Use Google Calendar in different time zones

You can change your time zone and create events with certain time zones. This helps if you'll be traveling when the event happens, or if you're creating events for people in different time zones.

You can change your time zone and create events in certain time zones. No matter where you create an event, everyone will see it in their own time zone. This can help with travel plans or make it easy to create events for people around the world.

Daylight savings time

Google Calendar uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to help avoid issues with daylight savings time.

When events are created, they're converted into UTC, but you'll always see them in your local time.

If an area switches their time zone, events created before we knew about the change might be in the wrong time zone.
