During Zoom meetings, users can open the application and view the timer in the participant’s video using the zoomapp:inmeeting scope. The app does not pass on any personal data to third parties.

  • setVirtualForeground – The timer can be demonstrated to meeting participants by adding an image to the foreground of their video to provide a visual representation of the timer.
  • removeVirtualForeground – A method that allows you to remove an image from the foreground of the user’s video that was set from the user’s video using setVirtualForeground.
  • onMyMediaChange – The app will receive notifications when a user’s video settings are changed, e.g. B. when the user enables or disables video and when the user mutes or unmutes the sound.
  • Note: A request for this event is made by the app to ensure the clock is displayed with the correct dimensions and aspect ratio in relation to the user’s video stream.
