Kotlin Program to Convert Milliseconds to Minutes and Seconds

In the above program, you'll learn to convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds individually, and together in Kotlin.

Example 1: Convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds individually

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit

fun main(args: Array<String>) {

    val milliseconds: Long = 1000000

    // long minutes = (milliseconds / 1000) / 60;
    val minutes = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toMinutes(milliseconds)

    // long seconds = (milliseconds / 1000);
    val seconds = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toSeconds(milliseconds)

    println("$milliseconds Milliseconds = $minutes minutes")
    println("Or")
    println("$milliseconds Milliseconds = $seconds seconds")
}

When you run the program, the output will be:

1000000 Milliseconds = 16 minutes
Or
1000000 Milliseconds = 1000 seconds

In the above program, we've converted given milliseconds to minutes using toMinutes() method. Likewise, we used toSeconds() method to convert it to seconds.

We can also use basic math to convert it to minutes and seconds.

Seconds = Milliseconds / 1000

while minutes is

Minutes = Seconds / 60
or
Minutes = (Milliseconds / 1000) / 60

Example 2: Convert Milliseconds to Minutes and Seconds

fun main(args: Array<String>) {

    val milliseconds: Long = 1000000

    val minutes = milliseconds / 1000 / 60
    val seconds = milliseconds / 1000 % 60

    println("$milliseconds Milliseconds = $minutes minutes and $seconds seconds.")
}

When you run the program, the output will be:

1000000 Milliseconds = 16 minutes and 40 seconds.

In the above program, we've used formula:

Minutes = (Milliseconds / 1000) / 60
And
Remaining Seconds = (Milliseconds / 1000) % 60

First, we calculate the minutes by simply dividing it to seconds and then to minutes by dividing it with 60.

Then, we calculate the remaining seconds by dividing it to seconds and getting the remainder when divided by 60.

Here's the equivalent Java code: Java program to convert milliseconds to minutes and seconds.
