Add a count-down timer

It would be neat to have the possibility to show a count-down timer in a meeting that is visible to everyone in the meeting no matter if someone is sharing a screen or not. This would make it easier to follow and agenda and make it transparent to everyone when it's getting close to wrapping up,

Maybe also a possibility to add a configurable warning sound when you're getting close to the end of the count-down, alternatively to "flash" the counter.

    This feature will keep a time check for everyone who is presenting or during any kind of brainstorming sessions.

    Yes, this is an important feature with all the home working. It's creating extra time and effort for people to create their own timers using virtual camera software (which only works with google chrome version of webex and not desktop app) and their own ways of notifying warnings, which don't always have priority. I've had a handful of people in my company request this. More generally, I would like to see webex offer greater virtual camera features to overlay graphics, text, audio, video as well as handy utilities like timers... to customise dynamic virtual backgrounds.
