Anupam Pattnaik, who owns the Microsoft Teams 2.0 product, recently spoke on Petri’s UnplugIT podcast. He said that by the end of 2023, Teams 2.0 will be the default processing application on Win10 and Win11 platforms. Currently, Teams 2.0 is still the default processing application on Win10 and Win11 platforms because it is not yet complete and does not have all the features. However, this will change by the end of this year. We plan to release a preview version of Teams 2.0 to Mac, VDI, and web users by the end of this year and then to other customer groups, like education and government.
The new version of Teams is faster than the current one. It installs three times faster, starts up two times faster, and switches between chats and channels 1.7 times faster. Joining meetings should also be two times faster. It uses 50% less memory resources and takes up 70% less disk space.
