    Anybody else seeing this? All of my colleagues have this issue with Apple Messages app. During refresh it just goes bananas. Been going on for a while. What gives!

    If there is any "animated message" (e.g. heart beat from Apple Watch), delete them should stop the abnormal high CPU usage.

    I just quit and reloaded the Messages app, it spiked to 92% or so for a second or so then falls back to near-zero %.

    So you are refreshing and the cpu spikes? For how long?

    Nobody has an Apple Watch

    It’s more like when the Mac is off/sleep then gets woken back up and has to catch back up. Never happens when already running smoothly.

    I don't understand, a few seconds CPU when there is work to be done then it settles back to trivial/normal is expected behaviour - how is it a problem let alone "insane"???

    Sorry if this wasn’t clear - it doesn’t go away much of the time. Requires a restart or force quit of processes. I’d call it intermittent - maybe 1/5 times and seems to occur more when in low bandwidth though have seen it in high.

    Ah no idea, I haven't seen that. Judging by the lack of other replies it may not be too common.
