Joe, I check the build v1.3 on Inari. If we set a timer and close clock app in recent app, the timer won't notify user in time. Even if I launch clock app, there is no any message for overdue timer. I guess it's an expected result.

Hi Marcus, is it an expected behaviour for build v1.3? Thanks.

Leaving qawanted to see behavior on 1.3 Buri for comparison.

This is expected behavior in 1.3. Bug 898354 tracked an overhaul of the Timer feature which enabled background notification and all sorts of other features which make the Timer actually useful, however it did not land in time for 1.3.
