Show the UTC time in the menu bar and a Notification Center widget. This can be useful as a quick reference.

You can also quickly copy the date and time in ISO8601 format or a Unix timestamp. Example: 2021-03-16T06:32:15Z

There’s a setting for whether to show the date and “UTC” text in the menu bar and to launch at login.

The app is English-only but it will respect your system locale for the presentation of dates and times.

The app also comes with support for Shortcuts.

UTC is also known as GMT or Zulu time.

Use the feedback button in the app for support and feedback.

Super handy, light-weight utility!

I work for an organization with employees around the globe. UTC Time makes it easy to convey time with my colleagues in a way that doesn't assume or default to any particulary region. I made a small feature request to the dev and he responded— and implemented it— in a matter of few days. Check out his other offerings — Dato is an even more amazing menubar utility that implements a calendar, timezones, and more!

Amature Radio Operator

I am a Ham operator and use UTC time when recording my contacts. Its great to have it always displayed. I only wish that I could place next to my local time, but its better than none.

Developer Response ,

Hold the Command key and drag the menu bar item next to the system clock.
