When does the NYT Spelling Bee come out?

The New York Times Spelling Bee, an engaging daily word puzzle, updates with a fresh set of letters at 3:00 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) each day.

Note that Eastern Time (ET) follows daylight saving time, which means that the clock is set forward by one hour in the spring (usually on the second Sunday in March) and set back by one hour in the fall (usually on the first Sunday in November). This means that the time the puzzle is released in your local time zone might change depending on whether daylight saving time is in effect.

Here is a table that shows the time the game is released in various time zones:

Time Zone Time
Pacific Time (PT, USA) 12:00 a.m. (midnight)
Mountain Time (MT, USA) 1:00 a.m.
Central Time (CT, USA) 2:00 a.m.
Eastern Time (ET, USA) 3:00 a.m. (Reference)
Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) 7 a.m. or 8 a.m.
British Summer Time (BST, UK) 8 a.m. or 9 a.m.
Central European Summer Time (CEST) 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.
Eastern European Summer Time (EEST) 10 a.m. or 11 a.m.
Indian Standard Time (IST) 12:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m.
China Standard Time (CST) 3 p.m. or 4 p.m.
Japan Standard Time (JST) 4 p.m. or 5 p.m.
Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) 5 p.m. or 6 p.m.

These conversions might change depending on whether daylight saving time is in effect. For example, during daylight saving time, which usually starts from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November in the U.S., the Eastern Time Zone is in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), which is UTC-4, instead of Eastern Standard Time (EST, UTC-5).

To get the most accurate conversion, you can use a reliable online timezone converter and input the specific date to take into account any changes due to daylight saving time.
