How to reduce lag in Teams

A Fix for Lagging in Microsoft Teams

A lot of users also experience lagging while using Microsoft Teams. While typing in messages in the chat, or while switching from one tab in Microsoft Teams to other, there is a boat-load of lagging problems in Microsoft Teams. Where there is no fix for memory and CPU usage on the user end, there is something that you can do to minimize lag.

Turning off the read-receipts in Microsoft Teams has reportedly reduced lagging drastically. If it’s something you can live without, it’s definitely worth a try! To turn off read-receipts, click on the ‘Profile’ icon on the Title Bar and go to the ‘Settings’.


Then, go to ‘Privacy’ from the navigation menu on the left and turn off the toggle for ‘Read Receipts’.

Turning off Read Receipts not only reduces lagging but also fixes the problem of Microsoft Teams taking up too much time at startup to some extent.
