Take control of your (virtual) space with Miro’s improved timer plugin! Set your timer during group activities to keep everyone on track and play background music to get people in the right mindset.  

The improved timer allows you to:

  • Time box an activity such as brainstorming or voting
  • Pause the timer when needed 
  • Add time to the timer with the click of a button 
  • Choose royalty free background tunes 

The new timer plugin is available on Education, Team, Consultant, Business, and Enterprise plan.

I have shared this in a few other posts, but felt it was relevant here too.

I put together this unofficial  Spotify playlist of Miro Timer Music - well, 5/6 songs :wink:

Miro Timer Music / Song / Artist

  1. Sunshine jam / Downtown / Soul Shifters
  2. Uptempo funk / Business or Pleasure / Avocado Junkie
  3. Smooth groove / Seaside Samba / King Flamingo
  4. Calm flow / ? / ?
  5. Chill beats / Quadricolor / Isaac Joel 
  6. Cosmic vibe / Fading Light / Holiday On The Moon

Spotify playlist

Calm flow is A Day Without Rain by Stephen Keech:

It doesn’t appear to be on Spotify, so I can’t add it to my playlist.

@Patrick Miles - I created a Wish List post from your reply because it is a great idea and I agree 100%!

Hi all, the timer doesn't work for me. It is only “minimalized” version for me now. We used a timer before as a team and now suddenly it doesn't work for me, but it works for other team members. What may be the problem?

@Diana Deriazhna - I just tested the timer and it is working as expected for me (Windows 11 64-bit via Chrome).

Can you ease share screenshots of what you are seeing?

Note: If you are using a browser, try disabling any installed browser extensions -- you can usually accomplish this in one step by signing into Miro through a ln incognito/private browser window. 

Hi @Robert Johnson thank you for your quick response. I needed a fast solution as it heavily affected my online meeting. I’ve deleted and re-installed the App on Windows and it helped.

@Diana Deriazhna - Glad to hear that you got it sorted!

In the future, rather than re-installing the desktop app, you could first try resetting the app data by following these simple and quick steps:

Thanks, @Robert Johnson I saw this article, I have MS App, so I didn’t have these tabs. It was faster to re-install the App than to figure out how to reset its data, as the problem occurred unexpectedly and the meeting was already running.

@Diana Deriazhna - If you have the MS Miro desktop app from miro.com/apps, you can expose the menu bar by pressing the ALT key:

@Diana Deriazhna - Can you share screenshots of what you are seeing? Better yet, a video recording -- Loom is free and easy to use and share.

Thank you, I am now using the browser version and it works fine so far. 

It would be great if the songs would be synchronised with the timer.

If the timer is 5 minutes, we could have a song that finishes at exactly 5 minutes. This will give a very natural feel to the timer.

Sometimes, the song runs out at 4:50, and then a new song starts, right when the timer ends.
