Zoom is showing an incorrect time offset when selecting EST

Issue/Question

Zoom is showing an incorrect GMT offset of -4 when I choose EST, why is that?

Environment

  • Zoom
  • Faculty, staff and students

Resolution

The offset for GMT or Greenwich Mean Time, is a dynamic offset. During the summer months in the Eastern Time Zone, daylight savings is in effect, which changes the offset to -4 hours. In the winter months, when daylight savings is not in effect, this offset will change to -5 hours.
