Can I convert time zone calculations (18:30 CEST to GMT+1 for example) with Google?

You can do that with WolframAlpha.

18:30 CEST to GMT+1

  • I used to use Google for small stuff but when I discovered WolframAlpha I was deeply impressed. At first because its ability to integrate/derive math functions. O:)

EveryTimeZone is a nice webapp that gives you a really quick simple view of the time (you can drag the 'current time' around) in various common time zones

  • This is a great little app that is perfect for figuring out what time it will be halfway across the world when you are trying to set up a time for a call with offshore teammates!

Google currently does not do time conversions but you can always ask Google the current time at a location. Just search for "time in <city>" (e.g. time in london).

That is the way I use to quickly get the time in a different location. Of course you still have to calculate the difference yourself.

EDIT: I just found out that this trick only works if the "interface language" for Google is set to English.


Permatime is a nice little site that sets up a URL for your event time and displays it in the viewers local time.

e.g. The 2010 World Cup Final in Johannesburg, South Africa.

  • I have not used permatime before, but it looks like an excellent suggestion. Commented Jul 12, 2010 at 17:03

Seems to be working now (in 2018):


I've found these:



Google supplies a reference page but doesn't seem to offer the service itself.


I really like timeanddate.com's interface and the Time Zone Converter near the bottom works well.
