For Alexa to adjust for Daylight Savings Time, your date and time settings must be accurate. On iPhones, Androids, and macOS devices, the automatic time and date setting option include DST adjustments. So if you have these devices, your work is done!
However, if your device doesn’t have the automatic time and date setting option, or you want to double-check that everything is set up correctly, you can manually adjust it. Usually, this function is turned on by default on most devices, but just in case, check under Settings>Date & Time.
Once you’re there, make sure the “Set automatically” box is checked, and Alexa will do all of the hard work for you come November when we ‘spring forward’ into Daylight Savings Time!
How to adjust Alexa for daylight savings time
There is no way to adjust the clock automatically. The first step to changing your Alexa device for daylight savings time is right-clicking “My Computer” and going to the “Android” tab.
The next step is searching for “How do I calibrate my Android phone?” To learn how much swap space you need on Linux, search for “How much swap space do I need Linux?”
For help transferring files between two Android phones, search for, “How do I transfer files between two Android phones? Windows.”
To learn about the differences between Windows 7 and Windows 10 or how to open a file with a different app on an Android device without using another app altogether (for example, opening .mp3 files in VLC), search ‘Windows’ or ‘Apple.’

How to change Alexa for daylight savings time
In the United States, daylight savings time begins on the second Sunday of March and ends on the first Sunday of November. We “spring forward” one hour and “fall back” one hour during this time. This can be a little confusing for our devices, which is why Amazon has made it easy to change Alexa’s settings.
To change your device’s location, select the Devices icon in the Alexa app and then Device Location. Enter your complete address, and then select Save. To change the country, select Change next to the country name. If a user wants to set their time zone manually, they can do so by selecting Edit > Time Zone and then clicking on a new time zone.
It may be helpful to know that many other countries also observe daylight savings time–including Canada, Mexico, most of Europe, Australia, New Zealand…the list goes on! So if you’re traveling during this time or just want your Echo to match your local time zone (rather than U.S. Eastern Time), it’s easy to make the switch.
How to make Alexa aware of daylight savings time
It’s that time of year again when we have to remember to change our clocks for daylight savings time manually. But what if there was a way to make Alexa do all the work for us? It turns out, there is! Most devices have an automatic adjustment setting for daylight savings time, so you have to check your device settings and confirm that it’s turned on.
The automatic DST adjustment setting can be found in the device settings or in the user guide for most devices. If you can’t find it or if you’re using a Windows device, don’t worry–we’ve got you covered. Simply follow these instructions, and Alexa will handle everything for you:
First, open the Amazon Alexa app on your mobile device.
Next, tap on the menu button in the top left corner of the screen and select Settings from the list.
Now scroll down and select Date & Time under General Preferences.
Ensure that Automatic Adjustment for Daylight Saving Time is set to ON (see image below).
Tap OK to save your changes. That’s it! Now when daylight savings time begins, Alexa will automatically update your clock without any effort from you.

How to make sure daylight savings time doesn’t trip up Alexa
Daylight savings time can be a little confusing, especially when it comes to adjusting your clocks. Thankfully, there are some simple steps you can take to make sure everything runs smoothly–and that Alexa doesn’t miss a beat.
First and foremost, make sure your devices are automatically set to adjust for daylight savings time. This setting is usually turned on by default, but you’ll want to double-check in case something has changed. If the automatic adjustment option is not enabled on your device(s), you will need to manually change the time zone each year when DST begins.
In addition, your Alexa-enabled devices must be connected to the internet in order for Alexa’s built-in DST settings to work properly. If you’re having any issues with automatic adjustments, try restarting your devices or checking your router’s connection status.
Last but not least, if you’d like to disable Alexa’s built-in DST settings altogether, you can do so by manually adjusting the time zone on your device(s). Just keep in mind that this will also disable all of Alexa’s other time features (such as alarms and timers) until the time zone is set back to Automatic.
How to keep Alexa on schedule during daylight savings time
In order to keep Alexa on schedule during daylight savings time, you will need to create a routine. The routine should be named “Lamp on,” and another routine should be named “Lamp off.” The first routine in your list of routines should be called “Lamp on” with a time of Sunset. Sunset is 30 minutes after midnight before daylight savings time begins.
During daylight savings time, Alexa needs to be scheduled for five days. The routine will run from Monday through Friday, with no specific day off in between.
How to make the most of Alexa during daylight savings time
Daylight savings time can be a confusing time for many people. Thankfully, Alexa is here to help! If you want to make sure that your devices are set automatically for daylight savings time, there are a few things you can do.
Most smartphones and devices have the option to automatically adjust their clocks for daylight savings time. You can usually find this setting in your device’s settings menu. Additionally, many internets and cellular data providers will also change their services during DST. To check if your provider has made any changes, you can visit their website or contact customer service.
Even if your device doesn’t have the automatic adjustment setting turned on, you may still be able to change the time manually. Each year, the module responsible for handling daylight savings is added to Alexa’s configuration file. This means that you can set the time on your Echo devices manually by using the following command: “Alexa, set my clock to Daylight Savings Time.”
How to get the most out of Alexa during daylight savings time
Daylight savings time can be a confusing time for many people. Your Echo may be affected by the time change, and you may need to adjust some settings to make sure everything is working correctly. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of Alexa during daylight savings time:
To change the time format on Alexa, open the Alexa app and tap on “Routines.” Tap on “Date & Time” and select “24-hour time”. This will change from AM/PM to 24 hours a day. Always reset your clock after changing it to know what time it is when talking to other devices via Bluetooth or an internet connection!
The wrong time is usually caused by daylight savings changes or an expired Wi-Fi connection. If your Echo isn’t displaying the correct time, try restarting it or checking your Wi-Fi settings.
You can show large clocks using the “display large clock” command and chimes every hour using “Alexa, tell me what’s my next alarm.” You can also set a timer to automatically allow Alexa to turn lights off at dusk or nightfall, based on your preferences (e.g., sunset).
