The official time in Chile: the confusion that invaded social networks

What time is it? This is undoubtedly one of the most repeated questions on social networks since midnight this Sunday. The confusion, which has turned the hashtag CambioDeHora into one of the most commented trends on Twitter during this day, originated due to the change to daylight saving time that was originally scheduled for today.

Last August 9, The Ministry of the Interior and Security announced through a statement that the time change was postponed to September 10, to avoid confusion considering that this day the voting of the exit plebiscite takes place. Due to the postponement made by the Government, the vast majority of technological devices made the change automatically, which generated confusion among people.

Currently, the time zone is GMT-4, therefore, the winter time that began last April is maintained. Therefore, It is currently 2:20 p.m. in Continental Chile, 3:20 p.m. in the Magallanes Region and Chilean Antarctica, and 12:20 p.m. in insular Chile.

If you want to know the current time, go to the official website of the Navy Hydrographic and Oceanographic Service.

If your phone automatically changed the time, it is important that you manually make the change and thus avoid confusion. If it is a device iPhone, to make the modification you must go to “settings”, then to the “general” option and finally to “date and time”. Being within that configuration you must deactivate “automatically define”, which will allow you to select the time manually.

In the case of devices Android, you must go to “settings, then “additional settings”, select “date and time” and deactivate the option to “use network time”. Once this change has been made, you can define the time manually, and I can correct the time.

It is important to remember that the time change will take place next week, so it is important that you revert the changes you made this time.
