 # How To Convert Milliseconds To Minutes And Seconds In JavaScript To convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds in JavaScript, we can use two methods: Creating a function with Math.floor() and toFixed() method, or use the getMinutes() and getSeconds() method. Check out the details below to get more information.

## Convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds in JavaScript

### Create the function with Math.floor() and toFixed() method

To convert miliseconds to minutes and seconds in Javascript, we can easily create a function to do it by using the Math.floor() method and toFixed() method.

#### The toFixed() method

Syntax:

toFixed(x)

Parameter:

• x: Number of decimals. Default is 0.

Return value: The representation of a number with (Or without) decimals.

#### The Math.floor() method

Syntax:

Math.floor(x)

Parameter:

• x: A number.

Return value: The nearest integer to the number. Rounding DOWN.

Example:

In this example, we will create a toMinutesAndSeconds function that gets the number of minutes by rounding millis divided by 60000 via the Math.floor() method. Get seconds by using millis mod 60000, then, divide 1000 and rounding by using toFixed().

function toMinutesAndSeconds(millis) {
// Math.floor() method to rounding down to minutes
var minutes = Math.floor(millis / 60000);

// toFixed() method to rounding to seconds
var seconds = ((millis % 60000) / 1000).toFixed(0);

return minutes + ":" + (seconds < 10 ? '0' : '') + seconds;
}

console.log("After converting 666000 miliseconds to minutes and seconds: " + toMinutesAndSeconds(666000))  // "11:06"
console.log("After converting 298999 miliseconds to minutes and seconds: " + toMinutesAndSeconds(298999)) // "4:59"

Output

After converting 666000 miliseconds to minutes and seconds:
11:06
After converting 298999 miliseconds to minutes and seconds:
4:59

### Use the getMinutes() and getSeconds() method

The other simple way to convert miliseconds to minutes and seconds is use the getMinutes() method and getSeconds() method.

#### The getMinutes() method

Syntax:

getMinutes()

Parameter: None.

Return value: The minutes of the date.

#### The getSeconds() method

Syntax:

getSeconds()

Parameter: None.

Return value: The seconds of the date.

Example:

const date1 = new Date(298999);
minutes = date1.getMinutes();
seconds = date1.getSeconds();
console.log("After converting 298999 miliseconds to minutes and seconds: " + minutes + ":" + seconds);

const date2 = new Date(666000);
minutes = date2.getMinutes();
seconds = date2.getSeconds();
console.log("After converting 666000 miliseconds to minutes and seconds: " + minutes + ":" + seconds);

Output

After converting 298999 milliseconds to minutes and seconds:
4:58
After converting 666000 milliseconds to minutes and seconds:
11:6
