Teams Mobile


Teams provides a single hub to help you stay connected, get organized and bring balance to your entire life. Easily move between your work and personal account to stay organized throughout the day. Teams notifications might be disabled. There are two ways to fix notifications on your mobile device: one is through settings in Teams, the other is to go to the Settings app on your mobile device. Notifications are disabled by default on iOS devices.

Microsoft Teams is your hub for teamwork, which brings together everything a team needs: chat and threaded conversations, meetings & video conferencing, calling, content collaboration with the power of Microsoft 365 applications, and the ability to create and integrate apps and workflows that your business relies on.

There are three types of log files automatically produced by the client, which can be leveraged to assist in monitoring and troubleshooting Teams:

This article describes the three logs and how they are used.

For information about troubleshooting specific issues, see: Teams Troubleshooting. For information about how to contact support, see Get support.

When creating a support request with Microsoft Support, the support engineer will require the debug logs. Having the debug logs on hand before creating the support request will allow Microsoft to quickly start troubleshooting the problem. Media or Desktop logs are only required if requested by Microsoft.


In this article, the term Debug logs refers to the logs that are used for troubleshooting. However, the files that are generated for these logs will contain the term diagnostic logs in their names.

The following table outlines the various clients and their associated logs. Log files are stored in locations specific to the client and operating system.


For a complete list of supported operating systems and browsers, see Get clients for Microsoft Teams.

Debug logs

These are the most common logs and are required for all Microsoft support cases. Debug logs are produced by the Windows and Mac desktop clients, as well as by browser-based clients. The logs are text based and are read from the bottom-up. They can be read using any text-based editor, and new logs are created when logging into the client.

Debug logs show the following data flows:

  • Login

  • Connection requests to middle-tier services

  • Call/conversation

The debug logs are produced using the following OS-specific methods:

  • Windows:

    Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + 1

  • Mac OSX:

    Keyboard shortcut: Option + Command + Shift+1

  • Linux:

    Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Shift + 1

The debug logs are automatically downloaded to the following folders:

  • Windows: %userprofile%Downloads

  • Mac OSX: ~/Downloads

  • Linux: ~/Downloads

  • Browser: You will be prompted to save the debug log to default save location

Media logs

Media logs contain diagnostic data about audio, video, and screen sharing in Teams meetings. They are required for support cases that are linked to call-related issues.

Media logging is turned off by default. To log diagnostic data for Teams meetings, users must turn on the option in the Teams client. Go to Settings > General, select the Enable logging for meeting diagnostics (requires restarting Teams) check box, restart Teams, and reproduce the issue.

The following table outlines the media log locations. When you send the log files to Microsoft support, please verify the timestamp of the log files to ensure the logs cover the time frame when you reproduced the issue.

Mac OSX~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/media-stack/*.blog
~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/skylib/*.blog
Linux~/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft Teams/media-stack/*.blog
~/.config/Microsoft/Microsoft Teams/skylib/*.blog

Here's a list of the log files that are generated and the information they contain.

Log file nameDescription
Teams.msrtc-0-s1039525249.blogContains information related to the media stack. This includes channel status such as resolution, decoders and encoders used, and the number of frames sent and received, and camera and video-based screen sharing (VBSS) session status.
rtmcontrol.msrtc-0-2415069487.blogRecords information related to remote control actions, such as the time stamp when control is given, and mouse pointer information.
Teams_MediaStackETW-2-U-xr-U.etlRecords media stack trace events.
Debug-0-s2790420889.blogContains information related to the media agent, including rendering quality.
tscalling-0-2061129496.blogRecords events in the ts-calling API.

Desktop logs

Teams mobile apps

Desktop logs, also known as bootstrapper logs, contain log data that occurs between the desktop client and the browser. Like media logs, these logs are only needed if requested by Microsoft. The logs are text based and can be read using any text-based editor in a top-down format.

Browser trace

For some categories of errors, Microsoft Support might require you to collect a browser trace. This information can provide important details about the state of the Teams client when the error occurs.

Before you start the browser trace, make sure that you’re signed in to Teams. It's important to do this before you start the trace so that the trace doesn't contain sensitive sign-in information.

After you’re signed in, select one of the following links, as appropriate for your browser, and follow the provided steps.
