Microsoft has optimized its Teams software for Macs with M1 or M2 CPUs by developing an Apple Silicon version. Nearly two years after Apple first unveiled its first silicon-powered M1 devices, the company has released an upgraded version.
According to The Verge, the existing version of Microsoft Teams has been running as a regular program under the guise of an Apple Rosetta 2 emulator. Reports have stated that Apple Silicon’s native teams’ support has been in high demand.
Microsoft said that the Teams app on Mac with Apple hardware is being delivered out to clients in increments over the next several weeks. Eventually, the new version will be available to all Mac users, according to the manufacturer’s statement. According to Microsoft’s announcement, Mac users will see a significant improvement in performance.
According to reports, the native version of Teams was released approximately two years after the native versions of Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote for M1 Macs were made available to the public.
