This article explains how to turn “Show meeting timers” on or off in the Zoom app on Windows 11.
Zoom is a video conferencing and online meeting platform that allows users to connect remotely. It offers Video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, and recording features.
There are many settings one can configure in the Zoom app on Windows. Users can download and install, start Zoom automatically when Windows starts, use dual monitors, turn Video and audio on or off screen lock, mute microphone when joining meetings, change where to save meeting recordings, turn message preview on or off, turn chat notifications on or off, turn new message sound on or off, change skin tone for emojis, turn do not disturb on or off, and more.
When you use Zoom, you can display meeting timers for all your meetings to let folks know how long a meeting has been in session and when to end or stop it.
Turning meeting timers on or off in Zoom can be useful for different scenarios. For instance, if you are conducting a meeting and want to keep track of the time, you can turn on the meeting timer to monitor the meeting duration.
On the other hand, if you don’t want to be bothered by the timer during a meeting, you can turn it off to avoid distractions.
