Change timezone on remote devices

The Settings app on an Android or iOS device enables you to set the timezone on the device. You can choose to set the timezone automatically by giving the Settings app the permission to use the current device location, or manually by entering the name of the country or city with your required timezone.

Live enables you to set the timezone manually on remote BrowserStack devices, to test your websites for timezone-based scenarios.

Supported devices

Devices running iOS 13 and higher.

All Android devices.

Change timezone

Important: Live does not support changing time zone and setting the time simultaneously on remote iOS devices.
  1. Log in to the Live dashboard.
  2. On the Live dashboard, select the device-browser combination to start your test session.
  3. On the Live toolbar, click Settings.
  4. Under iOS Settings on the Settings prompt, click General.
  5. Select the city and country of your choice, and click Update Time Zone.
    You see a message on the dashboard that the device timezone is updated.

After you select the city of your choice, the timezone of the selected city is automatically set on the BrowserStack real device.

Note: The Set Time Automatically setting is disabled by default. If you enable this setting, you cannot set timezone manually on the device.

On BrowserStack real Android devices, you can change the timezone by launching your Live test session and following the procedure mentioned in Google documentation.
