The getTimezoneOffset() method returns the time difference between Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) and local time, in minutes.

For example, If your time zone(Italy) is GMT+1, +60 will be returned.

Syntax

Date.getTimezoneOffset()

Sample Code


Result:

When the request is from Tampa, Florida result is

'The local time zone is: GMT -5'
