- Set up the time with the quick preset buttons or manually
- Then you are ready to click START and make re that the display for others is also ON
- Note that you must have your video on for this to work
- Plus, you can PAUSE the timer
- You can RESUME after you have paused
- Finally, a buzzer sound will play when time is up, and then you can turn off the Display Timer for Others.
- The top right of the app panel, with the timer, will show you: 3 dots for pop out, refresh or close, invite others & share app screen options.
