To add minutes in the current date-time, we use AddMinutes() method of DateTime class in C#.

Syntax:

    DateTime DateTime.AddMinutes(double);

AddMinutes() method accepts the value of the minutes as double and returns the DateTime object that can be parsed and updated date time can be found.

C# code to add minutes in current date time

using System;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //creating an object of DateTime class
            //and, initializing it with the current time 
            //using "Now"           
            DateTime dt1 = DateTime.Now;

            //printing current date time
            Console.WriteLine("Currnt date time is: " + dt1.ToString());
            
            //another DateTime object to store the updated date time
            //adding 15 minutes
            DateTime dt2 = dt1.AddMinutes(15);
            //updated date time is 
            Console.WriteLine("Updated date time is: " + dt2.ToString());

            //adding 2880 minutes (i.e. 2 days) in the time 
            dt2 = dt1.AddMinutes(2880);
            //updated date time is 
            Console.WriteLine("Updated date time is: " + dt2.ToString());

            //just to print a new line
            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
}

Output
