Timeqube vs Google Time Timer – Differences

Written by Andy

We’ve been asked this question a lot. Now we know for sure. Our customers told us!

How is Timeqube different than Google’s Time Timer?

To make it clear – We love Time Timer as much as we love the idea of timeboxing! But we also think Timeqube has a few powerful features that greatly differentiate it from its competitor.

All the features below are based on feedback from our Customers. 


Google Time Timer

  • the clock face can be seen by some but not all people sitting at a meeting table.
  • It is hard to read from distance
  • Big models that can be seen from distance are very large and heavy
  • it’s not well balanced and frequently falls over
  • Red countdown field is distractive and stressful
  • Some models still use sound


  • is non-invasive and distraction-free
  • it can be clearly seen from any distance (small and big rooms)
  • it can be clearly seen from all angles (all meeting participants)
  • It’s stable on any surface
  • interacting with the device is simple
  • no tick-tock. ever.

Any distance or angle? Show me.

There you go. A public speaker using the Timeqube in a large meeting space. Find the qube!
