Microsoft Teams – Get your dates right – moving time zone

Have you noticed that in Microsoft Teams all dates are always in American format:

Microsoft Teams - Get your dates right - moving time zone Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams datewrong

This is fine when you are based in the US but not when you are in the rest of the world. The US is used to MONTH/DAY but in the UK we prefer DAY/MONTH. How can you solve this? First go to the settings:

Microsoft Teams - Get your dates right - moving time zone Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams settings

Then Select the right language:

Microsoft Teams - Get your dates right - moving time zone Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Teams settingslanguage

and restart Microsoft Teams and my date format is now as expected.
