Daylight saving time has been used for many years in Brazil as a way to reduce electricity consumption in the country, taking advantage of the extra length of days during the summer period. However, studies carried out since 2017 revealed that the implementation of the measure started to cause greater expenses instead of savings, which led to its extinction last year.
Despite the cancellation, due to the way in which certain smartphones adjust their clocks, it is possible that many of them end up advancing their hours, still meeting daylight saving time. The alert was made by Google, which gave more information about why the time change could happen.
According to the company, smartphones use data from IANA, the Internet Number Assignment Authority, to be able to adjust their clocks appropriately. However, not all cell phones maintain synchronization with the IANA, which can lead to the implementation of daylight saving time. The search giant adds that this failure should happen mainly with cell phones running versions of systems prior to Android 10, in which there is a feature that facilitates this synchronization.
The eventual change can happen at 0h this Saturday (31), so keep an eye on not to miss your commitments. According to Google, the best way to prevent the hours from running out of time is to set your device time manually. To do this, follow the instructions below:
It is worth remembering that this is not the first time that the change in schedules has happened. The Mountain View giant came to warn of the problem in October last year, with the advance actually taking place the following day.
