BUG report: Ring Intercom - notification date/time format

The Ring Intercom Unlock (and possibly Talk) notification is using MM/DD/YY date format when the Android 10 phone is set to DD/MM/YYYY date format (eg. UK region).

Example below:

Obviously the date on the notification should be 30/10/2022.

In addition, the time format on this phone is set to 24 hour, so the use of 12 hour formatting for the time is incorrect too.

Presumably the US preference for date and time formats has been hard-coded into the Notification system, which is pretty much unacceptable in a professional product with a global target audience.

In Techie parlance: Ring, please localise your notification dates and times.

Hi @neilm-uk. Thanks for you feedback on this! I’ve brought this up to the team working with the Ring Intercom. Rest assured, your concern will be looked into. I understand that different areas of the world display their time/date differently, so I’ve advocated that the Ring app notifications reflect this. If there is an update on this, I’ll be sure to post it here. Thanks, neighbour!

Thanks @Tom_Ring - the rest of the World outside of the USA will appreciate your efforts! :joy:
