 Hi, the greeting at the top left of the new tab page currently shows the temperature in Farenheit, which is quite useless in regions where it's not used at all. 

 

I hope it's a planned feature to choose the temperature unit based on locale/language settings (I have English UK as my top language right now, and I'm getting Farenheit)

 

Thank you :)

Same problem here @mrislam 

Changing the languages in Edge settings doesn't do the trick. 

Hi @mrislam 

wasn't this posted few hours ago? cause I'm sure I posted a comment on it but seems to have disappeared now 

Oh weird @HotCakeX, but I had searched prior to posting and just found discussion on a country flag on the new tab page, and a comment on an update summary from October. Thought a separate thread could be helpful to highlight this issue

Same problem here @mrislam. Has anyone found a way to change it?

@dakikz Actually, the issue resolved over time for me, probably after some update a few weeks ago… I'm on the dev channel by the way

what is your locale/country set to?

@HotCakeX I had same issue after one update (dev channel), I reported to Edge team... for now it is fixed (lest say it was fixed 5-7 days ago). 

 

Anyway I had exactly same issue, it displayed °F instead °C.
