How to convert a JavaScript date to UTC?
  • Last Updated : 22 Apr, 2019

The Javascript date can be converted to UTC by using functions present in Javascript Date object.
The toUTCString() method is used to convert a Date object into a string, according to universal time.
The toGMTString() returns a string which represents the Date based on the GMT (UT) time zone.

By default, JavaScript uses the browser’s time zone and display a date as a full-text string:
Fri Apr 12 2019 10:32:15 GMT+0530 (India Standard Time).

To create a new Date object we use javascript Date() constructor.


Syntax:

dateObj.toUTCString()

Example-1:




<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  
<head>
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <meta name="viewport"
          content="width=device-width, 
                   initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" 
          content="ie=edge">
    <title>
      Document
  </title>
</head>
  
<body>
    <div id="date">
  
    </div>
</body>
<script>
    var d = new Date();
    var n = d.toUTCString();
    var e = document.querySelector("#date");
    e.innerHTML = n;
</script>
  
</html>


Output:



Fri, 12 Apr 2019 05:14:31 GMT
