Microsoft has created a native version of its Microsoft Teams client for Macs with M1 or M2 chips. The software giant has developed a native Apple Silicon version of Microsoft Teams that should include performance benefits for Mac users running the latest M1 or M2 chips, and it will be rolled out in the coming months.

“For Mac users, this represents a significant performance boost, ensuring efficient use of device resources and an optimized Teams experience, even when using multiple high-resolution monitors during calls or meetings,” says Anupam Pattnaika member of the Microsoft Teams product marketing team, in a blog post.

The existing version of Microsoft Teams runs as a regular app with Apple’s Rosetta 2 emulation, and native support for Teams on Apple Silicon is a much requested feature. While all Teams Mac users will eventually be automatically upgraded to this new app update, the rollout will take place over months rather than days or weeks.

“The publicly available (GA) version of the native Teams app on Mac with Apple silicon will be rolled out to customers incrementally over the coming months,” explains Pattnaik. If you don’t want to wait for the update to reach your computer, there’s been a beta available since a few months.

The native version of Microsoft Teams for Apple Silicon comes nearly two years after Microsoft released the native versions of Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint and OneNote for M1 Macs.
