I have been checking through the Home app and I am unable to find an option to change to standard time. My device was previously on military time (when connected to my Google Nest), but although I have changed that setting and reset the next it is still on military time. Can anyone help?

Hey there James,


I'm sorry about the late response, I appreciate your patience! Were you able to change that setting? If not, I'd be happy to help you out. Go ahead and give these steps a try:

  • Open the Google Home app.
  • Tap on your device.
  • Tap on the gear in the top-right.
  • Tap on Device information.
  • Tap on Time format.
  • Choose either 12-hour or 24-hour.

That's it! Let me know if that works for you, and if you had any other questions or concerns, feel free to let me know.


Best regards,
