Does Zoom have meeting timers?


You can display timers in a meeting or webinar. The Meeting Duration timer shows how much elapsed since you joined the meeting, while the Time Remaining timer shows how much time remains, based on the meeting's scheduled duration. 

Display Timers

  1. Sign in to the Zoom desktop client.
  2. Click your profile picture and then click Settings.
  3. On the General tab, check the Show meeting timers (or Show my meeting duration for older versions)

After this setting is enabled, each time you start or join a meeting or webinar, the timers will appear in the upper right corner of the meeting display. Note: if you are sharing your screen, the timers appear below the share screen controls.

  • If you start an unscheduled meeting, the timer defaults to the Meeting Duration timer, and shows how much time has elapsed since each participant joined the meeting.
    • Note: the clock shows a different value for each meeting participant, depending on when they joined.
  • If you start a scheduled meeting, the meeting timer will default to the Time Remaining timer, which shows how much time is left of the scheduled duration. 

Change timers

You can change to the other type of timer during a meeting, by doing the following:

  1. Click the down arrow icon next to the icon. 
  2. Select Time Remaining or Meeting Duration
