According to ISO data, 249 countries are operating at different time zones in the world today. Each country has its people, culture, heritage, language, etc. The digital world distinguishes people based on their country of origin for distinct reasons. A time zone is a region with a standard time. There are over 24 different Time zones for the world. Working with the Time zone and country is highly critical in this digital era.
Time zone data is essential in sending, storing, receiving, and displaying them to the users. If your application needs to show time zone-specific events or data to a user, you will need to retrieve the Time zone from where the application has been used or browsed.
