Method 2: Manual Cache Clearing

  1. As this issue seems to be due to cache, we will clear the application cache.
  2. Before proceeding further, sign-out of Teams application and close Outlook application.
  3. Microsoft stores Teams application cache in C drive inside users folder. Use the below path to navigate to Teams cache location.
    C:\Users\<your user id> \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams
    Teams Cache location
  4. Once you are in the folder, select everything and delete. But, if you are unwilling to delete, you can cut everything and paste them in a separate location as backup.
  5. Verify the folder is empty after removing the cache files.
  6. Next, (a quick restart is better but not a mandatory thing) sign-in to Teams application and check Teams chat is visible now.
