Google Timer is a very handy feature that can be used anywhere by anyone. But, many users have taken to Twitter to ask where the feature is gone or what happened to it as they aren’t able to see it.

Google’s feature comes with a stopwatch, alarm and countdown to help make our lives easier. It also displays a live clock of your time zone.

But, the timer is not appearing for some users in 2022., and users are far from happy.

Google Timer is missing for users

Today (July 18), Google Timer has just disappeared!

Twitter saw a number of posts related to the timer as many users just can’t find it.

While some have noted that the feature appears to be disabled, others are wondering if Google has gotten rid of it for good.

The option that usually appears on the top-right section of Google results has just disappeared for some users.

At the time of writing, Google hasn’t made any announcements confirming that they’ve got rid of the timer. So, it could just be a temporary glitch.

Users want to know what happened to the feature

Here’s how a few users have reacted to the missing feature:


Another user posted: I tweeted this a while ago and I’m gonna say it again: The google timer function is legitimately gone. Where is it?

“Did Google’s online timer just go away?” tweeted another user.

Another added: “You’re kidding me. They disabled Google’s countdown timer feature AGAIN?”

“Google removed the stopwatch and timer features. Why??” questioned another.
