How to Convert UTC Date Time to Local Date Time in JavaScript

Topic: JavaScript / jQueryPrev|Next

Answer: Use the toString() Method

You can simply use the toString() method to convert UTC or GMT date time to local date time in JavaScript. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is a time zone and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is a time standard. Although GMT and UTC share the same current time in practice.

Let's try out the following example to understand how this method actually works:

<script>
    // Create date object from datetime string
    var date = new Date('Tue, 21 Apr 2020 09:20:30 GMT');
    
    // Coverting to local datetime 
    console.log(date.toString());
    
    // Coverting local datetime back to UTC
    console.log(date.toUTCString()); // Tue, 21 Apr 2020 09:20:30 GMT
</script>
