Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings
Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?
Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.
The team is working on fixing date/time format to honor your computer settings. Please stay tuned for further updates.
I have been calling for this since Day 1, having been an early adopter. Still not resolved, but I can have a childish robot background? Come on and bring me the real productivity!

Worked on this since last summer, why does this take so long time? Will it come under Ignite this week?
Please enable this. Since COVID we are hiring people all over world. And need consistent time zone.
wait, so 24 hour time is a FEATURE?
is this a joke?
Patrick Williamson commented
This is beyond a joke!
Why is this still unresolved?
It is a nuisance. If it is a problem to have two I suggest you skip the A.M/P.M thing instead.
I am waiting too, they say Rome was not build in one day, but I assume it took not that long...
still waiting for this. hello engineers, the rest of the world uses NOT your date/time format.
excuse my french, but what the **** are the probably 1000 engineers working on teams doing? there are dozens of these utterly basic feature requests which have been posted _years_ ago. what point does this uservoice even serve? "team is working on it, stay tuned, unfortunately it is a major task to enable 24 hour clock, expect it shipping in 2040"
This is a much needed update for all of us living in 24h areas (i.e. all of EU) :)
Why in god's name is this still pending?
Well, BB, you do have a point.
And Eric - happy hearing you started breathing again. This is not worth stopping for ...
can it be so hard to work on it? Still not done?

Current date is 22-01-2021.
I still stay tuned.
Indeed I stopped holding my breath...
Stay tuned but don't hold your breath as it could be detrimental to your health
You need to understand that Americans are not suited to work in an international environment. Though having multiple years of international experience in Microsoft as a company, it seems we cannot expect the development team behind Teams to take rational formats into consideration.
Seriously, why is this limbo since last July? Why was the app ever coded not to honor the date/time settings of the device it's running on?
Anders Ohlsson commented
C'mon, this issue needs to be fixed asap Microsoft! Not cool to keep us waiting forever for this!
Tip to all hating this issue:
As a workaround I'm using App language=English (United Kingdom) instead of English (United States) which fixes most AM/PM **** however in the Calendar view it is still present.
Why is this taking years??????
