just started using this through work. Have the phone app and windows App. Have no major complaints. I’d like to see the ability to add custom backgrounds in video conferences and also turn off the auto away status. I’d really like to set my own status and keep it. Also when my laptop is closed and opened again, it seems to disconnect and will not reconnect until I open the window and let it load.

- Desktop Functionality missing on iPad

The biggest frustration with teams is that it does not have full desk top functionality when using an iPad. The other big disappointment is that you can never trust the formatting of a document written in a browser version of word. It always seems to stuff up. I am a big fan of cloud based and team based computing, I just cross my fingers they will improve the functionality on the iPad.

- Awesome!

This app is great! I have used it for school and it works really well. The loading is usually very fast and it doesn’t glitch a lot. Many features are there. The original one was really lousy, but this new one can let you see 9 or every person and allows you to raise your hand. This app is highly recommended.

- Mobile better than desktop but lacks some integration

Pretty good app. BUT Some basic features on mobile app aren’t available on desktop, like ability to reply to a specific message and ability to see when someone was ‘last seen’. Also often can’t share files from other apps via Teams and can’t switch calls between phone and laptop easily unless it’s in a scheduled meeting.

- How Teams Meeting works for us

While we had Teams on our system prior to Co-Vid, we only utilised it for National catch ups. Since WFM inCo-Vid, we utilise it throughout our business internally over telephoning. Our non-centralised team members report they feel closer to the team and more part of it then when we worked in the office. It’s easily accessible and ensures that all team members are work ready in a WFM situation.

- No sign out option and teams calls are in phone call logs

I have my teams work account on my personal iPhone as a backup however I have just deleted the app as the latest update has removed the sign out option under my profile picture and my teams calls are displayed with my iPhone call log and there is no option to disable this. WFH personal and work line is blurred and this app is not helpful when getting teams calls after hours.

- Screen layout

Very happy with this app! Few things Teams could improve: - The layout of the people who appear in the screen, we should be able to choose the ones or see them all, - Connect team with Microsoft forms, so people could answer questions instantaneously while during presentation

- Delete former employee from Teams

Whilst I enjoy teams a great deal trying to delete a former employee is nothing short of an admin nightmare. I can’t believe Microsoft has made this such a hazardous journey. Endless loops of password resetting, reset denials and no one to assist other than a robot. Glad MS is catching up to Google but still have a long way to go.

- Calendar

I started using the Teams app last year when work sent us home. I found it was good to join meetings from my phone using the calandra function rather than my computer. Now I’m back in the office I haven’t used the App as much but when I have returned to the Apo i have found that after a few updates the calendar on the app doesn’t have my meetings and I can’t join on the phone anymore. I’ve still got all the Teams stuff I don’t want but don’t have the only Teams function I did use, so it’s useless for me. One star is generous

- HR

- angry

this app doesn’t work for online school. should be off the app store

- 🤢🤢

this app is what triggers my breakdowns before class.

- This app doesn't let me sign in.

I can't even enter my password on the app but I use it fine on my laptop. Everytime I try to log on, it says sign-on error. I've tried deleted and reinstalling many times

- This app sucks

Lots of bugs would not recommend

- It upsets me

Please delete this app, for the love of gods.

- Keeps crashing on opening after most recent update

Worked fine until recently. Now crashes seconds after opening when accessing an account.

- Assignments feature 4/5

This is a great app for online schooling. My only issue is that the assignments feature on mobile is a little hard to use, if I wanted to go through all my teams assignments to see if there are any more I need to do before I start my weekend, I have to pick each team one by one, going back to the assignments menu each time. And worse, if a teacher hasn’t even assigned anything since they started the team, I get the ‘if your teacher makes any assignments they will be posted here’ page, and from there I need to restart the app in order to look at my other assignments. I would love to be about to swipe left and right to go to my next team’s assignments, and clicking Next after selecting a team to view assignments for seems like a useless extra step. And I definitely don’t want to be barred from viewing other assignments just because I looked at a team who hasn’t set up assignments yet. Please clean up the assignments tab and make it a bit more user friendly!

- 🧑🏾‍🦲

im bald

- Bad

Actually bad

- Great and useful

Great during this pandemic. For online classes. <3

- Sucks so much

It gives us work

- Can’t start video conference from the app

I see no way to initiate a video conference with my team from the iOS app. This is a major shortfall and, consequently, gives it a failing grade. Rectify this issue and I’ll revise my review to an improved rating.

- Keep crashing

My app keeps crashing after the latest update. Please fix

- such a baddie app✨🧚🏻‍♀️ without the die

i’m tryna post my work and it glitches n deletes it all im almost failing french now 🧚🏻‍♀️✨ words cant describe this app🥰❤️ numbers can tho✨🥺 0/10🥰

- 🤩

I hate school 🥰😍😍

- Not impressed.

Had to use this for online school for almost the entirety of 2020-2021. Calls are glitchy, you get kicked out often, somehow there’s a handful of features that were simply missing half the time I used the app, such as something as simple as being able to talk in the chat rooms. Me and my classmates have had constant microphone/camera problems throughout our meetings. You get a notification for every single message you get instead of every few which is extremely infuriating when you need the notifications on for your classes. I’ve also had the issue where it simply hasn’t let me log in for up to an hour, and I’ve missed classes because of it. Overall, I really dislike it.

- Gros problème à régler

J’aimais beaucoup cette application mais je commence vraiment à la détester pour la simple raison qu’on ne peut pas bloquer les gens dessus. J’arrête pas de me faire harcelé et je ne peut pas bloquer les gens qui me font sa. Si seulement vous pouvez mettre une mise à jour où on pourrais bloquer les gens...

- Absolute worst “enterprise” chat system

Im forced to use teams due to some of our enterprise clients and it has been the worst experience. I constantly lose access to my account, always “oops something went wrong,” endless cycles of sending codes to email and 2FA with authenticator apps to then just have it blow up and go “oops” again. There seems to be multiple accounts created with my exact email and the app doesnt understand how to handle it. Pulling all my clients into a shared slack channel. Never touching this embarrassment of an “enterprise” system again

- Recently notifications are incorrect

Notifications aren’t correctly showing up, I have 25 showing as the badge icon but I open up the app and only have one notification. Please fix

- No

I ✨personally✨ hate this app and it cause me to 💗break down💗

- No

I hate school and this makes it harder 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😩😩😩😍😩😩🥵🥵🥵🥵🤪🤪🤪🤪😜😜😜

- terrible

✨10/10 would NOT recommend✨

- Problem with notifications

Lately i see multiple notifications over the app , example 12, while i only have 1 new notification. If i open the app those 12 notices go away. Then i get a new message and again the notification count is higher than the 1.

- ewww school app make me do work 😭😭😭😭😭

i hate this app it makes me have to learn about stuff when i could just watch tiktok all day it completely useless and i don’t think we should do school anymore

- makes my blood boil

i’m stressed bc of this app 💁🏼‍♀️✨

- caused my depression 😍😍😍

this😻app❌needs🥰to😊get😡banned😍

- Delete chats

Overall is a great app but I would be great to be able to delete chats, the ones that you are not longer using. I don’t like seeing a huge list of chats where I am no longer participating, and I don’t like hiding them.

- Chat

Where is the damn chat section!?!

- Not impressed

Joined a meeting and as the meeting started we were dropped and could not get back in no matter how many tries we made. Not for me thanks. Yeah Google Meet. Too many people is my guess!

- Calls

Sometimes I can’t join call meetings. It doesn’t appear in my channel.

- Terrible

This app is terrible, 1/5 stars, crashes multiple times, and sometimes when people are sharing their screen it doesn’t show for multiple people.

- Crashes

App keeps crashing once I turn meeting on. Screen goes ⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️ and I miss half my class

- laggy and privacy issues

this app is extremely laggy and hard to use. also, sometimes when i join a meeting, i notice that it turns on my mic and camera without me giving any input and even after i disabled the camera permissions it constantly spams asking for permission to use the camera

- Correction

Vous devriez faire des corrections tellement il y a de bogue j ne peux même pas télécharger l'appli c pas fort

- if I could give this app a lower rating I would

dude the amount of times I got kicked out of my online classes was actually ridiculous. Sometimes I couldn’t log in so my parents would get calls saying I wasn’t in class but it was the damn app that wouldn’t let me join. This app pushes my buttons sm I can’t stand it.

- Why is a phone number required?

There is no justifiable reason that an email address shouldn’t suffice. Plus, young kids don’t have phones.

- onlineschool bad

i hate this

- Fix the notification badges

Every time I get a notification, the badge count shows a large number of notifications which is always inaccurate. Additionally, the badge does not go away if I acknowledge the message, etc. from another device. Please fix this.

- Worst app I’ve ever seen with my eyes

Worst app that ever exist

- This is trash

This is so horrible now we can’t even text anyone but the group chat so trash just delegated the app just stop this is trash we don’t even get to see our friends trash

- 1 étoile

Les profs peuvent espionner les appelle et les conversations

- No

Why did you make this. Now my school only tells me that the zoom link is on teams. I’ve tried to be nice but this app sucks

- Sorry

I don’t like school the app is fine I just don’t want to do school work

- Lags on mobile app

Mobile app does not always work smoothly, frequently crashes, even during meetings at times.

- Eww

Id rather get my nose slamed by a car door

- no

this app is amazingly terrible 💕

- No possibility to see someone’s status message

Make it convenient
