### What Is a "Minutes Ago" Calculator?

This is a simple web utility that helps you calculate what time it was "X" minutes ago (in many time zones). For example, you may want to know what time it was five minutes ago. You can either visit that link or use the form on this page and we will calculate that for you. Performing "time math" in your head is difficult. For example, it is challenging to "wrap around" to calculate how long ago something was. What I mean by that is that it's tricky to know what time it was seven minutes ago when it is 3 o-clock in the morning. You have to "wrap around" back to the previous day to find that answer, and it's not straightforward to calculate in your head. For problems like that, and all others, use our handy tool!
