Are you kidding? The UI is atrocious - in line with the rest of Office products since 2016 and beyond (IMO)
It can't render chat messages nicely - even the triple back-tick text box they nicked from slack for pasting code snippets looks really clunky.
And when someone is screen sharing there's a fucking great big bar in the middle of the screen which obscures the presentation and cannot be moved.
Yet again M$ are but abusing their monopoly to try and crush their competitors using a 'free', bundled mass-rollout of a convenient but totally inferior tool. It's practically 'The Internet' (internet explorer) all over again.
Teams is very buggy at the moment and can't even getting simply things like muting and unmuting the microphone right (been having recent problems with this: come off mute but you're still muted. Sometimes toggling it again will fix, others you have to leave the meeting and start again!)
It's also been very unreliable since the increased demand from everyone suddenly working at home although M$ has apparently now 'scaled it up by 600%'.
In Teams this week, I've had to keep waiting a few minutes and clicking retry to send just simple text chat messages, meanwhile slack (although I admit I only use it for chat) hasn't missed a beat
I had to use Zoom for the first time yesterday for a video conference and that just runs rings around Teams. It was highly polished and worked flawlessly! It was especially impressive that they supply a native Linux client which worked first time without any issues, including flawless video+voice quality and sharing of just a single application window from my Linux desktop.
I'm only using teams by force because it's the 'chosen corporate platform' where I work. I wouldn't choose it. Mind you, I'd also give my right arm to be able to use Thunderbird (plus the awesome Exquilla plug-in for connecting to Outlook Web Access) instead of the utter piece of shit which is Outlook. Seriously! How the hell do the majority of works not scream and pull their hair out at having to use this monstrosity?
So well done Microsoft! Clap clap clap. You've successfully conquered the world again by pushing your half-baked crap to the masses. And a whole new generation of, 'oooh, this new video conferencing thingy is a bit high tech and fancy,' end users will go on to live in blissful ignorance of how much better it can be done :-(
