How to get UTC (GMT) using javascript


To get Universal Time (UTC) or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) timestamp using javascript we need to use toUTCString() function on Date variable.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script>
function getUTC() {

  //Get timestamp in locale
  var tDate = new Date();

  //Convert timestamp in GMT/UTC format
  var utcDate = tDate.toUTCString();
  

  document.getElementById("utc").innerHTML = utcDate;
  console.log(utcDate);
}
</script>
</head>


<body onload="getUTC()">

<div id="utc"></div>

</body>
</html>

✏️ Note : There is no difference between GMT and UTC time.
