As we come to another seasonal shift, with that comes our mental shift by altering our sense of reality by an hour (for most people). This is a friendly reminder from all of us here at TalkAndroid to check your clock settings for your Android devices, just so you don’t sleep in tomorrow for work.
If you’re like me, you use your Android device for multiple alarms, reminders, meetings and appointments, therefore having the time set correctly is a must! Your Android OS should handle the Daylight Saving Time shift without any issues, however, it’s best to be prudent, and check it anyway.
Here’s how you can do that;
- Slide open Applications, or from your Home Screen, press Menu.
- then press Settings
- then scroll to Date and Time and press
- you’ll likely see it set to “Automatic” from your wireless provider
Here is where you can decide to trust your wireless provider, or set it yourself by removing the check beside “Automatic”. If you go manual, check your time zone as well.
Your clock should have already adjusted by the time you read this article, therefore you most likely won’t need to worry about this, but it’s good to be sure.
