Teams is designed to give the best audio, video and content sharing experience regardless of your network conditions. That said, when bandwidth is insufficient, Teams prioritizes audio quality over video quality.


Bandwidth (down/up)Scenarios
1Mbps / 500kbpsGroup Video calling
*2Mbps / 1MbpsHD Group video calling (540p videos on 1080p screen)

NOTE: Minimum requirements for taking the test. If more than one candidate shares the link during the exam, the total required bandwidth (down/up) is the number of candidates multiplied by minimum requirement.
