Replace a few seconds ago with just now in moment.js

How to remove few seconds ago and show just now in moment.js .The moment.js shows a few seconds ago ,I want to do some customization ,to show only just now upto 1 minute.But in other cases like two minutes ago I want to show 2 minutes ago.

Example 0-59 seconds just now

import "./styles.css";
import { useEffect } from "react";
import moment from "moment";
export default function App() {
  moment.updateLocale("en", {
    relativeTime: {
      future: "in %s",
      past: "%s ago",
      s: " %ds",
      ss: "%d seconds",
      m: "%dm",
      mm: "%dm",
      h: "an h",
      hh: "%dh",
      d: "a day",
      dd: "%d days",

      M: "a month",
      MM: "%d months",
      y: "a year",
      yy: "%d years"
  const MINUTE_MS = 60000;

  useEffect(() => {
    const interval = setInterval(() => {
      console.log("Logs every minute");
    }, MINUTE_MS);

    return () => clearInterval(interval); // This represents the unmount function, in which you need to clear your interval to prevent memory leaks.
  }, []);

    You could set s and ss to "just now" and change both future and past into a function that doesn't prefix/suffix if the passed string is "just now".

    moment.updateLocale("en", {
      relativeTime: {
        future: (diff) => (diff == "just now" ? diff : `in ${diff}`),
        past: (diff) => (diff == "just now" ? diff : `${diff} ago`),
        s: "just now",
        ss: "just now"
    const _2_min_ago = moment().subtract(2, "minutes");
    const _20_sec_ago = moment().subtract(20, "seconds");
    const _20_sec_from_now = moment().add(20, "seconds");
    const _2_min_from_now = moment().add(2, "minutes");
