Microsoft to release Teams for Apple silicon

Microsoft will soon start rolling out a version of Teams tailored for Macs running Apple silicon to use less CPU power and improve the performance of the collaboration software.

Microsoft plans to release Teams for Apple’s custom-designed ARM processors over the coming months. Teams, programmed initially for Intel-based Macs, will perform better and be less taxing on system resources than the current version, Microsoft said this week.

Intel Mac users will not be left out, though. The new software uses Apple’s universal binary format to run natively on Intel and Apple silicon computers.
