Once a year it is necessary to check all the clocks in your house and possibly to move one hour ahead in connection with the start of summertime. We show you how to set and control the summer time on your Android.
Summer time on your Android
Summer time starts once a year; the clock is moved forward one hour at two o’clock in the morning, which unfortunately means that you can sleep an hour shorter. In principle, changing the time on an Android device is automatic, but it is good to check this with your smartphone or tablet.
- First, go to ‘Settings> Date and time’;
- Check whether the time zone is set to Amsterdam (GMT +1), so that it automatically adjusts to the summer time of our region, the so-called Central European standard time;
- You can disable the automatic time and time zone if you want to determine it manually. Note: when the winter time starts, you also have to manually adjust the time again.
Daylight saving time starts on these days
Daylight Saving Time is the time that is used during the summer and the clock is set 1 hour ahead. By doing this, the period of daylight and the period that people are awake are most similar. Daylight saving time from 2019 runs until Sunday 27 October.
In Europe, daylight saving time runs from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October. Then the clock goes back 1 hour and we continue in the winter time. Below you will find the precise dates for daylight saving time 2019, daylight saving time 2020 and so on.
